Television providers are the main source for cable Internet service, since they can re-purpose pre-existing TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable can often make sense for Crescent residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Fiber uses future-proofed fiber-optical lines made of thousands of glass strands that deliver binary data as light. Fiber outputs stronger speed and reliability, although it may switch over to coaxial cables in the "last mile" near subscribers. Coaxial last mile connections hamper performance, but they are almost always a grade higher than regular cable/DSL.
