Cable Internet is sold by former residential television operators, who use their already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Telephone providers are the main source for DSL Internet service, which makes technical sense because DSL sends Internet data via telephone lines. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted and bundled copper construction seen in telephone lines provides a lower bandwidth ceiling than cable and several times less than fiber.
