Cable Internet Service

In telecommunications, cable Internet access, shortened to cable Internet, is a form of broadband Internet access in which infrastructure previously used solely for cable television carries digital Internet. Like digital subscriber line and fiber to the premises services, cable Internet access provides network edge connectivity (last mile access) from the Internet service provider to an end user.

It is integrated into the cable television infrastructure analogously to DSL which uses the existing telephone network. Cable TV networks and telecommunications networks are the two predominant forms of residential Internet access. Recently, both have seen increased competition from fiber deployments, wireless, and mobile networks.
