In one word � yes. Most cable companies offer high-speed internet access through cable. You can avail of these services by asking your cable company if they provide them and then subscribing for them.

Here is how you can get internet through Cable Television; and also its advantages.

Internet through cable (sometimes called "cablenet") is a high speed service that is directly delivered to your computers via cables and there is no need for a phone line and connection. It is available 24 hours and 7 days a week for a flat monthly rate so you can save a lot on your telephone bill, depending on your current internet set-up.

Requirements: To access internet through cable you need to have a computer with a minimum memory of 16 MB and a windows 95 operating system or higher. If you use a Macintosh then you need an 8.0 system or higher. Your computer needs to have a Network Interface card (NIC) or a Universal Serial Bus (USB). If you have neither, the cable company can install it for you.

Benefits: Cable internet gives you very fast services and you can download Web pages in a matter of seconds. E-mail can be viewed in a jiffy, and downloading files which takes minutes through a dial-up, can be done in seconds through cable internet. Essentially all services through cable internet can be up to 30 times faster than a regular dial-up service. Most cable internet packages also include an e-mail address and some megabytes of personal web space.

You will also need a cable modem, which is generally supplied by the cable company. This is the device which allows you to access data and information when you are using cable internet. Internet through cable is not possible without a cable modem. A cable modem usually has two connections; one to the wall outlet, and one to your computer. Cable modems are generally external devices, but you can get a few that are built-in into your computer. The cable company usually provides you with a cable modem but you can use your own if you have one, provided it is compatible to the internet system.

Dual Use: cable companies use separate channels for video and data services, so you can use your computer and watch television at the same time without being restricted to just one activity.

Yeah. As long as they want to provide it, they can; they have the technology. I just got hooked up last week. plus they are the cheapest provider in the country. The Shadester.
