Fiber-Optic (CAT5 or ethernet) cables are slightly thicker than a phone line. Coaxial cables are a single pin screw in connection. fiber optics can handle far more data, and a lot faster that a coaxial connection.

The difference between baseband coaxial and broadband coaxial cable is baseband coaxial technology uses digital signaling in which the cable carries only one type of digital signal. Where as the broadband coaxial technology typically transmits analog signals and is capable of transmitting multiple frequencies of data simultaneously.
