Best Answer

Cable modem connects through fibre optic DLS through phone line. Cable boasts faster speed than DSL internet in theory. However, cable does not always deliver on the promise in everyday practical use. Cable modem services can slow down significantly if many people in your neighborhood access the Internet simultaenously. Both cable modem and DSL performance vary from one minute to the next depending on the pattern of use and traffic congestion on the Internet. DSL and cable Internet providers often implement so-called "speed caps" that limit the bandwidth of their services. Some home networks cannot match the speed of the Internet connection, lowering your performance
