What is cable internet?
Cable internet is a fast and widely available type of internet in the US that uses the same infrastructure as cable TV. Almost 9 out of 10 Americans can get it in their area from a huge variety of providers across the country.
It can download at speeds over 1000 Mbps, which is great for most people. But it has slower upload speeds than fiber internet, and it can slow down during busy hours in some areas.
The speed you receive often depends on how many people in your area are connected to the Internet at the same time. Your connection may be noticeably slower if you are online during peak hours.
Still, it's much better than DSL or satellite internet, and it's often easy to install if you already have cable TV.
