What is Broadband Cable?

The Cable Connection:

The top two methods of bringing broadband to your home is either through your phone (DSL) or through broadband cable. Both use the bandwidth to accomplish this. However, if you're looking for a more powerful hook up, cable might be your best bet. For the most part cable offers users consistently more power than DSL. A lot of this has to do with the way cable is pumped into your home. DSL generates its broadband through one area called a central office. It then sends the signal to homes using phone wires. Cable is a tad different. It does have a central area called the (head-end). However, there are also mini distribution points that distribute the cable to blocks of homes. This way you don't need to live near the main office to receive a strong signal, like DSL.
