Cable Broadband is split into two categories - symmetrical & asymmetrical. The difference is in sending & receiving data. In a symmetrical system the power is equal for both ways. Asymmetrical offers you less power for downloading data and more for sending it. Asymmetrical is more popular for personal use since it's a cheaper & easier service to implement. However, if you're a small business owner (working at home) that sends and receives a tremendous amount of data you probably need a symmetrical cable service. Just be prepared. Since symmetrical is not as common and requires more power, this service tends to be more expensive. Then again, time is money.
