Installed by your local TV cable company, cable is a means of connecting to the Internet using TV cable lines. It is faster than dialup modems, which use telephone lines. Not available in all areas, the speed of your connection will increase dramatically to about 2.5 Mbps for uploading and to 27 Mbps for downloading, depending on the cable company's connection to the Internet. Special cable would have to be installed in your neighborhood.
