Television programming available for a fee to a subscriber, and delivered to his household via cable.
This is a type of broadband connection in which you connect to the internet via the high bandwidth cable used for pay TV. Cable access is at least several times faster than traditional dial-up internet connections. Cable access requires the purchase of a cable modem to operate.
A modem that allows communication data to travel over television cables (either coaxial or fibre optic) as opposed to regular telephone lines. See also ADSL, Dial Up
Speaker cables consisting of either many copper strands (Multistrand) or a single larger strand (Solid Core). Some cables are designed to be directional, so look out for arrows on the cable casing. Also used to describe cable television services that use a fibre-optic cable to send transmissions from the relay station to the customer's receiver.
Cable technologies use existing cable TV infrastructure (network) that your cable company uses for TV signals, to transmit data to and from the Internet. Since cable TV was designed as a broadcast system, the cable is shared amongst the users in your neighborhood and is considered high speed or broadband Internet access.

The cable you choose to connect your dish to your receiver is very important when it comes to picture quality. Specially-designed Skyvision cables keep your picture crystal clear. Skyvision provides a variety of coaxial cable and cable assemblies, as well as stereo cable, audio cable, video cable, Y adapters, jump cables, and cable connectors, clips, wall plate, under-door options, water seal, etc. See Distribution.
The technology which uses fibre optic cable to deliver services such as telephone, television and a broadband connection to homes and businesses.
The name given to the device that links your home to the local exchange for some types of broadband connection.
A broadband transmission technology using coaxial cable or fiber-optic lines. First used for TV, it is now also being used for Internet access. Cable can transfer data downstream to your computer at speeds much faster than DSL can. The actual speed a user gets, however, depends on variables including the modem's throughput capability, the maximum throughput per user your cable service has set, and the number of other users sharing your neighborhood connection at any one time.
A broadband transmission technology using coaxial cable or fiber-optic lines that was first used for TV and is now being used for Internet access.
Cable TV network comprised of fiber and/or coaxial cable. Modern cable networks can use cable modems to enable two-way high-speed Internet access.
Cable modem service enables cable operators to provide broadband using the same coaxial cables that deliver pictures and sound to your TV set. Most cable modems are external devices that have two connections, one to the cable wall outlet and the other to a computer. There may be different speeds available, as with DSL. 6Mbps should be sufficient. Comcast is well known provider of this kind of internet service.
The term cable Internet access (or simply cable) refers to the delivery of Internet service over a special type of modem that is designed to modulate a data signal over cable television infrastructure. Cable modems are primarily used to deliver broadband Internet access, taking advantage of unused bandwidth on a cable television network. There were 22.5 million cable modem users in the United States in 2005.
This is a modem that operates over television cable lines. The coaxial cable provides a greater bandwidth than phone lines, and a cable modem can achieve fast access to the Web.
In the context of computer data transfer, a technology which enables data to be carried over coaxial television cable. Existing cable services are very fast, but asymmetric, and the bandwidth of a given cable connection is shared among several users. A cable modem provides users with high-speed Internet access through a cable television network at more than 1 Mbps. Cable modems are typically external devices that are placed next to your computer. Cable modems typically connect to computers through a standard 10Base-T Ethernet interface. Unlike DSL, which provides point-to-point traffic to the ISP, cable is a shared network in that end users within an area are sharing the line.
Video distribution system that uses coaxial cable (or fiber optics) to transmit TV signals to subscribers.
A cable television network such as HBO, or cable television in general.
The generic name given to services which use fibre optic cable buried underground to carry telephone, television and broadband to your home.
