What is the difference in broadband service

What is the difference in broadband service

"Broadband" is a term used to refer to high-speed internet connections.  Connections via cable modem and Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) are frequently referred to as broadband Internet connections. "Bandwidth" is the term used to describe the relative speed of a network connection -- for example, most current dial-up modems can support a bandwidth of 56 kbps (thousand bits per second). There is no set bandwidth threshold required for a connection to be referred to as "broadband," but it is typical for connections in excess of 1 Megabit per second (Mbps) to be so named.

 

What is cable modem access?

A cable modem allows a single computer (or network of computers) to connect to the Internet via the cable TV networking system. The cable modem usually has an Ethernet  connection to the computer and is capable of speeds of 5 Mbps or more.

Typical speeds tend to be lower than the maximum, however, since cable providers turn entire neighborhoods into networks that share the same bandwidth.  Because of this sharing of the bandwidth, cable modem users may experience somewhat slower network performance during times of peak demand. You may also be more susceptible to risks such as packet sniffing and unprotected windows shares than users with other types of connectivity.  That’s where Firewalls and Routers can keep your neighbors from browsing your last vacation pictures.

What is DSL?

Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Internet connectivity, unlike cable modem-based service, provides the user with dedicated bandwidth. However, the maximum bandwidth available to DSL users is usually lower than the maximum cable modem rate because of differences in their respective network technologies. Also, the "dedicated bandwidth" is only dedicated between your home and the DSL provider's central office -- the providers offer little or no guarantee of bandwidth all the way across the Internet. Because you have a dedicated line to your provider, internet performance is less likely to slow down when internet traffic is at its peak.

DSL access is not as susceptible to packet sniffing as cable modem access, but many of the other security risks will  apply to both DSL and cable modem access.
