Cable Broadband Guide

We explain how cable broadband works and when its likely to be a good option for you.

Cable broadband is brought into your home via the fibre optic cables used to supply cable TV. Because of this cable broadband is often offered in packages comprised of both TV channels and inclusive phone calls, making it an economical option.

Theoretically, cable broadband can reach higher speeds than the ADSL alternative; however it is also more susceptible to fluctuations in service which can sometimes eliminate this advantage.

It often makes a difference to your service reliability how old the fibre optic cables in your area are and your distance from the local telephone exchange.

However, if everything is in place in your area a cable internet connection enables you to seamlessly download large files, stream live TV and broadcasts, have real time conversations and make video calls that other connections struggle with.

If you choose to go with any of the cable broadband UK providers, it will be necessary for an engineer to come and install this service by running a wire from the main cable line in the street to an external cable box in your home. Cable broadband providers then connect your television, phone and computer.

Due to the difficulty and additional cost of installation, you need to take it into account with the overall package when you compare cable broadband, to get the best cable broadband deals.

Although cable internet providers are slowly increasing coverage for cable broadband across the UK, it still only covers approximately 50% of homes, with cable broadband connections still unavailable in the more rural parts of the country.

However, if you are in an area where cable broadband is available (check on the cable provider's site for covered postcodes) and want to have access to cable television, it can prove to be an economical way of connecting to the internet.
