The Web-access via Cable providers may be very popular and fast: Now there are connections in lots of cities at speeds over 50 Mbit / s and there is not any end in sight. But what is it that makes the Cable TV DSL access providers that popular? Simple: price and even performance.
Now the Cable Companies (Kabel DSL Anbieter) get more and more customers.
When comparing Cable web DSL offerings with current internet connections you will find that Cable internet providers quite often offer faster lines. But why? For the Cable-access web providers utilize the Cable TV technique to establish the Internet connection. That is possible because the wire signals can now come to be transmitted in either directions.
In contrast towards traditional Internet, the distance to your distributor plays a moderate role, since the Cable access will be realized with digital data networks. The use of old Cable lines is simply not necessary. There is no dependence from any provider of the “last mile”. With traditional DSL Internet connections, the ISPs are always have to work with another provider who has got the last Cable from the distributor towards the house of the DSL customer. It’s no secret that these traditional DSL companies due to different business interests often tend not to work together perfectly. We could hear of failed appointments for the activation and similar problems. Many Internet Users know these problems.
These problems are not there for the lead web access providers. Because these companies also get access to the “last mile” they don’t have to negotiate with yet another company. In addition to the technical advantage, there is also a very tough economical one. The DSL providers must pay a monthly fee to the owner of the last mile (about 10 EUR each month). The Cable Online providers do not. They are in a good position, such as Mobile Internet providers who often also have an All-Net-Flat available.
