Cable Access

Cable access is becoming more widespread than DSL connection. With the failure of several of the smaller DSL providers such as Flashcomm, it's easy to see why consumers turn to the cable companies. Providers who just provide DSL service have had a harder time than companies that provide a mix of services, such as cable companies. It's hard to state specific reasons why a number of DSL providers have failed.

The coaxial cable connection you have coming into your home provides the Internet connection through the same line as your cable TV and is easy to bundle with your cable service. It is not even necessary to have cable TV reception to have Internet access. Cable service is an always-on connectivity. Many ISPs offer DSL, but to get cable access, you must go through the cable companies.
