High Speed Internet in Boston

Compare Cable vs. DSL

Why choose cable high-speed Internet service over DSL? Three words: fiber-optic technology. As one of the first to use fiber-optic cable, we're able to deliver unsurpassed connection speeds.


High-Speed Internet

WAY Faster Than DSL


With download speeds up to 110 Mbps (110 speed not available in Chicago or Lehigh Valley), cable high-speed Internet offers WAY faster connections than DSL. And unlike DSL, your Internet speed is not dependent on how far your home is from a central hub. You can download music, upload photos and stream videos quickly and easily.

High-Speed Internet

Sweet Customer Satisfaction


With cable Internet service, you get added reliability, fewer service disruptions and quicker installation. And with DSL, you might have to "log in" for service. With cable, you're always connected so you never miss an important email or online auction. All that, and free 24/7 technical support.

Fiber-Optics = Savings For You


Fiber-optic cables cost us quite a bit to install because they're so fragile and difficult to splice, but you don't see a penny of that cost. Why? Because we're dedicated to delivering the highest level of service at the lowest price. That, and we just really like fiber-optic cables...


The Magic of Fiber

Fiber-optic cable consists of bundles of glass threads that transmit data over light waves.

  • Because fiber-optic cables have a greater bandwidth than metal wires, they can carry more data.

  • Fiber-optic cables are less susceptible than metal wires to interference.

  • Data can be transmitted over greater distances and with greater reliability than metal wires.
