AT&T® offers broadband internet to thousands of households and individual consumers in the United States. The telecom conglomerate offers the triple play plans, which bundle home phone with internet and satellite TV. The broadband is transmitted via relayed fiber cable networks. The networks stretch the AT&T® broadband to households via telephone, Ethernet, or coaxial cable.
In fact, AT&T® also gives the Fiber-To-The-Home internet in select American states. It can be said that AT&T® is the fastest internet provider in the US, as they offer the best internet connection to most parts of the country. Come to think of it, Cox Communications® is another which delivers broadband via hybrid fiber coaxial network.
Coaxial Cable Transmits Cox® Broadband
Cox® internet transmits data through gen-next fiber optic cables. The coaxial cable diverts a particular fiber cable network in a neighborhood to the households nearby. In fact, a Cox® network may serve more than 2000 households in a region. The coaxial cable transmits the broadband data too at high speeds.
Choosing Between Household Needs
The broadband subscribers have plenty to consider when choosing between the two fastest internet providers in the US. Both the AT&T® DSL network and Cox® coaxial network offers similar speed and rates. The choice of selecting between the two is left to the broadband needs of a household and their data usage.
