Cable connections use coaxial cable to deliver internet and pay TV services to your home. Cable internet connections are generally faster than ADSL connections.
ADSL connections use the copper phone line to deliver internet, and still allow you to use the line for a home phone service. ADSL speeds can vary depending on the distance to the exchange.
There are different types of fixed broadband technologies available depending on your address. Check what’s available at your address.
