How does cable Internet access compare to other access options?

access options. First there is the service cycle for ordering and
installation. This is how long you will have to wait for your modem
and service to be installed and operational once you order it. Next,
you must figure the cost of equipment, installation and monthly
service. And finally, you must evaluate the speed of the Internet
