Quite simply, cable internet uses local TV cable lines to access the internet. Along with DSL, cable provides high speed internet access and is referred to as broadband internet access. This is due to its wide bandwidth, which allows approximately 500-700 kbps and 128 kbps of data to download and upload respectively. The bandwidth from the cable provider is shared by other cable internet users in your area. As a result, your internet connection may slow down when many local users access the service at the same time. However, cable internet is still on average 20-70 times faster than dial up internet access. And unlike DSL, cable internet is not affected by the distance between the internet provider and your home.
As cable internet uses the same signal (line) as your cable TV, there's no need to "dial up" to access the internet; the service is "always on". The cable signal is split between internet access and the TV through a cable modem, which is provided by your internet service provider.
