QUESTION: I’m moving to a new house where I can use either DSL or cable internet service, so which is better?

ANSWER: Getting a solid internet connection has become a vital resource for us all, so doing your homework before you move should be on everyone’s checklist.

The primary difference in these two services is in how they physically connect you to the internet.

DSL, which stands for Digital Subscriber Line, makes use of traditional landline phone wires while cable internet providers have to install coaxial cables in the ground.

These coaxial cables were originally installed for cable TV services, but in the mid-90’s the technology to use the same cable for internet services was introduced.
