The availability of so many choices has made the market very competitive, leading internet service providers (ISPs) to offer higher speeds, lower prices and affordable deals to customers.

The following explains how cable, DSL, fiber optic and satellite internet works and the benefits and limitations of each service type.

Cable Internet Providers in Harvey, IA

Cable companies that provide TV and phone service also provide high-speed cable internet in Harvey, IA. Cable internet service involves the provider using coaxial or fiber-optic cables to connect each user with the provider’s nearest office. The cable hooks up to the user’s modem, and the modem then receives internet service through bandwidth from the cable company’s TV channels. It’s easy to check out the best cable internet options in an area with Voip-Info.org’s broadband comparison tool.

Since internet service doesn’t require much bandwidth, cable companies don’t have a hard time offering internet service with TV service. Cable companies in Harvey, IA typically offer many kinds of bundle packages, allowing customers to choose whatever combination of internet, phone and TV service they want. If a customer already has phone or TV service through a cable company, he can add internet any time because the cable company just needs to go to his house to install a modem and connect it. One big benefit of cable internet is that the internet speed is the same regardless of distance, because the modem is directly connected to the cable company’s office.

The downside of cable internet is the potential for slowdowns if many users in one area are using the same provider and the same bandwidth. This is more likely to occur when users are doing bandwidth-heavy tasks, such as watching high-definition videos.

One thing customers in Harvey, IA should make sure to check with bundle packages is that they’re getting a discount by bundling. There are times where it costs less to purchase services separately than to bundle. Finding the best deal is simple when customers use the tools available through Voip-Info.org.

Fiber Optic Internet Providers in Harvey, IA

Customers interested in the most technologically advanced internet service will want to go with fiber-optic internet in Harvey, IA, also known as FiOS. This type of internet service functions the same as cable for the customer, but since it uses a fiber-optic network, it’s faster. TV and phone services are also available with a fiber-optic network, so customers can still bundle the three together.

DSL Internet in Harvey, IA

DSL is an abbreviation for digital subscriber line, and it’s a type of internet service that works through the user’s analog phone line. The phone line allows the user to access bandwidth, and DSL internet uses extra bandwidth for the user’s internet connection. This type of internet uses a DSL modem which connects the computer to the internet provider. The provider uses a digital subscriber line access multiplexer, or DSLAM, to connect its customers to the internet. Voip-Info.org offers comparisons of DSL providers in Harvey, IA.

A phone call doesn’t use much bandwidth, so customers in Harvey, IA can use DSL internet service while talking on their phones. One advantage DSL has over cable is that the number of users doesn’t affect the speed, so the DSL provider can offer high speeds to many customers in the same area. Even though a cable provider could be advertising higher speeds, a DSL provider might deliver higher speeds because it won’t be affected by the number of customers.

However, DSL speeds depend on how far the user is from the provider’s office. At longer distances, customers will experience slower connections. That’s why customers who are considering DSL should read reviews of the providers available in their areas so they know what to expect. DSL internet service also requires an analog phone line, so if a customer doesn’t have one, he’ll need to have it installed before he can get DSL internet.

Satellite Internet in Harvey, IA

With satellite internet service in Harvey, IA, the user must have a satellite dish installed on his home and it needs to face the equator. A satellite sends frequencies to this satellite dish, and the satellite dish then sends these frequencies to the user’s modem. The modem uses these frequencies to provide internet access for the user.

There are certainly more popular types of high-speed internet service in Harvey, IA, especially since many customers won’t want to install satellite dishes at their homes. However, satellite internet service is beneficial for customers who live in rural areas. In places like these, cable internet may not be an option, and DSL internet service is too slow because of how far the user is from the provider’s office. Satellite internet service is an excellent option for customers who want high-speed internet but aren’t close enough to the city to take advantage of more popular options.
