Broadband Technology

There are many different types of broadband technologies, such as cable, DSL, powerline, satellite, and wireless. Each of these implementations can provide similar services to consumers and businesses.

Generally speaking broadband service delivery can be separated into two main categories: wired and wireless. Wired broadband delivers services over some type of wire connected to your home or office. Wireless broadband uses the electromagnetic spectrum and does not require a wire running to your home or office.
