DSL internet uses copper cables to transfer data. In rural America, it is one of the top wired choices despite slower speeds. Its hybrid high-speed versions however deliver speeds up to 100 Mbps where available.
Cable internet uses coaxial cable lines to transfer data. And nowadays major cable internet providers use a hybrid arrangement of Fiber and Coaxial to enhance speeds up to 1.2 Gig for downloads.
Fiber connections send data through light pulses via cables made up of optical fibers. These cables can carry much more data and deliver speeds a hundred times faster than what you get via DSL, Cable or Satellite. Fiber cables are more resilient and not as prone to external interference so signal strength remains strong over much longer distances.
With satellite internet, the signal travels back and forth in a loop―from the provider’s hub to the satellite in space, and then to the user end. This internet type provides connectivity even in remote areas. A good high-speed option, but it has the highest latency.
Fixed Wireless uses landline fiber optic networks at the backend, but the signal travels via the air over a terrestrial microwave platform to the user end. The access point near the user’s location then broadcasts it in the direction of their antenna.
5G is the 5th-gen technology standard for broadband cellular networks. It operates on a wider range of radio spectrum allotments. 5G delivered via the high-band (mmWave) is faster, but has a shorter range compared to 5G delivered over the Sub-6 low-band. Most 5G internet service providers in the U.S. use a mix of both.
