Unlike DSL, Cable modems are not limited by distance. Cable modem technology is continuously being updated. Cable companies, including W.O.W., have upgraded to DOCSIS 3, which allows theoretical 160Mbps/120Mbps speeds through the use of channel bonding, compare that to the average offering of 1.5-6Mbps for DSL in the U.S.

In addition to blazing fast speeds, cable has low pings which makes it perfect for gaming, always on connection, and can help you save money by bundling it with other services from your cable company such as TV and home phone.
