The ads tout Cable as a viable business Internet service. A closer look, however, may reveal otherwise. With Cable, bandwidth is shared, and that sharing can cause speeds to fluctuate and your connection to slow. Most Cable providers lack uptime guarantees and built-in network security, potentially putting customers at risk of lost business and data breach.
Although Cable services are appropriate for some situations, the advent of widely available Asymmetrical Business Ethernet provides a compelling and affordable alternative. Check out our comparative infographic to see how these two broadband services stack up.
