*Although cable internet is capable of a higher connection speed, the actual speed difference between DSL and cable may be small.  Most ISPs have imposed bandwidth / speed caps for residential users, which limit the maximum connection speed depending on service plans.  For cable internet users, the number of people sharing the same cable line at the same time also affects the connection speed.
