Speed Comparison Graph

If you have ever experienced the speed of a dial-up connection to the Internet, you probably think that WWW stands for "World Wide Wait". With CableOp Service high-speed Internet you will quickly learn why it is actually called the World Wide Web as you discover that the world of information is immediately at your fingertips.

Cable Internet access vastly outperforms most other common means of connecting to the Internet and will enable you to experience the best of what the web has to offer at the speeds it is designed to utilize.

Modem speeds are measured in kilobits per second (Kbps). To convert to kilobytes per second (KB/sec.), divide by eight - note the spelling "bits" vs "bytes". In the table below, each modem speed is shown along with the theoretical time required to download a 1 MB file, assuming the full transfer speed was achieved. Please keep in mind that these speeds are the theoretical possible speeds. Regardless of your Internet Service Provider, overhead and other natural inefficiencies of the Internet (such as web site server lag and general Internet congestion) often reduce actual performance by 5 percent to 20 percent for all users.
