Cable Connects Texans
High-Speed Internet Access
Cable’s early investment and deployment of cable modem service helped create the robust competition that exists in today’s residential broadband marketplace. Cable modem technology was developed and began to be deployed in 1996. The phone companies and other competitors began to deploy DSL in competition with cable’s modem service – and the race was on to serve the residential broadband customer. Today, Texas is among the top five states in the country for the number of high-speed Internet lines - with more than 9 million and counting. Link to Broadband for America's Texas Chapter.
