cable modem

cable modem
   A modem that sends and receives signals through a coaxial cable connected to a cable-television system, rather than through conventional telephone lines.
   Cable modems, with speeds of up to 500Kbps, are faster than current conventional modems, but are subject to performance changes as system load increases. Theoretical data rates are much higher than those achieved with conventional modems; downstream rates of up to 36Mbps are possible, with 3Mbps to 10Mbps likely, and upstream rates up to 10Mbps.
