Fiber and cable internet are similar internet service types, but fiber offers a few advantages over cable.

Cable does have the advantage over fiber in terms of availability, covering 89% of U.S. households compared to fiber’s 38%.

According to the FCC, 93% of households have access to three or more providers. In many areas, a cable, DSL, satellite and possibly fiber-optic provider may be available. You are unlikely, however, to find multiple providers of the same internet type, such as two cable providers, in the same location because operating expenses in an area already served by another provider can be too high to be profitable.
