Internet from My Utilities

Internet is a utility you definitely want to get right the first time. There are basically four options for your internet services.

  • Fiber-optic

  • Cable Internet

  • High speed DSL

  • Satellite Internet

For the most part, what you pay for is the download speed. You will want to choose your provider after factoring in how much time you plan on spending on the internet and how many people will be using it at once. The more devices you use at one time, the more bandwidth required. My Utilities will help you figure out what you need to consider and help you decide just how fast you need your download speed to be. Feel free to ask us questions to make sure you understand what you need and what you are getting.

  • Fiber-optic Cable is an advancement from the conventional copper wire offering a quicker speed of transmission than the conventional copper wire. These fiber-optic cables use modulated light instead of electricity to simultaneously carry internet, voice, and video. Fiber-optic cables do not suffer from electrical interference and also have a much higher bandwidth than alternatives.

  • Cable Internet is a type of broadband connection that transmits data over a cable television network. Cable Internet is typically faster than DSL but not quite as fast as fiber-optic.

  • DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. DSL carries data directly from the phone company to residential homes using high frequency digital signals over existing copper voice phone lines.

  • Satellite Internet service transmits and receives data with a small satellite dish on Earth and communicates with an orbiting geostationary satellite 22,300 miles above Earth's equator.

  • *Bundle. Depending on which services you need, some providers will bundle utilities like internet, cable, and phones and give you better deals when they are purchased.The My Utilities team members are experts on questions you might have and will help you find the perfect package for your home.
