    i’m not sure this is the right place to ask. i’m confused on how they differ besides the wiring? how does 1 mps of cable internet compare to 1mps of fiber internet? like what is that ratio like? i have been conflicted between which kind of internet i should get to meet my needs because i’m not sure i am understanding here. i currently have 600mps cable internet but have been offered 50mps fiber for $20 less at another company. i wfh, game, and stream on multiple devices. and decided on keeping the 600mps but i guess i’m just second guessing it

      1 megabit per second is 1 megabit per second or same speed.

      HOWEVER, I can make one look better or worse by selecting another DNS.

      And 50 megabit per second is quite the step down from 600.

      Another factor is that some ISPs oversubscribe their big internet connection. I have yet to find reviews that measure that.
