Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) uses the existing copper wire of your phone line to deliver high speed internet access from the phone company's office to your home. One problem with DSL is that further you are away from the providers central location the slower your signal/connection tends to get.

Fiber optic is the latest technology in broadband. Unlike DSL and Cable, fiber optic connection carry data (i.e. internet, voice & video) via optical cables. Fiber optic does not require electrical interference and has a much higher bandwidth.
