The two “legacy” solutions for broadband Internet access have been DSL and Cable Modem. Two rising competing solutions are fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), and broadband wireless with WiMax and/or LTE. FTTH guarantees gigabits/sec access speeds, paving the way for services like HDTV. FTTH service is being offered in certain areas by such providers as Verizon and AT&T.
