Mid-Hudson Cable

What is the difference between coaxial cable and fiber optic cable?

Coaxial cable is pure copper or copper-coated wire surrounded by insulation with an aluminum covering used to transmit television, telephone and data signals. Fiber optic cable is also used to deliver the same types of signals but carry much wider bands of frequencies. It’s made of very thin, pliable tubes of glass or plastic.
