Cable Modem - Definition

A Cable Modem is a client device for providing data over a cable TV network. It is also a device that enables a broadband connection to the Internet by using the cable television infrastructure. Access speeds do vary depending on the area of service, with a maximum throughput of 10 megabits per second (Mbps). Under a stricter definition, a Cable Modem is not actually a modem but a network bridge. ISPs may sometimes sell or rent hardware combining a bridge with network hub or router as a Cable Modem.
