At an on the subscriber's residence, the company's service drop cable is connected to cables distributing the signal to different rooms in the building.

This limited the upstream speed to 31. The "" channels occupy a band of from approximately 50 MHz to 1 GHz, while the "" channels occupy frequencies of 5 to 42 MHz. A cable from the jack in the wall is attached to the input of the box, and an output cable from the box is attached to the television, usually the RF-IN or composite input on older TVs. Many large cable systems have upgraded or are upgrading their equipment to allow for bi-directional signals, thus allowing for greater upload speed and always-on convenience, though these upgrades are expensive.

Cable television

Multiple cables to different rooms are split off the incoming cable with a small device called a. At the optical node, the optical signal is translated back into an electrical signal and Fiber networks for telephone and CATV by distribution lines on utility poles, from which cables branch out to a series of signal amplifiers and line extenders.

Older sets are "cable ready" and can receive the old analog cable without a set-top box. To expand beyond 12 channels, non-standard "midband" channels had to be used, located between the FM band and Channel 7, or "superband" beyond Channel 13 up to about 300 MHz; these channels initially were only accessible using separate tuner boxes that sent the chosen channel into the TV set on Channel 2, 3 or 4.
