“Broadband Internet” simply refers to any Internet connection that is faster than dial-up. Cable Internet and DSL count as broadband Internet connections, for instance. Fiber optics Internet is a type of broadband service that is provided by fiber optic cables instead of through a coaxial cable or a phone line.

The main difference between the two types is that fiber optics have a larger cord which allow a lot more signals which in turn makes for a faster internet connection.
