The data and information that comes over the Internet is delivered by a coaxial cable. This is the same cable that is used to give you a TV signal if you have cable television. There are normally several parts of a modem as they each have a different function and they are as follows:

  • Tuner
  • Demodulator
  • Modulator


This is the portion that receives the Internet signal from the cable and then moves the signal all the way to the demodulator in Long Island. This is an important because without the tuner; it would not be possible to be connected to the web.


The demodulator is what takes the signal and that data that is on it and converts it into a digital form. It can eventually be read by the computer. The most common demodulators have four distinct functions. Call for more details about getting a modem in your home.
