Coaxial Cable (Coax)

Coaxial Cable is a type of copper cable and is the main type of cable used by the cable TV industry. It is also often used for computer networks.

It is more expensive than standard cable but it has benefits in that it can carry more data and suffers less from interference.  However it cannot carry as much bandwith as fibre optic cable can.
