The Benefits of Cable Internet Service over DSL.
What should Hamilton residents choose?
It can be a bit overwhelming trying to sort through all the internet providers have to offer, and make your decision if you should go with a cable, wireless or DSL (Dedicated Subscriber Line) connection.
Don’t worry, because we’ve done the hard work for you! Take a look at our helpful guide below and find out what internet service provider and what type of connection are best for your home in Hamilton.
Speed vs Cost
Generally, cable broadband tends to be the faster option, while DSL is less expensive.
If you’re an online gamer, spend a lot of time video streaming, or download a lot of content, you’re going to be disappointed with DSL speeds.
Cable broadband uses a coaxial cable (the same cord that’s probably plugged into your tv right now) and the DOCSIS technology of cable companies. DOCSIS is cheap to upgrade and has been frequently and regularly updated for the past 15 years, so speeds are likely to only continue to go up in the future.
Bit Caps vs “Unlimited” Data for Cable Internet & DSL
An important question that comes up when choosing internet is just how much you’re going to be using your internet. One drawback of cable broadband internet is that internet service providers tend to put data caps on your usage.
When you reach your data cap, the service provider usually charges you a set fee and then tacks on another 50 to 250 GB of data, depending on your contract. Other cable broadband providers just throttle your data to nearly unusable speeds until the month resets, and they bring you back to the speed you paid for.
At WaveDirect we are completely unlimited for our cable internet and will NOT throttle your connection unless you severely abuse the internet.
DSL connections they tend to be very difficult to reach any reasonable data cap, so you essentially get “unlimited” bandwidth, but if you try to use that bandwidth to download 100GB of music, books, or movies then you’re probably going to be waiting all month for it to finish anyway, thus never reaching your BitCap in megabyte (MB), but not doing to much with the internet, either. It's all about fast speeds.
Can you get TV with your Internet?
A regulated IPTV (TV) service is coming soon to WaveDirect's internet customers, providing the popular channels you love at a competitive price.
What Speeds Can I Get?

If you are using multiple devices at the same time in your home, or if you use Wifi as the primary way to access the internet in your home, your speeds will vary.
