The modem is cable tech not fiber. In my area the fastest connection available is through cable, fiber is not available. The cable companies have always had a leg up on the competition at least where I live because the infrastructure for the most part was already there. I wouldn't doubt that's the case in many areas of the US except for major urban areas.
