@pslam,
What do you mean by "Fibe?". Is it a company or a shorthand for fiber optics?

@pslam,
I'll assume Fibe means Fiber. Fiber and Cable are two ways to get high bandwidth to a house or business. Fiber has much more capacity than cable. Bandwidth can be used to carry all sorts of information including Internet and TV, so "fiber Internet" is just high speed Internet over fiber. The same for TV. FTTN is "fiber to the node" and is a hybrid system of fiber to some point, likely in your neighborhood then cable the rest of the way to your house. That's better than all cable, not as good as all fiber. DSL is "digital subscriber line" and is a technology allowing bandwidth over copper phone lines. It is usually not as fast as cable, but you and all your neighbors share cable while DSL is unique to your home, so if all your neighbors are heavy downloaders, you might be better off with DSL since no one but you uses your bandwidth.
