What is the maximum bandwidth of a coaxial cable?

Coaxial cables don't have a maximum speed. It's just a physical carrier. It depends on the technology behind the cable that gives it its speed. What Google told you was that the DS3/T-3 communication has a maximum speed of 44.736Mbps, but it uses a coaxial cable as the carrier.

Besides, what is the bandwidth of a coaxial cable?

The transmission speed of coaxial cable is 10Mbps (megabits per second), and they offer 80 times more transmission capacity than twisted pair cables.

Additionally, does coaxial cable affect Internet speed? A loose coaxial connection can cause slowdowns in your speed. Sometimes the culprit of slow speed is issues with the coaxial cable and connection. Check to see if the coaxial cable is tightly fitted onto your modem/router and has a secure connection to the wall outlet.

Accordingly, how much bandwidth does cable TV use?

Cable download speeds range anywhere from 1 Mbps to 1,000 Mbps (1 Gbps). The national average is around 100 Mbps.

Can you get Gigabit over Coax?

The short answer is no. Without equipment to support either high-speed fiber-optic or the DOCSIS 3.1 standard for gigabit over coax, you're out of luck with your current networking gear.
