High-speed packet-switched communications to the home can be provided using an existing community antenna television (CATV) system. The author focuses on an efficient access scheme for a network that operates on a CATV system. The scheme takes advantage of packet address locality to minimize the expected network access overhead. Its efficiency is compared with that of other access schemes that might be used on a CATV-based network
