It will go through fiber in the ISP's facilities most likely, but it is delivered to you through the coax cable. That means the cable will be a bottleneck and you can't go any faster than that. Sure, coax could potentially support up to 100MB/s, but fiber optics can handle far more than that. Granted, it's not practical or necessary for most people especially since you'll still be limited by the other side's bandwidth.
