Can anybody tell me how will the number of cable modem users in an area affect transmission rate?

Thanks

sure, the area has a lmited amount of bandwidth, for example 100 mbps
now if you are the only one on, then you get to use the whole 100mbps, but if 10 people are logged on and using it, then you get 10 mbps, if 100 are using it, then you are down to 1 mbps
It is sort of like ICS and a dialup modem, if only one is using it, then they get it all, but as soon as more machines start using the "pipe" then since the pipe is a finite size, they have to share it
with cable you are sharing a limited amount of bandwidth with those in your area (due to routers and switches) with dsl it is a dedicated line, all for you
