Not necessarily, the bit rate may be higher. Good modern alarms use a cryptographically secured bitstream to provide the anti-tamper part of the line protection.

The alarm companies need to deliver extremely small amounts of data which can range from make or break circuits to 60 300 or 2400bps data for things like building control systems, that's a considerably different problem than try to ram 1-7mb/s through a 25,000 foot long piece of wire.
