Comcast Announces 2Gbps Fiber Internet

Category: Internet
Posted: 04:02PM

Comcast has announced its latest entry into the growing fiber to the home Internet market with Gigabit Pro, a 2Gbps service. The service will debut in Atlanta, GA to more than 1.5 million customers, with plans to expand to 18 million homes by the end of the year. The 2Gbps speed is double the speed of Google Fiber, which has plans to add Atlanta to its growing number of supported markets. Installation of new equipment will be required, though pricing for the equipment and service were unavailable at this time. Executive VP for consumer services Mercien Jenckes described the strategy stating, "Over the coming months and years you can expect us to be aggressive, but deliberate, about rolling out gigabit and multi-gig services across the country."

Problem is they will put it out there and not be able to deliver that kind of speed with any reliability.  I still have the memory of the poor service I had with them. Off at 6pm and back on at 7am. Just like a light switch!

You notice they make no mention of the cost because they know it will be expensive.
