Comcast Details Gigabit Internet Offerings

Category: Internet
Posted: 04:06PM

Comcast announced a 2Gbps fiber to the home Internet offering in multiple major markets in April of last year. The company delivered on its promise to have the service available to 18 million homes by the end of the year. Comcast won't be rolling out the fiber service to its entire network, but hopes that a 1Gbps cable offering will help fill the void. The new cable service will be possible due to the DOCSIS 3.1 standard that will require new modems, but will still use traditional coaxial cable rather than fiber. There is no information regarding pricing or potential data caps available at this time, but it has been noted that DOCSIS 3.1 modems are under testing in Pennsylvania and Northern California.
