QUINCY, MA — Atlantic Broadband, the nation’s ninth largest cable operator, announced a major expansion of its gigabit internet deployment for homes and businesses. Gigabit speed internet has launched this week in the company’s Eastern Pennsylvania service area, with additional launches planned throughout the year in Western Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. The planned expansion is expected to be completed by the end of summer, at which time Gigabit speed internet will be available to over 90 percent of Atlantic Broadband’s footprint, extending across 11 states from Maine to Florida.

Atlantic Broadband launched gigabit speed internet in Connecticut in 2016 and deployed the service a year later in its Miami footprint. Additional launches occurred in 2018 in its New Hampshire/Maine, Southern Maryland, and Aiken, South Carolina service areas. “With the wide availability of gigabit service, cable is putting in place the broadband infrastructure to power the emerging technologies and applications, said Mark Walker, director of technology policy at CableLabs, the nonprofit research and development lab for the global cable industry. “This will transform and enhance our lives through immersive entertainment, next-generation healthcare and a re-imagination of education and work.”

The gigabit speed expansion is occurring at a time when homes and workplaces increasingly require internet with the capacity and performance to power the growing number of devices and applications customers rely on every day. Gigabit’s high performance speeds, made possible through robust DOCSIS 3.1 technology, power the most data-intensive applications so that home and business users can surf, stream, download and work online simultaneously.
