Comcast to Roll Out 2 Gbps Service in Atlanta

  • Comcast
PHILADELPHIA, PA — Comcast announced the roll-out of its new Gigabit Pro residential Internet service with symmetrical, 2 Gbps speeds over fiber. The service will first be offered in Atlanta and will roll out in additional cities soon with the goal to have it available across the country and available to about 18 million homes by the end of the year.

"Gigabit Pro is a professional-grade residential fiber-to-the-home solution that leverages our fiber network to deliver 2 Gbps upload and download speeds," said Marcien Jenckes, executive vice president, Consumer Services, Comcast Cable. "We’ve spent a decade building a national fiber backbone across 145,000 route miles of fiber. This new service will be available to customers that are within close proximity to our fiber network.

DOCSIS 3.1 to Deliver Gigabit Speeds to Entire Comcast Footprint
"Gigabit Pro isn’t the only way we plan to bring gigabit speeds to customers’ homes. We are currently testing DOCSIS 3.1, a scalable, national, next generation 1 Gbps technology solution. We hope to begin rolling out DOCSIS 3.1 in early 2016, and when fully deployed, it will mean almost every customer in our footprint will be able to receive gigabit speeds over our existing network (a combination of both fiber and coax).

"Our commitment to growing our Internet options comes down to making sure you have an amazing online experience. A big part of that experience is speed, and with Gigabit Pro, we’ve now increased speeds 14 times in the past 13 years. 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."
