Comcast Rolls Out 2 Gig Internet in Four New Markets

  • Comcast Cable
ST. PAUL, MN — Comcast has begun rolling out its 2 gig Internet service, Gigabit Pro, in Minn., Wash., Ore., and Colo. Gigabit Pro is a symmetrical, 2 Gbps service that will be delivered via a fiber-to-the-home solution. In these markets Gigabit Pro will be available to homes within close proximity of Comcast’s fiber network and will require installation of professional-grade equipment. Comcast will also launch Extreme 250, a new 250 Mbps Internet speed tier, in these markets.

For the past decade, Comcast has invested billions of dollars to extend that fiber deeper into neighborhoods and closer to homes. To date, Comcast has built out more than 145,000 route miles of fiber across its nationwide service area to serve residential communities with a fiber to the home solution.

In addition, Comcast is currently testing DOCSIS 3.1, a scalable, national, next generation multi-gigabit technology solution with plans to begin launching in early 2016. When fully deployed, it will mean almost every customer in Comcast’s national footprint will be able to receive gigabit speeds over the existing network (a combination of both fiber and coax).

Comcast will roll out its Gigabit Pro service to more than 600,000 homes across the Twin Cities later this year. Gigabit Pro will be offered to customers throughout Comcast’s footprint in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Extreme 250 will be available to Twin Cities area customers later this year.
