Comcast expands 1 Gbps broadband service to Chicago area

Wednesday 17 August 2016 | 16:44 CET | News
Comcast has launched a third trial of its Docsis 3.1, 1 Gbps broadband in the Chicago area. The faster service was first started earlier this year in Atlanta and Nashville and is expected to launch also in Detroit and Miami later in 2016. The residential 1 Gbps service costs USD 139.95 per month plus taxes. Comcast said it will test promotional pricing during the trial period. As part of the trial, initial users will be encouraged to provide feedback about the service to Comcast, which will be used to help improve the service before expansion to other areas.
