Comcast to deliver gigabit speeds in new states

Wednesday 2 November 2016 | 06:23 CET | News
Comcast is launching an advanced consumer trial of a new internet service that will deliver speeds up to 1 Gbps to residential customers throughout the entire city of Detroit. Comcast will also start offering a residential gigabit internet service to local customers in Utah and Oregon/SW Washington in early 2017. The service in Detroit is the first citywide 1 Gig service offered in Detroit and one of the first in the nation, the operator said. Comcast will use Docsis 3.1 technology to deliver these speeds over its existing network infrastructure.
