Comcast Business rolls out largest gig-speed network

Comcast Business has announced the launch of DOCSIS 3.1-based Internet service to business customers in the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic United States including Greater Boston; Greater Philadelphia; New Jersey; and northern Delaware; as well as in Baltimore, MD; Charlottesville, VA; and Washington, D.C, the company said.

Additional areas throughout the company´s national network footprint will deploy on a rolling basis through the Fall. This expands on the company´s existing DOCSIS 3.1-based Internet serviceability in Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Detroit, Chattanooga, Huntsville and Miami.

With the continued roll out of its gig-speed network, Comcast´s “Business Internet 1 Gig” and “Business Internet 500” speed tiers are now available to business customers in Comcast´s Northeast and Mid-Atlantic service areas using the company´s existing network, without the need for any costly or disruptive construction of new network facilities.

Businesses of all sizes are moving to cloud-based operations models and placing a premium on high-capacity, high-performance Internet connectivity. DOCSIS 3.1 business Internet service unleashes a new option for accessing gigabit speeds in any business environment — whether a distributed enterprise with locations across the country or a small business with only a handful of locations. The speed and cost efficiencies afforded by Comcast Business´s gig-speed network make it ideally suited for businesses across several industries such as retail, healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, education and government.

Comcast Cable is one of the nation´s largest video, high-speed Internet and phone providers to residential customers under the XFINITY brand and also provides these services to businesses. Comcast has invested in technology to build an advanced network that delivers among the fastest broadband speeds, and brings customers personalized video, communications and home management offerings.
