Comcast is launching a new Internet service that will deliver speeds up to 1 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) to residential customers throughout the state of Utah, the company said.
Comcast will use DOCSIS 3.1 technology to deliver these speeds over the company´s existing network infrastructure.
The company´s new 1-gigabit Internet service will use existing communications lines that are already in most people´s homes. As a result, it has the potential to reach more homes even faster and allows for broad deployment across communities. To enjoy the service, all customers need to do is install a new DOCSIS 3.1 compatible cable modem that is capable of delivering gigabit speeds.
The everyday price for 1 Gigabit service in Utah is USD 159.95, without a contract. Two promotional prices will also be tested in different areas with a one-year service agreement. For example, we will test a USD 70.00 per month offer in certain areas in Salt Lake City, Provo, and North Ogden, and test a USD 109.99 per month offer across the rest of the state. Additional prices and promotions may be tested in the future.
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.
