Comporium boosts broadband speeds

For Comporium has begun increasing Internet connection speeds for nearly 75,000 cable modem customers, the company said.

The latest round of customers should see their download speeds increase up to 5Mbps — 25Mbps.

As a part of Comporium continuing its promise to offer customers faster Internet connections, all fiber and cable modem customers in Lancaster and York Counties have had their speeds increased over the summer and early fall.

In June, Comporium increased speeds for 40,000 of its customers in neighborhoods served by fiber or by advanced cable modem nodes. After several months of network and equipment upgrades, the company could keep its promise to increase speeds for the remaining cable modem customers by this fall. Even with continued investment in the broadband system, Comporium plans to keep the rack rate for their broadband packages the same in 2018.
