Comcast rolls out 2-gigabits-per-second home broadband in Atlanta

The cyberspace speed race is heating up. Next month, Comcast will begin offering its Gigabit Pro service to more than 1.5 million homes in Atlanta. The fiberoptic service, which Comcast says is the fastest residential Internet speed in the country at 2 gigabits per second, will be available to about 18 million homes in other cities across the USA by year’s end, said Comcast Cable executive vice president Marcien Jenckes in a blog post.GTY 469232791 A FIN HTH USA FL

Comcast didn’t provide a price for the new service. Comcast shares got a small boost after the announcement Thursday and were up 1.16% to $57.72 early afternoon. Currently, Google Fiber, the tech giant’s 1 Gbps home broadband service is available in Kansas City, Austin and Provo, Utah, with five more cities in the works and others being considered. Comcast, which has been delivering multi-gig (up to 10 Gbps) Ethernet service to businesses since 2010, did not announce pricing.

“The next great Internet innovation is only an idea away, and we want to help customers push the boundaries of what the Internet can do and do our part to inspire developers to think about what’s possible in a multi-gigabit future,” Jenckes said.
