Comcast is launching a new internet service that will deliver speeds up to 1 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) to residential customers in the New York communities of Beekman, Brewster, Carmel, Kent, Patterson, Town of Pawling, Village of Pawling, Putnam Valley, Somers and Southeast. These speeds will be among the fastest and most widely available and include access to the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network of more than 18 million hotspots.
“We know consumers need an Internet provider that can deliver speed, and we have been on a pace of doubling our network capacity every 18 to 24 months, ensuring that we stay well ahead of demand,” said Michael Parker, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Western New England Region, which includes the Carmel, New York area.
Combined with Comcast’s recently launched Xfinity xFi platform, a new and personalized home Wi-Fi experience, the company is giving its customers in the Carmel, New York area the fastest speeds and the most Wi-Fi coverage and control in their homes.
The completion of the New York communities marks the first deployment of 1 Gigabit service within Comcast’s Western New England Region, which serves 300 communities across Connecticut, Vermont, western Massachusetts, western New Hampshire and New York. Additional areas will deploy on a rolling basis. In all areas, the everyday price for 1 Gigabit service is $104.95 a month, without a term contract, and a promotional price of $79.99 a month for 12 months is being offered.
The company’s new 1 Gigabit internet service will use DOCSIS 3.1 technology to deliver the speeds over the existing communications lines that are already in most people’s homes. To enjoy the service, all customers need to do is install a new DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem.
New and current residential customers can visit Xfinity.com/gig to learn about the new service and request additional information.
