Comcast has completed its deployment of a new Internet service that will deliver speeds up to 1 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) to residential and business customers in the 156 communities the company serves in Vermont. These speeds are among the fastest and most widely available and include access to the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network of more than 19 million hotspots.
Comcast’s new 1 Gigabit Internet service uses DOCSIS 3.1 technology that makes it possible to deliver ultra-fast speeds over the existing communications lines that are already in most homes and neighborhoods. To enjoy the service, all customers need to do is install a new DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem.
With a 1 Gigabit connection, customers can:
- Download a 5 Gigabyte HD movie in 40 seconds;
- Download a 600 Megabyte TV episode in four seconds;
- Download a 150 Megabyte music album in two seconds; and
- Download 15 Gigabyte video game in two minutes
Comcast Business is also offering DOCSIS 3.1-based Internet service to business customers in Vermont. Comcast’s “Business Internet 1 Gig” and “Business Internet 500” speed tiers are now available to business customers in the area using the company’s existing network, without the need for any costly or disruptive construction of new network facilities.
The everyday price for Residential Gigabit service is $104.95 a month, without a term contract, and a promotional price of $89.99 a month for 12 months is being offered. New and existing customers can visit Xfinity.com/gig to learn about the new service and request additional information.
Pricing for Comcast Business services varies based on a variety of factors including a business’s physical address, number of locations to be served, and the services to which the business currently subscribes. Customers can contact their local Comcast salesperson for more information. Businesses already served by Comcast can upgrade to Business Internet 1 Gig or Business Internet 500 by visiting business.comcast.com/gig.
