ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comcast announced that this month Atlanta residents in select neighborhoods became among the first in the nation to receive symmetrical multi-gigabit upload and download speeds powered by DOCSIS 4.0 technology. The latest version of DOCSIS technology is a giant leap forward in Internet connectivity, delivering symmetrical speeds, low latency, and ultimate capacity over the connections that already exist in customer homes.
“The enhancements we have been making to our network over the past few years have brought us to this pivotal moment of being the first to introduce DOCSIS 4.0 and multi-gig symmetrical speeds to the Atlanta market,” said Tony Speller, Senior Vice President of Technical Operations and Engineering at Comcast Central Division. “This new technology will revolutionize the Internet experience – especially how our customers experience live sports, gaming, and more.”
Comcast has launched the next-generation X-Class Internet portfolio, which will be available to new and existing Internet customers connected via DOCSIS 4.0. The X-Class speed tiers include X-300 Mbps, X-500 Mbps, X-1 Gbps and X-2 Gbps upload and download speeds and low lag for the ultimate live sports streaming experience on Peacock, smooth connections on work calls, and ultra-responsive gaming.
In addition to multi-gig speeds, Comcast offers residential customers more options than anyone else to choose the speeds that meet their household needs, for costs as low as $9.95 (or free with the Affordable Connectivity Program) through its Internet Essentials program for income-qualified households.
Comcast is already the largest provider of gigabit-plus Internet speeds in the country and was the first to deliver gigabit speeds over its entire network. Comcast has invested more than $30 billion in its network nationally in the last decade to support these innovations and $2.8 billion in Georgia over the last three years to expand, strengthen and evolve its network. Investing in communities nationwide will allow Comcast to break new ground and continue delivering Internet service in the coming years.
Residential customers in Atlanta can sign up online for the new DOCSIS 4.0-powered Internet plans. Availability to business customers, as well as additional markets in Georgia and across the Comcast footprint will be announced in 2024.
