Comcast Announces Gigabit Internet Services for Home and Businesses in CharlestonMarch 28, 2018
Comcast announced today that it is launching a new internet service that will deliver speeds up to 1 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) to residential and business customers in Charleston, SC. Starting in late April 2018, Comcast will begin delivering these super-fast speeds using DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem technology, which leverages the existing wiring that most people already have in their homes. The gigabit service will be among the fastest and most widely available in the area, and will include access to the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network of more than 18 million hotspots.
“With today’s announcement by Comcast, Charleston continues to establish itself as a premier destination for residents and businesses seeking the most advanced technology,” said Ernest Andrade, Executive Director at the Charleston Digital Corridor. “We appreciate Comcast’s long-standing partnership with the Charleston region, and look forward to enjoying some of the nation’s fastest Internet speeds.”
