Comcast will begin offering 2 gig internet service
The announcement that Google Fiber will be moving into the Atlanta market is already creating change for local consumers.
Today Comcast, the area’s leading high speed internet provider, has announced plans to roll out 2 gig internet service to 1.5 million customers, starting next month.
That’s faster than the gigabit internet service Google Fiber plans to offer in several Atlanta communities, including Decatur and Avondale Estates.
Comcast’s announcement does not include pricing or any maps about where the service will be offered.
“Gigabit Pro will be available to any home within close proximity of Comcast’s fiber network and will require an installation of professional-grade equipment,” the company said via press release. “The company has fiber at the core of its network and, for the past decade, it has been extending it deeper into neighborhoods and closer to homes. To date, Comcast has built out more than 145,000 route miles of fiber across its service area.”
