Comcast lights multi-gig symmetrical speeds in Atlanta

Nov. 14, 2023
The cable MSO’s DOCSIS 4.0 deployment will give users a choice of multiple speeds, including 300 Mbps, 500 Mbps, 1Gbps and 2Gbps.

Comcast is launching symmetrical multi-gigabit broadband speeds leveraging DOCSIS 4.0 technology in Atlanta.

The cable provider has introduced its 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.

Besides offering multi-gig speeds, Comcast offers residential customers various options. For income-qualified households, it also provides a $9.95 or free service option with the Affordable Connectivity Program through its Internet Essentials program.

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 in the previous 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.

“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, SVP of technical operations and engineering at Comcast Central Division.
