Atlantic Broadband is launching residential and business gigabit Internet service in its New Hampshire and Maine service areas, and also is increasing its business Internet speeds in those markets. Both are based on DOCSIS 3.1.

The Internet speed upgrades follow the rollout of several service upgrades in recent weeks by Atlantic Broadband, including automatic speed upgrades for its residential Internet customers in the region in May and the recently deployed TiVo Entertainment platform with voice remote.

Both GigaEdge (residential) and Pro GigaEdge (business) services are now available in Atlantic Broadband's New Hampshire footprint, including Alexandria, Bristol, Bridgewater, Alton, Alton Bay, Barnstead, Barrington, Belmont, Center Barnstead, Center Harbor, Center Strafford, Deerfield, Epsom, Farmington, Franklin, Gilford, Gilmanton, Gilmanton Iron Works, Hebron, Laconia, Meredith, Milton, Milton Mills, New Durham, New Hampton, Northwood, Pittsfield, Rochester, Sanbornton, Strafford, Tilton-Northfield, Winnisquam, Wolfeboro, and Wolfeboro Falls, and in the Maine communities of Acton, Lebanon, Newfield, Sanford, Shapleigh, Springvale, and West Newfield.

"Atlantic Broadband continues to be committed to providing market-leading products and services for our New Hampshire and Maine customers," said Ed Merrill, general manager, New Hampshire and Maine. "Through Internet speed upgrades for all customers, a new TiVo deployment and now the deployment of gigabit in the region, we're making new things possible. Our residential customers will experience high-performance Internet for streaming, gaming and more, while our Pro GigaEdge service will enable local businesses to be more productive and thrive."

Atlantic Broadband's business Internet tiers in the region now include Pro Basic (25/10 Mbps), Pro Advantage (100/20 Mbps), Pro Power (200/30 Mbps), Pro Edge (500/40 Mbps) and Pro GigaEdge (1,000/50 Mbps).

Promotional pricing starts at $79.99 a month for new residential customers and $279.99 a month for new business customers with a three-year agreement with autopay.

Atlantic Broadband has deployed DOCSIS 3.1-based gigabit service in a number of markets in the last two years, including parts of South Carolina, Florida and Connecticut. The network upgrades to support DOCSIS 3.1 have also enabled Internet speed increases across the board in those markets.
