WOW! (NYSE:WOW) is making a big push to expand its DOCSIS 3.1-based gigabit Internet services in several markets. The service is available to both residential and business customers. The new launches and expansions include:

  • Panama City and Pinellas, FL
  • Chicago and Naperville, IL
  • Cleveland and Columbus, OH
  • Charleston, SC
  • Augusta and West Point, GA
  • Valley, AL
  • Detroit

The new deployments are part of a plan WOW! announced last November to expand its gigabit services to 95% of its footprint early this year. Other recent launches included markets in Michigan and Tennessee.

"We're seeing an increasing number of families and individuals that have heavy data demands due to multiple Internet-enabled devices in the home," said Pat Eltzroth, local Pinellas operations director for WOW!. "Our 1 Gig Internet service will allow those users to game, stream, chat, shop or browse without having to worry about slow loading times or buffering. And WOW! 1 Gig is free of data caps."
