Canadian triple-play cableco Eastlink has launched new ‘super-fast’ cable broadband internet service packages under the names ‘Internet 200’ (200Mbps download) and ‘Internet 80’ (80Mbps download) in the Atlantic Canada region, the company announced Friday. Its premium 200Mbps service is an upgrade from its previous 100Mbps top-speed introduced in 2010, and is initially only available in and around Halifax, Nova Scotia. The company, which is claiming the service is the fastest in Atlantic Canada, added that it will be rolling out the new speeds to markets in Nova Scotia and its other coverage zones during the year ahead.
