Comcast has announced that it will offer residential multi-Gigabit broadband connectivity in Florida to its more than 1.3 million customers in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm and Jacksonville areas. ‘Gigabit Pro’ is a symmetrical, 2Gbps service that will be delivered via a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) solution. It will be offered broadly across Comcast’s Florida service area beginning next month and represents the fastest residential broadband speed currently available in the US.
Florida becomes one of the first markets in the country to offer Gigabit Pro, following launches in Atlanta and California earlier this month. In addition, Comcast plans to offer a multi-Gigabit fibre service through its ‘XFINITY Communities’ programme that serves residents of multi-dwelling units (MDUs) such as apartment complexes.
