10 Jun 2016

US cable giant Comcast has announced that it has initiated an ‘advanced user trial’ of 1Gbps-capable DOCSIS 3.1 technology for residential and business users in Nashville, Tennessee. The city becomes the second Comcast market to witness the rollout of DOCSIS 3.1, following Atlanta, Georgia in March this year. Initial customers in Nashville will have the choice of a promotional contract price of USD70 per month for 36 months, with the price rising to USD139.95 per month on a non-contract basis. Going forward, Comcast intends to deploy DOCSIS 3.1 connectivity in Chicago, Detroit and Miami in the second half of 2016.
