Comcast runs faster Internet speeds

Written by Nick Farell

For special people


Comcast has
announced that it will begin rolling out faster Internet speeds over the next few weeks in selected markets to homes and businesses.

In a press release, the U.S.’s  largest cable operator and residential Internet service provider said that it will offer speeds up to 50 megabits per second. The release points out that this will mean you can download a high-definition movie in 16 minutes and a standard definition movie in 5 minutes. It will mean that most Comcast customers will double their speeds for free.

However, the service expansion is limited. It will only be available in parts of New England, including the Boston area and southern New Hampshire, as well as in portions of Philadelphia, New Jersey and the Twin Cities in Minnesota. Comcast expects to roll it out to over 10 major markets in he next few months.

For those of us on this side of the great water the costs are more interesting. The Extreme 50 service,  including up to 10 Mbps upstream service, will cost $139.95 a month. For businesses, it will cost $189.95 monthly, including extra features and support.

The 'Ultra' plan for individuals will offer speeds up to 22 Mbps for downloading and up to 5 upstream for $62.95 a month. The business "premium" tier will offer the same speeds for $99.95 a month.
