Comcast is launching a symmetrical, 2 Gbps residential broadband service starting next month in the Atlanta metro area.
The Comcast Gigabit Pro service will be delivered via fiber-to-the-home. Comcast says the service will be available to any home within close proximity of its fiber network and will require an installation of professional-grade CPE.
Comcast also said it plans to expand the 2 Gbps service to other markets across the country. The goal is to have the service available to 18 million homes by the end of the year.
“Our approach is to offer the most comprehensive rollout of multi-gigabit service to the most homes as quickly as possible, not just to certain neighborhoods,” said Doug Guthrie, SVP of Comcast Cable’s South Region.
To date, Comcast has built out more than 145,000 route miles of fiber across its service area.
