Comcast announced today that it is launching a new internet service that will deliver speeds up to 1 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) to residential and business customers in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Las Cruces, Farmington and Silver City, New Mexico. These speeds will be among the fastest and most widely available in the region and include access to the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network of more than 19 million hotspots.
“We have increased internet speeds 17 times in the past 17 years and we will continue to bring New Mexico customers the absolute fastest speeds possible by proactively investing in our advanced, high performance network,” said Chris Dunkeson, Area Vice President, New Mexico.
Comcast Business is also offering DOCSIS 3.1-based internet service to business customers in Albuquerque and the cities listed above. With the continued roll out of its gig-speed network, Comcast’s “Business Internet 1 Gig” and “Business Internet 500” speed tiers are now available to business customers in the area using the company’s existing network, without the need for any costly or disruptive construction of new network facilities.
The company’s new 1 Gigabit internet service will use DOCSIS 3.1 technology to deliver the speeds over the existing communications lines that most people already have in their homes. To enjoy the service, all customers need to do is install a new DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem. New and current customers in New Mexico can visit Xfinity.com/gig to learn about the new service and request additional information.
