Comcast is moving to shake up the Chattanooga, Tenn., broadband market by challenging both local telco incumbent AT&T and municipal utility EPB with its own 2 Gbps fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband offering starting in June.

Google Fiber may finally get the green light it needs to bring its 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) service to Portland, Ore., as state lawmakers signed a law that would exempt gigabit Internet service from a decades-old property tax initially intended for microwave towers.
Verizon is seeing more of its FiOS customers adopt its symmetrical 75 Mbps Quantum speed tier, a factor that's helped the telco offset an overall decline in first-quarter 2015 wireline revenue.
Comcast is hoping to bring a new challenge to the California broadband market dominated mainly by AT&T, announcing that it plans to deliver its 2 Gbps Internet service in 12 of the state's metro markets.
