Atlantic Broadband’s GigaEdge services were unveiled today at the Lyman Allyn Art Museum in New London. The launch event featured local government and business leaders and gave local residents the opportunity to demo GigaEdge.

Following a similar trend heralded by other regional cable MSOs such as Grande and even large providers like Comcast, the 1 Gbps debut is part of a broader effort to increase all of Atlantic's speeds within its consumer and business segment.

In the consumer segment, Atlantic Broadband offers 100 Mbps and 25 Mbps speed tiers under the ExpressPlus and Unleashed Plus brand, while introducing a new 250 Mbps tier called Pro Edge for business customers.
