Comcast extends DOCSIS 3.0 march into Western Mass.

Comcast has reached the latest stop on its DOCSIS 3.0 tour with the addition of a number of Western, Massachusetts towns to its deployment roster.

This latest deployment brings DOCSIS 3.0 service to 11 new communities: Bernardston, Erving, Gill, Greenfield, Hardwick, Monson, Montague, Northfield, Palmer, Ware and Warren. With the 11 new Western, Mass. communities now online, Comcast now offers its 'wideband' service to both residential and business customers to 238 communities in the state.

Residential customers have their choice of two primary service tiers: the Extreme 50 Mbps tier with 50 Mbps download speeds and the Ultra tier with 22 Mbps download speeds for $99.95 per month and $62.95 when bundled with its video or voice service sets. Similarly, business customers have the choice of either the Deluxe (50 Mbps/10 Mbps) or the Premium tier (22 Mbps/5 Mbps) for $189.95 and $99.95, respectively.

Out of the three largest cable MSOs, Comcast has laid out an aggressive goal of reaching 80 percent of its U.S. markets with DOCSIS 3.0-based services. According to an article in CED, the MSO reached about 65 percent of its network footprint with DOCSIS 3.0 services, serving about 33 million homes and businesses.
