Comcast's DOCSIS 3.0 march continues in Northern California

Comcast is giving another 27 Northern California communities a DOCSIS 3.0 holiday gift. This latest deployment in California, which will be available to area businesses and residents beginning today, furthers the MSO's goal of rolling out "wideband" DOCSIS 3.0 services to 80 percent of its nationwide footprint by the end of 2009.

Similar to other DOCSIS 3.0-capable markets, Comcast will allow users to choose between two service tiers: Extreme 50 (50 Mbps/10 Mbps) and Ultra 22 Mbps/5 Mbps) for $99.95 per month and Ultra for $62.95 per month, respectively. In addition, the MSO will increase the speed of existing Performance tier customers to 12 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up.

Comcast's latest Northern California DOCSIS 3.0 rollout follows previous service deployments in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Francisco, Santa Barbara County, Monterey-Salina and other segments of California's central Valley.
