Unveils Business Internet 1 GB and Business Internet 500 speed tiers at FortCON 2017
INDIANAPOLIS – October 28, 2017 – Comcast Business today announced it is now offering DOCSIS 3.1-based internet service to business customers in virtually all of Comcast’s Indiana footprint. “Business Internet 1 Gig” and “Business Internet 500” speed tiers are now available to thousands of business customers in Indiana using the company’s existing network, without costly and disruptive construction of new network facilities.
“We’ve offered multi-gig speeds over fiber to businesses for several years,” said Jeff Marston, vice president of Comcast Business in Indiana. “Now, by using our existing network facilities, we can provide business customers the flexibility to increase internet speeds without a potential lengthy construction process or by incurring additional costs from the build out.”
FortCON organizer and founder, James Fislar says, “Comcast Business is providing the highest quality Internet service to over 300 PC and console gamers at FortCON 2017. Gigabit Internet services will alleviate any bottlenecking amongst our attendees and provide a lot of overhead for our network engineers. We are thrilled that Comcast Business is collaborating with us as the first Gigabit Internet service customer and event in the Fort Wayne, IN area.”
For small and mid-sized businesses in buildings already served by Comcast, upgrading to Business Internet 1 Gig or Business Internet 500 is as simple as calling Comcast or visiting business.comcast.com/gig to change their service, and ordering a new modem. Gigabit service over DOCSIS 3.1 benefits industries such as retail, healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, education, and government.
With the addition of Business Internet 1 Gig and Business Internet 500, Comcast has the potential to deploy gigabit service more widely across its Indiana network and reach more customers. The new tiers of service complement other multi-gigabit options already available to Comcast Business customers, including Comcast Business Ethernet, which the company launched and has been expanding nationally since 2011. Those services can support speeds of 100 gigabits per second over fiber. The launch of Business Internet 1 Gig and Business Internet 500 comes a few months after Comcast introduced Indiana’s residential 1 Gig service.
