Comcast Touts Gigabit Internet Rollout

From PC Mag: Comcast today said its ultra-fast gigabit internet service is now available to "nearly all" of the 58 million homes and businesses in its service area, which covers 39 states and Washington, D.C.

The deployment, which kicked off 19 months ago, "represents the fastest rollout of gigabit speeds to the most homes in the country," according to Comcast.

The company's residential Xfinity Gigabit Internet service uses network connections that are already in most customers' homes to simplify installation.

"We've been able to do this without having to dig up flower beds and pull new wires into people's homes," Eric Schaefer, Comcast's SVP and General Manager of broadband, automation, and communications, told PCMag today.
