Comcast continues to roll out DOCSIS 3.0 in 65 percent of its footprint by year-end, announcing it has completed the launch of wideband in San Francisco with service to the East Bay and North Bay areas. The company previously deployed wideband in the San Jose-Silicon Valley area, in San Francisco and on the Peninsula, in portions of the East Bay and in the Monterey-Salinas area earlier this year.

The company also announced the launch of its high-speed wireless data service in Atlanta as the company continues its nationwide rollout of Comcast High-Speed 2go, a fourth-generation (4G), wireless, high-speed data service that provides wireless Internet via wireless data cards. Comcast will be selling this wireless service bundled with one or more of its Internet, phone and TV products.

Comcast is selling two different data cards and service plans:

  • High-Speed 2go Metro service uses a 4G-only data card, giving customers wireless metro coverage in its 4G service footprint.
  • High-Speed 2go Nationwide service delivers metro 4G plus coast-to-coast access on Sprint’s national 3G network.

Comcast is selling wireless data services following its investment in Clearwire in November 2008. Comcast’s 4G service will be provided via the Clearwire network, and its 3G service will be provided by Sprint’s nationwide 3G network. (For more on Clearwire, click here).
