Comcast Corporation has launched a 100 Mbps high-speed Internet service to businesses in Minnesota’s Twin Cities region.  For $369.95 per month, Comcast is offering business customers up to 100 Mbps downloads and up to 15 Mbps uploads.

The service is possible because of Comcast’s deployment of DOCSIS 3.0 technology, also referred to as wideband, for delivering high-speed Internet service across fiber-optic networks.

“100 Mbps service is ideal for data-intensive businesses that need this kind of speed and want an alternative to slower, more expensive T1 lines,” said Bill Stemper, president of Comcast Business Services, in a statement.

At its second quarter earnings call, Comcast said business services was its fastest growing segment. (For more, click here).

With download speeds of up to 100 Mbps, customers can download a 2 GB file (such as a hi-res X-ray or a graphic design) in about 2 ½ minutes compared to a typical business class 1.5 Mbps T1 line than would take more than 3 hours, according to Comcast’s statement.
