Comcast has launched its high-speed wireless data service in 10 additional Eastern Division markets as the company continues its nationwide rollout of High-Speed 2go, which is a mobile Internet solution that provides wireless Internet speeds via wireless data cards.
Launched last year in Philadelphia, High-Speed 2go is now also available in the following Eastern Division markets: Baltimore, Richmond, Washington, D.C. and the Pennsylvania markets of Harrisburg, York, Scranton, Reading, Lancaster, State College and Lebanon.
Comcast’s High-Speed 2go offers 4G wireless service in addition to a nationwide 3G wireless service. Comcast will be selling this wireless service bundled with one or more of its Internet, phone and television products.
Comcast is currently selling two different data cards and service plans in the new markets:
- High-Speed 2go Nationwide (3G) service uses a 3G-only data card giving customers nationwide wireless service. The 3G-only device operates on Sprint’s national 3G network.
- High-Speed 2go Nationwide Preferred (4G/3G) service delivers metro 4G service plus coast-to-coast access on Sprint’s national 3G network. The 4G/3G device operates by switching between available 4G and 3G networks.
In addition, some areas like Philadelphia are now offering High-Speed 2go Metro (4G) service, using a 4G-only data card for wireless service within the 4G metro coverage area. The 4G device operates only in a 4G network footprint.
Comcast’s Eastern Division serves approximately 5.7 million residential and business customers across Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, DC. The Eastern Division is based in Oaks, Pennsylvania and employs more than 20,000 people.
