Comcast will offer its DOCSIS 3.0 speeds to about 10mln customers in more than 10 markets in the coming months. Philly, Boston and parts of NJ are gearing up for wideband service, with some parts of New England already lit up. Additional markets will be announced in the coming weeks. Comcast announced at Jan’s CES that it would offer the service to 20% of its footprint by year-end. It plans to have the service available across its footprint by ’10. Consumers can find out if the service is available in their area by visiting www.comcast.com/fastestfast. Comcast launched its 1st DOCSIS 3.0 market earlier this year in Minneapolis/St Paul. Wideband markets will get 2 new tiers: "Extreme 50," 50Mbps/10Mbps and "Ultra," 22/5. Existing customers will see speeds doubled to 12Mbps/2 from 6/1 and 16/2 from 8/1.www.comcast.com/fastestfast.
