Comcast Business DOCSIS 3.1 Footprint
The company’s DOCSIS 3.1-based business internet service is designed to provide gigabit speeds for any business environment – whether a distributed enterprise with offices across the country, or a small business with only a handful of locations.

The service tiers complement existing gigabit and multi-gigabit options already available to Comcast Business customers, including Comcast Business Ethernet, which the company launched in, and has been expanding nationally since, 2011. Comcast Ethernet services can support speeds of up to 100 Gbps over fiber.

“With more companies adopting cloud-based services, leveraging SD-WAN to connect branch locations, and using high-performance internet as a competitive differentiator and growth tool, it’s more important than ever that organizations manage their current bandwidth needs while also planning for the future requirements and the dynamics of the digital transformation of businesses,” said Peter Neill, Comcast Business vice president for Comcast’s west division, in a prepared statement. “Our gig-speed network allows businesses to quickly and easily scale network capacity at their locations and leverage innovative technology services to keep customers happy and increase the bottom line.”

With the continued roll out of its gig-speed network, Comcast’s “Business Internet 1 Gig” and “Business Internet 500” speed tiers are now available to business customers in the West, Central, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast service areas using the company’s existing network.

Pricing varies based on business location and number of locations to be served as well as the services to which the business currently subscribes.
