Chattanooga gets more gig as Comcast rolls out 2 gigabit service

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Competing and surpassing EPB's famed gigabit broadband service, cable giant Comcast rolled out their 2 gigabit service to 200,000 customers in Chattanooga, beginning in June.

Comcast said in a new release that they expect to expand the service over the next several months.

Named ‘Gigabit Pro,' the service “will be the fastest internet available to residential customers in Chattanooga,” said Doug Guthrie, SVP of Comcast Cable's South Region.

Earlier this month, Comcast announced Gigabit Pro rollouts in Atlanta, Florida and California, and plans to roll out the service to 18 million homes by the end of 2015.

Comcast's fiber network has been extending deeper into neighborhoods and closer to homes, building out more than 145,000 route miles of fiber across its service area for residential customers.
