NEW YORK -- Time Warner Cable (TWC) is now delivering Internet speeds up to 300 Megabits per second (Mbps) to customers in several New York City and Los Angeles communities following network upgrades to transform the customer experience. TWC has boosted speeds for all its residential Internet plans in Costa Mesa and West Hollywood in California and in areas of Woodside (in Queens) and Staten Island in New York City.

Most notably, TWC customers in these communities who subscribe to the Standard Internet plan, formerly up to 15 Mbps, will now receive up to 50 Mbps, and customers who subscribe to the Ultimate plan, formerly up to 100 Mbps, will receive up to 300 Mbps – more than three times their current speeds, at no extra charge. Customers will need a DOCSIS 3.0 modem to enjoy the full benefits of the speed increases, and will be contacted by Time Warner Cable about their choices for receiving a new device.

“These significant speed increases and network enhancements will allow our Internet customers to get the most out of their TWC experience,” said Time Warner Cable Chairman and CEO Robert D. Marcus. “With this service transformation, our customers can enjoy all the ways they use TWC Internet even better, including streaming video, downloading music and more.”

I wonder who the threat is?
Rogers Communications did something similar up here in Canada in reaction to a threat.  I'm curious what's on TWC's radar?

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
