DENVER -- Comcast, one of the nation's leading providers of entertainment, information and communications products and services, today announced it is making the leap from broadband to wideband with the launch of next-generation DOCSIS 3.0 in Colorado. The launch in the Denver Metro area begins the company's roll-out of faster Internet speeds throughout the state. The speed upgrades began in late August.

Later this year, Comcast's new services will be available to residential homes and businesses throughout most of the communities that Comcast serves in Colorado, from Pueblo to Fort Collins and in most of the Mountain communities along the I-70 corridor.

With wideband, Comcast introduces a new echelon of Internet speed tiers, which redefines the customer experience online and creates a platform for Internet innovation in the years ahead. Wideband allows Comcast to offer among the fastest speeds available today, including the Extreme 50 tier with download speeds of up to 50 Mbps. It also enables Comcast to double speeds for the majority of existing high-speed Internet customers at no additional cost.

"We applaud Comcast for their efforts to bring the benefits of advanced wideband Internet to all areas of our city," said Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper. "We are grateful for companies like Comcast that continue to demonstrate their commitment to enrich our lives through innovation and investment."
