BOSTON and SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Comcast, one of the nation's leading providers of entertainment, information and communications products and services, today announced that it has completed its evolution from broadband to wideband across the Bay State, with the launch of next-generation DOCSIS 3.0 in 11 additional Western Massachusetts communities. With wideband, Comcast is introducing a new echelon of Internet speed tiers, redefining the customer experience online and creating a platform for Internet innovation in the years ahead.

Two new speed tiers are now available to residential homes and businesses in the Western Massachusetts communities of Bernardston, Erving, Gill, Greenfield, Hardwick, Monson, Montague, Northfield, Palmer, Ware and Warren. With these launches, the company now offers wideband in all 238 communities it serves across the Commonwealth.

Comcast offers among the fastest Internet speeds available today with wideband, including the Extreme 50 tier with download speeds of up to 50 Mbps, and the Ultra tier delivering download speeds up to 22 Mbps. Wideband has also enabled Comcast to double speeds for the majority of its existing high-speed Internet customers.

"Wideband utilizes our existing advanced fiber-optic network in neighborhoods across our footprint to dramatically enhance our customers' online experience," said Doug Guthrie, Senior Vice President of Comcast's Western New England Region, which includes Western Massachusetts. "This new service will enable us to continue to offer our customers even faster speeds and an entirely new realm of Internet innovation."
