KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – March 10, 2020 – Comcast announced today it has launched several new high-speed internet service tiers including one that will deliver speeds faster than one gigabit-per-second to residential and business customers in two East Tennessee markets. Beginning this month, Comcast will offer the new internet options to customers in Sevierville and Gatlinburg, Tenn.
The new Internet service options include Xfinity Extreme (400 Mbps), Extreme Pro (800 Mbps) and Gig (1,200 Mbps). These services will be among the fastest and most widely available in the area and includes access on-the-go to the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network. Comcast will deliver these super-fast speeds using the existing wiring that most people already have in their homes and businesses.
“As the need for speed continues to increase, we’re excited to expand our internet offerings to our East Tennessee customers and continue our investments in this area,” said Jason Gumbs, Comcast’s Regional Senior Vice President. “We are constantly innovating to ensure that we are providing our customers with the best internet experience, powered by award-winning technologies, new products and solutions.”
In addition to residential consumers, small business customers will also benefit from faster download speeds without costly and disruptive construction of new network facilities with the new Gigabit offering. The new service tiers complement other multi-gigabit options already available to Comcast Business customers, which the company launched and has been expanding nationally since 2011. Those services can support speeds of 100 gigabits per second over fiber.
