Comcast's super-fast cable internet will surpass Google Fiber
Comcast announced this week that it has plans to roll out a next-generation cable technology that will opportune it to compete at the same speed that Google Fiber has, which is 1 gigabit per second.
The company is planning to make its 1-gigabit service rollouts to be available later this year and looking forward to extending the service nationwide in about 2-3 years as reported.
Comcast has the plan to upgrade the entire network to the DOCSIS 3.1 standard that would allow gigabit speeds for all Comcast customers, as informed by an executive to the press. An early study for the year 2015 from digital traffic company Akamai ranked average U.S. internet connection speeds (48.8 megabits per second) as 17th "fastest " on global scale, trailing not only high tech strongholds like Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, and Israel but also relatively backwards nations such as Romania, Uruguay, and Latvia.
As Comcast tests on the new technology, it will connect people to the web at more than 1 Gigabit per second or even faster, surpassing Google Fiber. That would be at least 50 times faster than the usual broadband connection that most cable companies offer.
Using the right modem and ideal circumstances, the technology is able to supply Internet speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second.
Comcast's new technology will effectuate by making the transfer of data more productive over existing cable networks, and doesn't require installation of fiber optic cables in homes. This is very different from the company's existing super high-speed Internet service Gigabit Pro, which is capable of delivering data at 2 Gigabits per second via an in-home fiber network.
Companies should speed up the delivery of their data to provide faster Internet service and speedy delivery of their data.
According to Google, AT&T and Comcast, Gigabit speeds are important for providing fast service to multiple devices that could be connected to the Internet at the same time.
