Comcast bringing 2 gigabit Internet service to Colorado this summer


Comcast announced Thursday that it will make two gigabit-per-second service available to almost 1 million Colorado homes, starting this summer.

Prices haven't been announced, but the company told the Denver Post that the customers in Front Range cities and Colorado Springs will have access to the options quickly. Mountain towns and southern Colorado cities will also get the faster service, according to Comcast Spokesperson Cindy Parsons.

The installation process for two gigabit Internet service is a little more involved, requiring the "installation of professional-grade equipment," according to the release. But Parsons told the Denver Business Journal that's not slowing the company down:

“We’ll have gig speeds rolled out faster to more homes than any other [Internet service provider],” Parsons said. “When we offer Internet service, our approach is not to serve a single neighborhood, but instead an entire city or service area.”
