Comcast to bring 100Mbps to the USA in 2011

The largest cable provider in the US, Comcast, will double the speed of its fastest available residential Internet service as it plans on beginning to introduce a 100Mbps download service. Currently, it offers is 50Mbps service to more than three quarters of its customers across the USA. Comcast hopes to be able to offer the 100Mbps service to most if not all of its subscribers in about 12 to 18 months.

Thus far, only two competitors offer similar fast services, albeit to limited markets. Cablevision has its 101Mbps download service in New York, while Mediacom sells a 105Mbps tier in two small markets.

Comcast has not said where it will initially launch the service or what it will cost. An indication may be its commercial 100Mbps download, 15Mbps upload service in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, which costs $370 per month. The home service should be cheaper than that, however.
