Comcast telling subscribers about 105Mbps web

Cable provider Comcast has started to advertise ultra high-speed, 105Mbps home Internet access, first hinted at back in May. Bundled with its Xfinity all-digital TV, Internet and home phone service, the DOCSIS 3.0-powered residential tier will be more than twice as fast as the company's current 50Mbps offering. While pricing hasn't been officially revealed, it is likely to cost $200 per month for the bundle.

The cable provider may reveal the specific details on Thursday, during its second quarter report. The service was unveiled by a letter to a subscriber in Denver, one of the markets where Comcast will offer the service. Xfinity is also offered in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, and San Francisco/Bay Area, among others.

The bundle will include a near 20,000 On-Demand video library, one of the largest selections of HD channels and TV accessible on subscriber TVs. The voice service will include unlimited nationwide calling and caller ID on TV and computer screens as well as handsets. [via LightReading]

    Still not symmetrical

    Without symmetrical bandwidth, you are still severely limited (unless you just download all day).

    This is also about 10x as expensive as symmetrical 100Mbit/sec service in some countries. Maybe we should just start running cat6 gig-e between homes ourselves.
