Comcast Announces New ‘Super-Fast’ Internet Speed for Corinth

Comcast’s faster Internet speeds for Corinth will be delivered over a cable modem.

Staff reports

Comcast announced Monday that it is launching a new, faster Internet service for Corinth residential and business customers.

The new service will have speeds of up to 1 gigabit-per-second, which Comcast called “super fast.”

Comcast said it will start delivering the faster speeds in late April through cable modem technology that uses existing wiring most people already have in their homes.

This project will require no construction.

Communities with fast Internet speeds can be attractive to companies looking to expand, according to Comcast.

    Great, faster speeds. Let’s not forget that overt half of Alcorn county still does not adequate broadband access. Satellite and wireless providers do provide some usable service, but can hardly be deemed as broadband. In 2015 the Federal Communications Commission defined broadband as connection speeds of at least 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream — a significant increase from the prior definition of 4 Mbps downstream and 1 Mbps upstream. Multiple household users, streaming, IoT (Internet of Things) and many other connected technologies have driven up the use of internet.
    When companies such as Comcast, Charter, AT&T, Frontier, and others decide to start investing more in their infrastructure, and providing these service to more people, then that will be news. Technology to provide these have become cheaper and more reliable. Even DSL technologies can obtain up to 100 Mbps or faster (Google VDSL and G.Fast)
    It is evident that AT&T is letting their current copper infrastructure decline. You can see their pedestals open all over the place. Yet little is being done to replace the aging infrastructure.
