Comcast to offer super-fast Internet in Nashville

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Comcast says it is bringing its super-fast Internet service to Nashville, but won't say how much it will cost to install or subscribe.

The company says the fiber optic service will offer speeds of 2 gigabits per second — or double what is currently offered by some municipal electric providers and by Google.

Comcast previously announced it will offer its Gigabit Pro service in Chattanooga, Atlanta and in Florida and California. The company says the service will roll out to 18 million homes by the end of this year.

Comcast has been among cable TV and Internet providers fighting the expansion of municipal broadband in cities like Chattanooga. The Federal Communications Commission voted in March to override state laws blocking the expansion of municipal broadband.
