Comcast launches new broadband service in California, Maryland
Comcast has announced a $50 per month package of broadband internet access in California and Maryland for $50 a month.
The company will launch the service in both states next week.
It’s the latest in a string of high-profile broadband rollouts in the region.
The news follows a similar move last month from Charter, which announced plans to offer broadband to households in both Washington state and New Jersey.
Charter said it will offer broadband in those states in 2020, and its announcement comes a week after the company said it would launch the Service Blue service in the state of Virginia in 2019.
Comcast said it also announced a new broadband package for customers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, offering speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second, and said it plans to add more services to the network in the coming years.
It is also working on a plan to add a new service in New York City, but no details have been released.
The Comcast plan is the latest move in a series of high profile broadband roll outs in the U.S. and across the world.
In October, Comcast announced plans for a $45 per month broadband package in the New York metropolitan area, but only for households earning $50,000 or more.
In September, Comcast said it planned to offer a similar service in Chicago and Atlanta.
The cable company also announced plans in September for a new wireless service called FiOS Wireless, which is available to households earning more than $100,000 a year.
In November, Comcast also announced it was expanding its wireless broadband offerings to Chicago and New York.
