Mediacom’s gigabit deployments continue to roll with an announcement Wednesday that the company has launched 1 Gbps service across its northern Indiana footprint.
“Mediacom has invested over $8 billion of private capital in its national network to ensure that the hardworking people living in America’s smaller cities and towns can access world-class communications services,” Todd Curtis, group VP of Mediacom’s Lincoln Region, comments. “We want the people and businesses of Indiana to succeed, and that is why we are thrilled to be able to offer ultrafast gigabit internet services across the entirety of our Hoosier State service territory.”
According to Mediacom, residents and businesses in 75 small cities and towns across 20 counties in the state will now have access to gigabit speeds. The company says it has now launched 1 Gbps internet in more than 900 communities across its service area, including in Illinois, Georgia, Minnesota, and Alabama. Mediacom adds it plans to announce additional gigabit internet launches on a market-by-market basis throughout the remainder of the year. All of those launches will also come alongside the introduction of a 500 Mbps service tier, the company notes.
Mediacom boasts that it was the first major U.S. cable company to fully transition to the DOCSIS 3.1 Gigasphere platform. Company CTO J.R. Walden states rollouts of the platform are laying the groundwork for “multi-Gigabit” services offerings down the line.
