When Comcast’s broadband speeds reach speeds exceeding 100 Mbps, it’s time to ditch it
- by admin
Comcast’s high-speed broadband service can reach speeds that reach up to 100 Mbps in some markets, and in some cases, Comcast may actually be able to do it at 100 Mbps or faster.
According to a recent study by the broadband industry group the NCTA, the speed of Comcast’s residential broadband service is capable of reaching speeds of up to 10 Mbps.
In other words, Comcast’s service reaches speeds that can be accessed in some places up to a distance of more than a mile, and at speeds that are up to 200 times faster than the speed limit of some residential broadband networks.
A speed of 100 Mbps is the maximum speed a broadband connection can achieve.
In some cases this might be possible at higher speeds, but in others it’s unlikely.
When Comcast is able to reach these speeds, they can create a bottleneck that can potentially prevent Comcast customers from accessing their content.
This bottleneck is especially significant when the customer’s home or business is located in a part of the country that Comcast does not currently serve.
In those cases, when Comcast’s speeds are able to get past this bottleneck, it could result in a network outage, which could result from Comcast losing the right to offer broadband services to customers.
If Comcast’s customers are able, Comcast could even be forced to reroute some of the traffic through its own network, which would result in increased network congestion.
In short, Comcast is a monopoly that has been using its monopoly power to deliver high-quality broadband service to its subscribers.
That’s why the NCTAA believes that the current situation is unacceptable and it is the responsibility of Congress to ensure that the ISPs broadband deployment can deliver on its promise to consumers.
