Time Warner Cable adds Raleigh to list of D3 deployments
Next up on Time Warner Cable's DOCSIS 3.0 deployment list is Raleigh and other cities located in North Carolina's Triangle Area.
Time Warner Cable said it would launch its 50 Mbps down, 5 Mbps up Wideband Internet tier this spring for both business and residential customers in Raleigh, Cary, Durham and Chapel Hill, as well as Wilson.
Time Warner Cable didn't say how much the residential service would cost, but it's priced at $99.95 per month in Charlotte, N.C. Time Warner Cable's business-class Wideband Internet was launched in Cincinnati last year with a price tag of $349.95 per month, while the cost is $289.95 in New York City.
Time Warner Cable's DOCSIS 3.0 deployments appear to be ramping up as it made a similar announcement last week on the availability of DOCSIS 3.0 this spring in Rochester, N.Y.
Like the Rochester announcement, Time Warner Cable said Triangle Area DOCSIS 3.0 subscribers would be able to connect up to five wireless devices simultaneously once the service is enabled.
"For our residential customers, Wideband Internet gives all home network devices – desktops, laptops, gaming consoles and smartphones – our fastest connection," said Christine Whitaker, area vice president of operations for Raleigh/Coastal/Fayetteville. "Time Warner Cable is committed to delivering products that speak to the high-speed data needs of business, as well as both the tech-savvy user and multimedia families who simply want the fastest speeds at home right now."
Time Warner Cable has trailed the other top cable operators in its rollout of DOCSIS 3.0-based tiers, but the launches started picking up steam last year.
