Cogeco Cable is now offering its DOCSIS 3.0-based Ultimate 30 and Ultimate 50 data tiers in Shawinigan, Quebec.

Cogeco, which launched the tiers yesterday, said the new offerings were the fastest download speeds in the area.

The Ultimate 30 package offers speeds of up to 30 Mbps for downloads and up to 1.5Mbps for uploads, with a monthly download cap of 100 GB. For the Ultimate 50 package, speeds can reach 50 Mbps for downloads and 1.5 Mbps for uploads, with a monthly download cap of 150 GB.

"We always strive to offer our customers more flexibility, speed and choices. Today, the whole family can use the Internet at the same time for online banking, video gaming, shopping, or for downloading videos or films, and all with the same service. Cogeco's HSI packages like Ultimate 30 and Ultimate 50 meet those needs perfectly," said Ron Perrotta, vice president of marketing and strategic planning at Cogeco Cable.

For Quebec customers of Cogeco's video or phone services, the Ultimate 30 package is offered at $54.95 per month for the first 12 months, a savings of $5 per month, while Ultimate 50 is offered at $89.95 per month.

Cogeco customers who subscribe only to Cogeco Internet service pay $64.95 per month for Ultimate 30 and $94.95& per month for Ultimate 50.

Cogeco said it would continue the gradual rollout of its Ultimate 30 and Ultimate 50 wideband tiers throughout its footprint.
