In the media: Time Warner Cable lights up D3 in central Ohio
Time Warner Cable's Wideband Internet tier, which features download speeds of up to 50 Mbps, is now available to the cable operator's subscribers in central Ohio.
According to a story in today's The Columbus Dispatch, the DOCSIS 3.0 tier, which has speeds of up to 5 Mbps on the return path, is now available throughout most of Time Warner Cable's Mid-Ohio division.
Time Warner Cable is charging residential users $99.95 per month for its Wideband Internet offering. The newspaper said it is also offering Road Runner Broadband Extreme, which has speeds of 30/5 Mbps. Road Runner Extreme is available for $20 more per month than Road Runner Broadband, or $10 more per month than Road Runner Broadband Turbo.
Time Warner Cable is also offering business-class tiers in Ohio with speeds of 50/5 and 35/5.
Compared with other large cable operators, Time Warner Cable was late out of the starting blocks with its DOCSIS 3.0-based tiers, but it has been picking up momentum. In its recent first-quarter earnings report, Time Warner Cable said it had a total of 9,000 wideband subscribers, which almost doubled the 5,000 users from the fourth quarter.
