Time Warner Cable will be launching its Wideband Internet service – with speeds of up to 50 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up – to business and residential customers across the Fayetteville and Fort Bragg, N.C., area by early summer.
"Time Warner Cable's Wideband Internet is our most powerful Internet product for customers and will more than triple current Internet speeds," said Christine Whitaker, TWC's area vice president of operations for Eastern Carolina. "Time Warner Cable is committed to delivering products that meet the high-speed data needs of our business customers and our residential customers, who want the fastest speeds at home for their computers, smartphones and game consoles."
Time Warner Cable said it would invest more than $1.5 million in the Fayetteville area to support the upgrade and higher speeds.
Time Warner Cable didn't say how much the residential service would cost in Fayetteville and the surrounding area, but it's priced at $99.95 per month in Charlotte.
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 previously announced at the start of this year that Wideband Internet was coming to other areas of North Carolina, including Raleigh and other cities located in the Triangle Area.
In its first-quarter earnings report late last month, Time Warner Cable said it had 9,000 wideband subscribers, which nearly doubled the number of subscribers from the previous fourth quarter.
