Cable One spending $60 million on upgrade
Cable One is spending $60 million on a infrastructure enhancement, which includes upgrading nearly 50,000 amps, installing more than 600 nodes, replacing 800 miles of cable and adding 600 miles of fiber.
The project, which started last year and will continue through next year, will impact the majority of Cable One’s 42 markets. Broadband International is the primary vendor on the project, but Cisco and Motorola gear is being used as well.
Cable One said it had embarked on the upgrade in order to improve its triple play services, which includes channel bonding and DOCSIS 3.0 implementations on the data side.
”We’re committed to delivering the best possible experience to our customers,” said Cable One President and CEO Tom Might. “We’re confident that this investment will ensure that our customers will receive superior service in the speed, reliability, and the overall performance of our services.”
Cable One, which is a subsidiary of The Washington Post Company and the nation’s 10th-largest cable operator, offers its triple play services to 730,000 customers in 19 states.
