Comcast® recently introduced gigabit internet service to both business and residential subscribers in select areas of Reading city in Pennsylvania. The 1 Gbps speeds would be amongst the quickest and one of the most widely accessible to the customers of the cable giant.

“The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA) applauds Comcast® for leading the way in providing the fastest internet speeds in the marketplace for Reading area customers,” said the President and Chief Executive Officer of Greater Reading Chamber Alliance, Randy Peers. “Our area businesses will now be in a better position to more efficiently manage their diverse technology needs, taking advantage of 1 Gigabit Internet download speeds, as well as accessing an extensive Wi-Fi network with hotspots throughout the Greater Reading area, including many in the City of Reading.”

Some of the areas in Reading that can access Comcast’s gigabit internet service in the said speeds include West Reading’s boroughs, Mount Penn, Brecknock, Shillington, and Upper Tulpehocken township. There are several other areas as well, that can access gigabit internet, but Comcast® is yet to deliver it throughout the city.

Gigabit internet service makes use of a cable modem that is compatible with DOCSIS 3.1 standard. The DOCSIS 3.1 technology enables Comcast® to deploy gigabit internet over telecommunications lines existing in customers’ homes and business neighborhoods. To get accesses to the best internet service, Comcast® subscribers should install a cable modem that is compatible with DOCSIS 3.1.
