Comcast launches 100 Mbps high-speed Internet for Calif. businesses

By March 11, 2011

Comcast Corp. now offers its 100 Mbps high-speed Internet service to businesses in California, including Davis.

“The 100 Mbps download/10 Mbps upload speed tier is one of the fastest broadband services available in the nation and is ideal for data-intensive businesses that have the need for speed,” a news release said.

Comcast Business Class 100 Mbps/10 Mbps solution is up to 60 times faster than download speeds for a T1 line (1.5 Mbps).

“Internet speeds this fast are a game changer for businesses,” said Bill Stemper, president of Comcast Business Services, in the news release. “100 Mbps provides the bandwidth required for an office full of people to access the hosted, cloud-based services that are fueling business productivity while also reducing costs.”

Comcast is also making its scalable voice solution called Comcast Business Class Trunks available to businesses in California. Comcast Business Class Trunks provide a connection between the customer’s telephone system and the Comcast network. A customer can choose to have any number of voice channels — essentially simultaneous usable phone lines — from six to 23.

“Our scalable voice trunking solution enables businesses with more sophisticated communications needs or multiple locations to have a reliable phone service,” said Mark O’Leary, regional vice president of Business Services for Comcast California, in the news release.

“Since our IP network is physically separate and diverse from leased or public facilities, disruptions to other networks do not impact the performance of our network. Plus, when Comcast Business Class Trunks are coupled with lightning-fast Comcast Business Class Internet, business owners can save up to 20 percent over other offerings.”

With Comcast Business Class Trunks, every employee in a business has the option of his or her own direct line (instead of a main line with an extension). In addition, as the business grows, trunks and employee phone numbers can increase easily and efficiently, the news release said.
