Mediacom Lights Up 1-Gig in Georgia

Mediacom Communications said it has launched 1-Gig service across its Georgia network footprint, with the DOCSIS 3.1-based offering now available to about 275,000 homes passed there.

The rollout follows similar, recent launches in parts of Minnesota; Huntsville, Ala; portions of southern Tennessee, and Mediacom's network footprint in Iowa.

Mediacom upgraded its network to D3.1 last year and is now in the process of launching services that take advantage of the multi-gig-capable platform for HFC networks and eventually reach 3 million homes and businesses in its 22 state footprint.

Mediacom said it has launched 1-Gig to more than 600 communities and will add more throughout the year as more D3.1 modems become available.

In its initial D3.1 launch markets, Mediacom has been selling a 1-Gig (downstream) service, paired with upstream speeds up to 50 Mbps, at $139.99 per month as a standalone, with a “promotional package offers” that will also be announced at a later date.  Mediacom’s DOCSIS 3.1-based 1-Gig offering comes with a monthly data limit of 6 terabytes before overage charges are applied ($10 for each additional bucket of 50 GB of usage).

Mediacom has also been launching a new 500 Mbps tier of service where it’s introducing the 1-Gig product.

“Today, we live in a world that is driven by technology,” said State Representative Ed Rynders, Chairman of the House Governmental Affairs Committee in the Georgia General Assembly, in a statement. “Speed matters in our global economy, and the investments Mediacom has made to make ultra-fast broadband available to more than a quarter million homes in southwest Georgia provides a huge economic advantage to our citizens.”
