WOW Widens 1-Gig Reach

WOW is broadening its 1-Gig horizons as it extends the reach of DOCSIS 3.1-powered services in a handful of markets. 

Here’s the rundown:

-Edge-out expansions to communities in North Ridgeville (13,000 homes passed) and Parma Heights (8,200 homes passed), Ohio.

-The completion of a 1-Gig deployment to about 1,100 customers in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich.

-An expansion of 1-Gig service in Huntsville, Ala., where the offering is now available to 30,000 customers, about double the number it was available to when service was introduced there in October 2016.

Last fall, WOW began to offer 1 Gbps (downstream) broadband service initially in four markets – Auburn and Huntsville, Ala., and Evansville, Ind.; and Knoxville, Tenn. It has been selling 1-Gig as a standalone (and uncapped) residential service for $70 per month, so long as customers agree to a two-year contract.
