Comcast Launches 100 Mbps Internet Service for Businesses in Washington, D.C.


Just a day after Comcast launched their  4G Mobile Internet Service in Washington, D.C., they begun rolling out their 100 Mbps high-speed Internet service to businesses in the city, making the Washington, D.C.  one of the first in the nation to gain access to the company’s new speed tier.

The wideband “Deluxe 100” service, which initially launched in the Twin Cities, will allow users to download a large 2 GB file (such as a hi-resolution X-ray or graphic design) in about 2.5 minutes. Downloading the same sized file on a typical 1.5 Mbps T1 line would take almost three hours, the company said. The service is available to Comcast Business Class customers for $369.95 per month.

    are they metering this service like they do the home use packages

  2. Web just became Agents for them and NBC Solutions will pay 12% Almostr all carriers as Master agents

  3. Yeah, I have the business class service in Michigan. If you run mail servers, look out! I have several mail servers, as I run websites for friends and whatnot. I have the static IP address, but unlike commercial services like T1, Comcast will *NOT* delegate reverse DNS to your DNS server. This means every single time you add or remove or change a mail server, you’ll end up with bounced email and problems unless you call them and manually go through the process of having them set up PTR records.

    Hassle!

    If you’re going to advertise a business internet solution with static IP addresses, at least support the functionality one would expect from such a service.
