Comcast backs Start-up to ramp up Web Speeds

Reuters - The investment arm of Comcast Corp., the U.S. No. 1 cable operator, said on Friday it will back a Silicon Valley start-up that develops chips to enable super-fast Internet access and more high-definition channels.

The story is too old to be commented.

Comcast demonstrated Internet speeds of up to 100 megabits per second at The Cable Show. Most major U.S. cable operators today typically offer customers speeds around 5 megabits per second.

Holy Shmitty,
Thats 20 times faster and will be allocated to the average consumer.

hey just letting you know that comcast will be increasing speeds by the end of the year, they will be 16mb down and 1 or 2mb up, depending on where you live.
