How does 101 Mbps sound?
While Time Warner Cable may be holding back on its DOCSIS 3.0 rollout because it is reconsidering what it should do after consumers lashed out against its consumption-based billing internet plans, New York-based ISP Cablevision is pushing ahead to reach ludicrous speed using DOCSIS 3.0 technology.
Cablevision announced today that starting May 11 it will be offering a new “ultra” tier that will grant users a blistering (by North American standards, at least) 101 Mbps downstream and 15 Mbps upstream all for $99.95 a month.
DSLReports said that it received confirmation from Cablevision spokesman Jim Maiella that the $99.95 price is unbundled, and the new tier does not come with any kind of a usage cap or overage fees.
That’s not the only speed boost news from the company, however, as Reuters adds that Cablevision is also doubling the speed of its Wi-Fi local access to 3.0 Mbps.
For those of you with access to Cablevision’s services, we’re extremely jealous.
