Comcast offers fiber to a US city after suing it for making its own

Comcast offers new gigabit fiber to an American city after suing them for making their own

Comcast has recently announced a two gigabit per second internet option to 200,000 potential customers living in Cattanooga, USA. That's nothing too unusual given normal circumstances, but funnily enough this city isn't your 'run of the mill' rollout.




The reason it's a little different is because Comcast actually sued the Cattanooga utility board previously for trying to build a fiber network of their own and even though the lawsuit was a failure, hundreds of thousands of users were reportedly left out as a result - so in comes the forever helpful Comcast to the rescue.


Its Gigabit Pro service doesn't have a price currently attached but we're sure that every single dollar will annoy local residents. Cattanooga currently has the fastest internet available in the United States (gigabit) to those whom can receive it and reports claim that it sets users back a mere $70 per month.


Comcast will also be rolling out this internet service to Atlanta, Florida and California.
