Comcast Working On A 4G Network

Posted Jun 30, 2009

Comcast Corporation is working on a new initiative while partnering with Clearwire Corp. and several other companies that utilize WiMax technologies.  The initiative is the implementation of fourth-generation (4G) broadband services.  People on 3G networks are already able to update their blogs and websites.

But the Comcast High-Speed 2go service will allow those using laptops and netbooks use a wireless connection anywhere in the U.S.  The connection will be available at speeds faster than before.  The download speeds will be about 4 megabits per second compared to the 1-1.5 megabit speeds available on 3G networks.

High-Speed 2go is now available in Portland, Oregon.  The service will be available in Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Chicago by the end of the year.  The service will cost $49.99 per month.  A nationwide version will be available for $69.99 per month.
