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.
I wonder if cablevision is available in the southbay of california?
I also had to LOL at the Spaceballs reference.
Time Warner: Ludicrous speed?!?! Sir, we've never gone that fast before..
Cablevision: What are you, chicken?
Time Warner: No..we just figure that if we give people real internet, they might get mad when we take it away and charge them more.
