Atlantic Broadband offers 1 Gigabit service

Atlantic Broadband, the nation's 13th largest cable operator, announced Wednesday that it is delivering 1 Gigabit symmetrical Internet within its Miami footprint. Atlantic Broadband launched this service to residents of Indian Creek Village this summer and is evaluating expansion opportunities.

With this 1 Gigabit service, Atlantic Broadband Indian Creek residents now can download download a digital movie (14 GB) in under two minutes or 25 songs in one second. Customers can also video conference with 10 people at once, or work from home with a connection that is faster than what exists in most offices, the company said.

“Atlantic Broadband is proud to be the first company to deliver 1 Gigabit Internet service to its customers here in the Miami Beach area,” said Atlantic Broadband’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of South Florida, David Keefe. “While other companies are talking about what they will be doing, Atlantic Broadband moved forward and started offering this service in one of its communities. We look forward to extending access to our Gigabit Internet service to other properties and communities within our Miami footprint.”

Atlantic Broadband offers the 1 Gigabit service to Indian Creek Village residents in a package that also includes more than 350 TV channels, TiVo’s multi-room DVR platform with access to Netflix content, and unlimited local and domestic calling for up to four phone lines.
