Comcast fiber-optics allow ‘wideband’ in Bay area

Comcast customers in the San Francisco Bay area will get two new broadband options as the company utilizes its high-speed fiber-optic network. The “wideband” packages will come in 22 Mbps or 50 Mbps and have already become available to residents in the San Jose-Silicon Valley and Monterey-Salinas areas.

The “Extreme 50” tier with 50MB speed will run $139.99 per month and allow quick download of high-definition (HD) movies. Comcast says a 6GB HD movie will download in about 16 minutes, while a standard-definition movie will download in about 5 minutes.

The more economical “Ultra” plan with 22GB speed will run $62.95 per month and download content at about half the speed.

Comcast plans to reach other parts of the Bay area with its improved broadband network later this year.
