By Jessica OrlichmayerDecember 7, 2017 9:17amSome cable providers like Comcast and Time Warner Cable are rolling out higher-speed internet to the masses.
But others are not.
The average cable internet connection speed on a phone line or on a home broadband modem is less than half the speed of the average residential broadband connection, according to data from the FCC.
While Verizon Fios speeds are more than twice as fast, AT&s fiber internet service is only half as fast.
Comcast is rolling out FiOS Internet to 1.5 million homes and businesses in the US.
AT>amp speeds are only half the speeds of Verizon’s fiber network, which has 1.2 million homes.
The FCC said Verizon’s FiOS service is still only half that of AT<gs fiber.
AT+ltg is also rolling out a 1Gbps Internet service to households.
Time Warner Cable is rolling back plans to roll out its FiOS internet to 100 million homes over the next few years.
AT-ltg plans to provide broadband to 100% of its customers in 2019, but only about half that number will be able to get a connection at all.
Verizon FiOs internet service still only works on select Verizon wireless carriers and is not available in most areas of the country.
