Mediacom, the cable and communications provider for much of Columbia and Jefferson City, is introducing high-speed,1-gigabit Internet speeds to their residential network in mid-Missouri. Mediacom’s previous top residential speed was 150 megabits per second, and with 1000 megabits in a gigabit, the new service should be noticeably quicker.

Mediacom will make the service available to customers in Columbia, Jefferson City and Holt’s Summit, making mid-Missouri the first area with 1-gig residential capacity. Phyllis Peters, Mediacom communications director, said the company has provided business and “enterprise” level customers with up to 16-gig speeds.

“1-gig broadband speeds seem to take hold in people’s imaginations,” Peters wrote, “yet to this point, the consumer who has really had a use for 1-gig speeds has been rare.”

The company’s main area facility is in Columbia, where Peters said Mediacom has made a “substantial financial investment” for the equipment necessary for 1-gig service. The company will make use of the area’s expanding fiber infrastructure, which the CBT wrote about in our April issue.

In a press release, Senior Vice President of Field Operations Ed Pardini said, “Our robust fiber network was designed with flexibility and scalability in mind, allowing us to cost-effectively turn Columbia, Jefferson City and Holts Summit into true gigabit communities.”

Mediacom made the service available on September 15.
