Comcast beefs up broadband services in face of competition / Business / Technology / Comcast beefs up broadband services in face of competition: "Comcast also launched a premium $58-a-month home broadband service that allows up to five computers in a home to share a 4-megabit broadband connection. The service uses a single cable modem box that offers both wireless and Ethernet cable connections for computers in the home and provides a security 'firewall' and a router to network together the home computers.
To get the 3-megabit service, all existing Comcast customers have to do is unplug the power cord from their cable modem, wait 60 seconds, and plug it back in, which activates the higher speed. Most of Comcast's 4.8 million customers nationally had been upgraded to the faster service prior to yesterday's moves in New England, and the company expects to complete the switch by the end of next month across all its franchises."
