|Comcast Fiber steps up to compete with Google Fiber|
Comcast offers new product
The announcement that Google Fiber will be moving into the Atlanta market is already creating change for local consumers.
Comcast, for example, the area’s leading high speed internet provider, has announced plans to roll out 2 gig internet service to 1.5 million customers, starting this Spring.
That’s faster than the gigabit internet service Google Fiber plans to offer.
What's better about fiber?
Well, there may be many benefits, but here are just a few:
1.) Not as easy for hackers to intercept a signal
2.) More reliable point-to-point transmission
4.) Does not emit RF radiation
5.) Does not ask for you to give up school grounds to install its equipment.
6.) Not listed on anything published by the CDC in terms of possible Carcinogens.
7.) Does not lower property values
8.) Does not take advantage of children by seeking space on their playgrounds.
While we still have a lot to learn about how these products work, we are pleased that there are alternatives being brought to market that will challenge wireless for space in the conversation about what's safe and effective and allowed by local zoning.
