Comcast promises to outperform Google, Verizon Fios in select markets (starting with Atlanta)
CNN Connect reports that Comcast plans a superfast cable Internet that will be faster than Google’s experimental service in some cities, or Verion FIOS – at two gigabits per second, story here.
The first city to get such a service is Atlanta. Maybe the Braves will get out of their funk at the same time (with a new stadium soon).
Netflix seems to have one of the fastest deliveries right now. But many websites are a long way from delivering content at speeds to take advantage of it.
Right now, in my own experience, on Xfinity, Netflix runs faster (with fewer or no stops) than Amazon Prime or YouTube.
