[Updated] Bermuda CableVision today [Oct 31] introduced two new Broadband Link Internet services, with speeds of up to 15 Mb and 25 Mb, respectively. Both are available island-wide and are the fastest speeds offered to date by Bermuda CableVision.
“Power users, families in connected homes with numerous devices, geeks, gamers and anyone who craves more speed, will appreciate these new Broadband Link services,” says Terry Roberson, General Manager of Bermuda CableVision.
“These speeds enable users to do all the things they enjoy online, even if the entire household is engaged in activity at the same time. Whether it’s downloading movies and music, exchanging photos and video, using online applications, streaming video or navigating the web at lightning speed, it’s a new day in Bermuda and we’re excited to be a part of it!”
Jake Simon, Bermuda CableVisions’s Chief Technology Officer, adds: “This is a milestone for us and it is very good news for an important group of our customers. However, CableVision is in a position to offer even faster broadband speeds. With the deployment of our recent technology upgrades, we have been testing – and obtaining – speeds in excess of 150 Mb over high-speed cable modems.”
Bermuda CableVision’s new Broadband Link high-speed Internet services are being offered over the company’s advanced, fibre-based network. Customers are invited to contact their local ISP regarding their pricing and service offerings. The new 15 and 25 high-speed services require the use of a new CISCO DOCSIS 3.0 modem, which can be purchased from Bermuda CableVision at an affordable price, and in some instances subscribers may need to upgrade their home router for these higher speeds.
We are awaiting clarification on matters including launch date, pricing and more – and will update as able.
Update 11.35am: CableVision said the prices are $90 and $140 respectively, and confirmed it is available today.
Update 12.54pm: We are checking with the ISPs about whether they will be offering the 15/25MB and Northrock has replied saying they are not offering it yet, however it should be available in the next week or so.
