Wilmington, N.C. (November 16, 2011) – Time Warner Cable today announced plans to launch Time Warner Cable Wideband Internet for both residential and business customers in its coastal operations including the Wilmington, Jacksonville and Morehead City areas. The new service is expected to be available by early 2012.

“Time Warner Cable’s Wideband Internet is our most powerful Internet product for customers and more than three times faster than current Internet speeds,” said Christine Whitaker, area vice president of operations, Eastern North Carolina. “Time Warner Cable is committed to delivering products that meet the high-speed data needs of our business customers and our residential customers who want the fastest speeds at home for their computers, tablets, smartphones and game consoles.”

Wideband, the next generation of Internet technology, produces speeds of up to 50 Mbps downstream and 5 Mbps upstream. Today, the fastest residential speeds available are 10 Mbps/512 Kbps.

“Customers can leverage this new technology to enhance the speed of multi-device connectivity,” added Whitaker. “For example, a multi-user customer could download files, stream a TV show and upload photos within seconds on different devices at the same time. We are empowering our customers with pure online power to save time and boost productivity when multitasking with multiple devices.”

Included with Wideband Internet is wireless capability, with convenient mobility throughout the home and the flexibility to utilize up to five devices simultaneously.
