Comcast is offering a new Gigabit internet service to residential customers.

Comcast Tuesday announced it has launched a new internet service in the Carlisle area that delivers speeds up to 1 Gigabit-per-second to residential customers.

The company said these speeds will be among the fastest and most widely available, and it will include access to Comcast’s Wi-Fi network of more than 18 million hotspots.

The new speed is available throughout Comcast’s service areas, including Carlisle Borough, Newville, Mount Holly Springs and the townships of Silver Spring, Monroe, Lower Mifflin, North Newton, North Middleton, South Middleton, Dickinson, West Pennsboro, Penn, Lower Frankford and South Newton.

In these areas, the cost is $104.95 a month without a contract, or the promotional price of $79.99 a month for 12 months.

The company’s new service will deliver speeds over the existing communication lines that are already in most homes, Comcast said. The only thing customers are likely to need is a new DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem.

“With the launch of our 1 Gigabit residential service, adding to the best in-home Wi-Fi experience and our recent launch of Xfinity xFi, we continue to deliver an unparalleled Internet experience for our customers in terms of speed, control and reliability,” said Christine Whitaker, senior vice president of Comcast’s Keystone Region. “We know consumers need an Internet provider that can deliver speed, and we have been on a pace of doubling our network capacity every 18 to 24 months, ensuring that we stay well ahead of demand.”
