PHOENIX, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cable ONE announced today that it will double downstream speeds for new and existing residential High Speed Internet customers in more than 90 percent of its markets beginning October 2015.
The company will double speeds on the following services: the Streaming 50Mbps plan will double to 100Mbps; the 75Mbps Premier plan will double to 150Mbps; and the 100Mbps Ultra Plan will double to 200Mbps.
