Time Warner Cable Introduces 75Mbps Service in Dallas Metroplex

Phillip Dampier January 15, 2013 Broadband Speed, Competition, Time Warner Cable/Spectrum 1 Comment

twcTime Warner Cable has soft-launched a new Ultimate speed tier offering 75/5Mbps service in the Dallas metro area, first to Signature Home customers promised free upgrades to the new speed.

That is 25Mbps faster than the company’s usual top speed, for $10 more than Ultimate 50 customers pay.

Dallas customers report Time Warner is offering some promotional pricing on speed upgrades, charging $79.99 for 50/5Mbps service, $89.99 for 75/5Mbps, and 30/5Mbps for $59.99. These prices are good for one year. Existing customers who cajole customer service about committing to a speed upgrade in return for a better price are achieving some success.

“We do have a 75Mbps tier in Dallas and a 100Mbps tier in Kansas City, both of which are part of our larger announcement on speed increases,” Time Warner Cable’s Alex Dudley tells Broadband Reports. “As far as those two tiers are concerned, we don’t have anything else to announce, though I think it is fair to say that we have been making an effort to increase speeds and will continue to do so in the future.”

In other words, expect a gradual rollout of speeds greater than 50Mbps in other cities across Time Warner’s footprint, particularly in areas where competitors cut into Time Warner’s market share.

Upstream speeds continue to be no greater than 5Mbps across all of Time Warner’s DOCSIS 3 speed tiers.

AT&T provides limited U-verse competition in the region, but their speeds are not competitive with Time Warner’s latest speed upgrades.

    Believe it or not At&t has a large amount of VRAD’s in the Dallas area. I know in my city (Arlington Texas) there VRAD’s serving almost every neighborhood in the city. Well TWC does compete with Uverse in Dallas proper and the Arlington area and some of the smaller cities. Verizon Fios is available in portions of TWC’s footprint in North Texas but the two biggest cities Arlington and Dallas that TWC serves in North Texas only have At&t Uverse. The population in the metro with Uverse competition with TWC is over 1.5 Million to 2 Million people in the two largest cities alone.
