TWC offers Gigabit Cable Network Plan for Los Angeles delivered in 2016
Time Warner Cable (TWC) who operate the existing cable network cross Los Angeles and neighboring counties are proposing to offer a Gigabit service over their existing Hybrid Fibre Coax network in LA with an upgrade to the new DOCSIS 3.1 cable network standard. The TWC proposal is offered as a TWC submission to the City of Los Angeles RFI for a city-wide 1 Gigabit/s broadband network. TWC is the third largest broadband operator in the USA by subscribers and already offers broadband speeds up to 300 Mbit/s over its cable network. According to TWC the 1 Gigabit/s cable network can be in service by 2016, faster than any alternative approach!
TWC also emphasises the tangible operational benefit to LA residents of being able to "deliver those types of speeds without having to dig up streets and dig up people's yards" and being able to provide these speeds across the entire Los Angeles area as early as 2016.
