The nation’s eighth-largest cable operator, Atlantic Broadband, announced that it has launched Gigabit internet service and TiVo’s new Unified Entertainment System in Derry, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas, including the towns of McClure and Lewistown.

The operator notes that the launch of Gigabit speeds—or 1,000 megabits per second—is occurring at a time when homes and workplaces increasingly require internet with the capacity and performance to power the growing number of devices and applications customers rely on every day, including work from home and distance learning.

The average internet download speed over fixed broadband in the U.S. is about 86 Mbps, according to Ookla’s Q2 2020 report. Gigabit internet delivers speeds more than 10 times faster than traditional offerings, notes Atlantic Broadband.

“Gigabit’s high-performance speeds, made possible through robust DOCSIS 3.1 technology, power the most data-intensive applications so that home and business users can surf, stream, download and work online simultaneously. Atlantic Broadband is dedicated to providing the latest powerful Gigabit broadband internet to homes and businesses in our service areas,” said Heather McCallion, Vice President of Products & Programming. “We are proud to expand the availability of Gigabit in our communities, enabling them to access speeds that will transform the online experience for businesses and homes.”

With Atlantic Broadband's launch of TiVo, customers in Derry and surrounding areas will have access to a new entertainment platform featuring a modern user interface with intuitive navigation, personalized viewing recommendations and an easy-to-use voice remote to provide fast, highly accurate results of searched-for programs. Content also is searchable across multiple video sources, including live TV, DVR recordings, Video On Demand and streaming apps. The new TiVo Entertainment System also allows customers to access content on multiple screens across TVs, smartphones, tablets and more, both in-home and on-the-go.
