Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) is expanding its DOCSIS 3.1-based gigabit Internet footprint in Florida. The service, available to both residential and business customers, is now available across the majority of the company's service area in Florida.

The service launched today in the Orlando area, southwest Florida, Tallahassee, West Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast. In February, it launched in Lake County, Panama City and Sarasota. Comcast first introduced its 1 Gigabit Internet service using DOCSIS 3.1 technology in the Jacksonville and Miami areas in 2017.

"Comcast is now delivering gigabit speeds across much of Florida over a network that already serves thousands of homes and businesses," said Javier Garcia, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Comcast's Florida Region. "As consumers and small businesses across the state continue to rely even more heavily on the Internet, we have the advanced technology in place to meet this growing demand."

Business Internet 1 Gig and Business Internet 500 speed tiers are also now available to business customers in Florida.

The price for residential gigabit service is $139.95 a month without a term contract. Bundled product pricing is also available. Customers taking the new service will need a DOCSIS 3.1-capable modem.
