Atlantic Broadband has launched its gigabit Internet service in Aiken, SC, and surrounding communities as part of its ongoing service enhancements in the area. The service is based on DOCSIS 3.1 and uses Cisco's (NASDAQ:CSCO) cBR-8 CCAP and ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) customer premises equipment (CPE).

Effective immediately, both GigaEdge (residential) and Pro GigaEdge (business) services are available for homes and businesses in Atlantic Broadband's growing South Carolina region which includes Aiken, as well areas it services in Graniteville, Jackson, New Ellenton, Wagener and Warrenville.

Atlantic Broadband's fastest speeds will increase from 250 Mbps downstream and 20 Mbps upstream to 1 Gbps/50 Mbps.

"We understand the economic benefits of ultra-fast service in today's digital age and our network is uniquely suited to enable these speeds on a wide scale," said Atlantic Broadband's Vice President and General Manager Debbie Eblen. "With the much-anticipated launch of GigaEdge and Pro GigaEdge, residential and business customers now have access to unbelievably fast Internet speeds for top-quality entertainment and business operations in the communities we serve."

Promotional pricing for Atlantic Broadband's gigabit service starts at $79.99 a month for new residential customers and $239.99 a month for new business customers with a 3-year agreement.

The company deployed DOCSIS 3.1-based gigabit service in the Miami Beach area last August.
