Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC) is participating in the city of Los Angeles' request for information (RFI) process for the development of a communitywide broadband network to deliver gigabit-capable, affordable broadband connections to residences, businesses and city government.

In January, TWC announced infrastructure improvements to its existing HFC networks in LA, New York and other markets in a project dubbed TWC Maxx. The company says those upgrades, plus DOCSIS 3.1 technology that's expected to ready for initial pilots next year, will enable it to deliver gigabit speeds in LA.

"As the new standard is certified and equipment manufacturers deliver new hardware and modems, our Los Angeles system will be prepared to begin deployment of gigabit speeds to consumers," said Peter Stern, executive vice president and chief strategy, people and corporate development officer at TWC. "We can quickly adopt the new DOCSIS 3.1 standards and deliver gigabit speeds for consumers across our entire Los Angeles footprint, not just select neighborhoods and communities."

TWC's response to the RFI includes:

  • Information on TWC Maxx, which includes the current network upgrades across the LA region, expected to be completed in LA by the end of the year
  • Progress on the company's migration to all-digital in Los Angeles
  • Catalog of all TWC's current fiber-based broadband and Ethernet solutions that already serve businesses as well as government and academic facilities with multi-gigabit speed connections
  • Details on TWC's continuing deployment of TWC WiFi public hotspots in the city
