Cable operator Atlantic Broadband says it will spend $6.3 million to upgrade its infrastructure in the Miami area. The multi-year "FastForward Miami" project will include the deployment of additional fiber-optic cable to increase network capacity and redundancy, improve reliability, and reduce time to repair.

Phase 1 of the project, focused on the southern and northern portions of the system, began early this year and is expected to finish before the end of August. Phase 2 will begin in the fall of 2016.

FastForward Miami will beef up the operator's ability to deliver services to residents and businesses in Miami Beach as well as such surrounding areas as Aventura, Bal Harbour, Bay Harbor Islands, Golden Beach, North Bay Village, Pinecrest, South Miami, Sunny Isles Beach, Surfside, plus Brickell, the Biscayne corridor, and downtown Miami.

  • Doubling of top internet speeds to 250 Mbps, with gigabit internet service on the horizon
  • Another 58 Standard Definition (SD) and/or High Definition (HD) channels, which would bring the total channel count to more 400
  • Significantly more Spanish language and international channels
  • Enhanced digital picture quality and sound
  • Availability of a new on-screen guide.
