When Comcast and other companies go dark, you can still use the Internet
Washington DC — Comcast announced Thursday that it will begin rolling out Internet service to nearly 2 million customers in the District and across the country.
Comcast announced it would begin offering Internet access to customers on March 11, with some exceptions.
Comcast announced that it would start rolling out its Internet service in March to customers in Baltimore, Baltimore County, and all other areas in the Baltimore Metropolitan area, starting with Baltimore.
The company also said it will roll out the service to Baltimore City and its surrounding areas.
Comcast said it would also offer Internet service throughout the state and to all other customers in Washington DC.
The company’s announcement comes as other large Internet providers have announced they will no longer offer Internet services in the city or elsewhere.
The announcement comes days after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it was going to block Comcast’s proposed $45 billion merger with Time Warner Cable.
The move was aimed at slowing the merger’s progress.
In a blog post, Comcast said the service will provide consumers with the same high-speed Internet speeds they get on the Internet today.
“The Internet has changed, and it’s time to embrace the new technology,” the company wrote.
Computers announcement comes a week after the FCC announced it is going to strike down a deal that would have allowed the company to purchase NBCUniversal, a cable company it owned.
The FCC said in its ruling that the merger would “prevent competition” and that the deal would have created “unnecessary risks” for consumers.
