RCN Launches 20 Mbps Cable Modem Service

RCN launched its new MegaModem Mach 20 service in Falls Church, Virginia, and Woburn, Massachusetts, delivering downstream data at up to 20 Mbps an up to 2 Mbps upstream to residential subscribers.

RCN's subscribers can receive its Unlimited Local Phone with calling features, Full Basic Cable TV and 20 Megabits per second service bundle for $129.99.

"While Verizon's new FIOS service may have a higher data speed, you pay more but get less," explained Tim Dunne, RCN Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. "The differentiator is that MegaModem Mach 20 comes bundled with our outstanding Cable TV programming and high-quality telephone service and is priced below what Verizon charges only for its high-speed data service."
