Time Warner cable has announced a six-fold boost in broadband bandwidth to customers in the areas of Louisville and Jeffersonville, Ohio. Enter TWC Maxx, with which the company is “essentially reinventing the TWC experience”, according to area VP Mark Dunford.

Speaking at a news conference, Dunford said that boosted TWC internet speed would be up to six times faster than what customers have been getting until now, and that this will “dramatically improve the TV product and set a high bar in our industry for differentiated, exceptional customer service.”

Key components of the transformation according to the news release are:

  • Speed increases on residential TWC internet plans, with increases of depending on the current level of internet service they subscribe to. If you have Standard, which was formerly up to 15 Mbps, it is now going to be 50 Mbps.
  • Extreme users will see their up to 30 Mbps speed go up to 200 Mbps. Meanwhile, customers getting ultimate will see their 50 Mbps speed cap go up to 300 Mbps. No additional charges will be brought to their monthly plan.
  • The TV experience has a new bunch of video features carrying a wider On-Demand library with over 30,000 titles. Louisville customers are already getting Enhanced DVR, using which it is possible to record up to six different programs at a time, and save 150 hours of HD programming on 1 TB hard drive.

Meanwhile, Google Fiber is proceeding with the assessment of whether its plan to offer 1-gigabyte internet speed in Louisville will work. Finer, as the name implies, uses fiber optics to bring internet to homes and offices.

Officials at the company had announced last fall that they would place Louisville among the head of the class of communities seeking network provision. Ultra-fast Internet service is one of the main perks sought by businesses these days.

Time Warner Cable has agreed to a merger with the Charter Communications, a deal which could spawn a cable and internet company almost as large as Comcast. Time Warner spokesman Michael Hogan has stated that TWC Maxx upgrades will go through as planned, and speaking on plans after if the merger is realized, he said that Charter will take over operations. This would also include all local Time Warner facilities and employment.
