Comcast Cable Communications, LLC Key Developments

Comcast to Introduce DOCSIS 3.1-Powered Gigabit Internet Service in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, and Nashville

Comcast announced it plans to introduce the world’s first DOCSIS 3.1-powered gigabit Internet service to residential and business customers in Atlanta and Nashville in early 2016, with Chicago, Detroit, and Miami to follow in the second half of the year. The new network technology will, for the first time, make it possible for Xfinity and Comcast Business Internet customers to receive gigabit speeds over the communications lines that most customers already have in their homes and offices. While DOCSIS 3.1 modems have been tested extensively in labs and simulated network environments, the Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, and Nashville rollouts mark the first time these devices are being more widely connected to Internet users’ homes and offices using standard cable connections and the company’s existing cable plant. The consumer introduction of DOCSIS 3.1 marks a major step forward in the evolution of ultra-high-speed broadband. Because the new network technology allows consumers to receive gigabit Internet speeds over an existing connection, it has the potential to make ultra-fast speeds available more widely than fiber-to-the-home services, which typically require new construction and specialized installations. Once Comcast’s rollout of DOCSIS 3.1 is complete in a market, customers with gigabit-capable devices will be able to get the service by signing up for a new plan and just plugging in a new modem.

Sacramento Kings and Comcast Business Partner to Offer More Connected Indoor Sports and Entertainment Venue

Sacramento Kings announced that Golden 1 Center will offer the most connected indoor sports and entertainment venue as the result of a new multi-year agreement with Comcast Corporation. Comcast Business, the business services unit of Comcast, will deliver a connectivity platform with unparalleled bandwidth by installing fully redundant transport facilities and two 100 gigabit Ethernet dedicated Internet circuits. The services will provide the back end infrastructure enabling the team to provide free Wi-Fi for fans, power the Kings mobile app, and supply cloud-based voice and unified communications services for team members at the arena and at the team’s corporate offices. As a result, the Internet connection at Golden 1 Center, as well as the public plaza and Downtown Commons (DOCO), will be over 17,000 times faster than the average home Internet connection, with the ability to handle more than 225,000 Instagram photo posts per second. In addition, Comcast Business will provide the in-house video feed to all television monitors throughout Golden 1 Center, allowing patrons to access ancillary programming while attending concerts and other events at the arena. The agreement continues an existing partnership that includes a long-term broadcast partnership with Comcast SportsNet California.

Attorney General Harris Announces $25.95 Million Settlement with Comcast Cable Communications LLC over Hazardous Waste Disposal and Privacy Violations

Attorney General Kamala D. Harris and Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O'Malley announced a settlement with Comcast Cable Communications LLC ("Comcast") to resolve allegations that Comcast both unlawfully disposed of hazardous waste and discarded records without first omitting or redacting private customer information. As part of the settlement, Comcast will pay a total of $25.95 million. The civil enforcement action and proposed settlement against Comcast were filed in Alameda County Superior Court by Attorney General Harris and District Attorney O'Malley. The settlement requires court approval before it becomes final. If approved by the court, under the final judgment, Comcast must pay $19.85 million in civil penalties and costs. An additional $3 million will fund projects furthering environmental and consumer protection and enforcement in California. Comcast will also be providing CalRecycle with $2.25 million in airtime over a four-year period and $150,000 to develop and produce public service announcements that educate the public on the proper handling and disposal of hazardous waste they might generate, including electronics. Finally, Comcast will spend a minimum of $700,000 to enhance its environmental compliance and will be prohibited from violating these laws in the future, under the terms of a permanent injunction. Upon notice of the investigation, Comcast agreed to cooperate and, at the request of the Attorney General and the Alameda County DA, took interim steps to improve its hazardous and universal waste management compliance programs. As part of the settlement, Comcast has committed to fund multiple measures over the next five years to enhance its environmental compliance. Comcast will also be required to hire an independent auditor to conduct three audits of its environmental and customer privacy compliance over the next five years. There are ten Comcast facilities in Alameda County and all ten facilities are subject to the terms of the settlement.
