RCN INCREASES CABLE MODEM SPEED TO 10 MBPS.
This is the third time in the past 18 months RCN has rewarded its customers by automatically upgrading their modem speeds at no additional cost. Customers with MegaModem Mach 7 RCN's 7 mbps service, will be automatically upgraded to MegaModem Mach 10. Customers with MegaModem Mach 5, RCN's 5 mbps service, will be automatically upgraded to MegaModem Mach 7 for free.
MegaModem Mach 10 is more than twice as fast as other cable modem services and more than six times faster than the leading DSL services.
"Thanks to our fiber-rich network, RCN continues to set the Internet speed standard. With MegaModem Mach 10 our customers can get music, videos, games and other data at rapid speeds unmatched by any other provider. This fantastic speed along with RCN interACTION services ensures that RCN customers have the best Internet experience possible," said Peter D. Aquino, RCN CEO.
RCN users can take full advantage of the Mach 10 speeds when using RCN's recently launched RCN interACTION Music. The service, which includes more than 1 million music tracks, allows RCN customers to download or burn CDs of high-quality music quickly and conveniently for 99 cents per track. Entire albums can be downloaded or saved to an MP3 player for just $9.99. In addition, customers will be able to watch their favorite music video as part of their subscription service. Music downloads will be conveniently charged to the customers' RCN bill, freeing them from having to share their credit card information with other services or receive multiple bills at their homes.
"RCN interACTION Music gets new music to our subscribers quickly and lets them take the songs they love with them on their MP3 player or on a CD," said Elad Nafshi, director of Internet and Phone Product Management. "Introducing these features is part of our goal to help our customers to better leverage their unrivalled Internet service."
