TWC kicks off Maxx upgrades in Dallas, also rolls out Wi-Fi

Seeing improvements to its residential subscriber base with the rollout of its DOCSIS 3.0-enabled "Maxx" Internet and video service, Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) announced that initial deployment of the upgrade to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area has begun.

The MSO says it started deployment of TWC Maxx this week. The upgrade boosts broadband speeds across tiers without additional customer fees: 15 Mbps to 50 Mbps; 30 Mbps to 200 Mbps and 100 Mbps to 300 Mbps.

Maxx subscribers also get an Arris-made DVR with six tuners and 1 terabyte of storage capacity.

TWC gained 54,000 residential customers in the fourth quarter, which it partly attributed to successful rollouts of TWC Maxx in New York and Los Angeles.

 "We will boost Internet speeds for customers up to six times faster, add to Dallas' robust TWC WiFi, dramatically improve the TV product and set a high bar in our industry for differentiated, exceptional customer service," said Ike Wells, TWC's regional VP of operations for Texas, in a statement.
