Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) has launched a 75 Mbps high-speed Internet service in Dallas, where it is charging subscribers $90 monthly for the new tier.
The rollout of the "Ultimate 75 Mbps" tier, which was first reported Tuesday by DSL Reports, comes about two months after Time Warner Cable COO Rob Marcus said the MSO would increase its broadband speeds on its standard Internet tiers by 50 percent on cable systems nationwide.
AT&T (NYSE: T), which markets its U-verse TV and Internet service in Dallas, announced in November that it would eventually increase its download speeds to 75 Mbps. Time Warner Cable's speed upgrade could help it stave off competition from the telco.
