Time Warner Cable, which provides service to more than 100,000 customers in Lexington, announced Thursday that it was upgrading its services to include faster Internet speeds and an expanded On Demand library.
Speed will increase for all residential Internet plans, with some customers getting an increase that’s as much as six times faster, a news release stated. Those on the standard plan, previously as much as 15 Mbps, will receive as much as 50 Mbps, more than three times faster.
Some customers will need to switch modems to receive the higher speeds. Customers may switch their modems at no cost to access the higher speeds.
Enhanced DVR service offered by Time Warner already has let customers record as many as six programs and save 150 hours of high-definition programming on its one-terabyte hard drive, the news release said. That is twice the storage of the largest previous model.
“We’re reinventing the TWC experience,” spokesman Mike Hogan said.
The faster Internet is provided “for basically free. ... You’re not going to see anything increase in your monthly plan price. And you can record more and save more,” Hogan said.
