Comcast Corp. is facing a double threat from Google.
The West Coast search-engine giant is rolling out super-fast Internet through Google Fiber in select cities, including Atlanta, and pulling the regulatory levers in Washington for set-top box reform.
Responding to the Google Fiber buzz, Comcast recently announced own plans for its own lightning-fast gigabit
Interet service in certain metro areas, including Atlanta. The Philadelphia company also has been distributing
marketing flyers in the Atlanta area hyping its Xfinity Internet service as having the "fastest in-home WiFi" and the "X1 voice remote," according to published reports.
