1-gig Internet coming to Boston area

Meantime, Google acquired Webpass, a San Francisco company that uses wireless technology instead of cables to deliver high-speed Internet services to businesses and apartment buildings.

Brett Sappington, senior director of research at Parks Associates in Dallas, said RCN’s new service could speed the rollout of competing offerings from Boston’s other broadband providers, Comcast Corp. and Verizon Communications Inc.

“Where we see it emerging in markets we’ll often see competitors follow, because that’s a portion of their business they can’t afford to give up,” said Sappington. “The profit margins are so high.”

Verizon Communications offers speeds as high as 750 megabits for $150 per month.
