Subscribers to Comcast’s high-speed internet service in Colorado will get up to 50 Mbps download speed with their new Extreme 50 package. Ultra, a lower priced internet package, will offer up to 22 Mbps.
Comcast says the Extreme 50 service will allow downloads of HD movies in about 16 minutes, and standard-def movies in about 5 minutes, based on 6GB and 2GB file sizes respectively.
The improved internet service is currently available to residents in Southern Colorado, Northern Colorado and about half of the Denver Metro Area. The rest of Denver will get the new services in October, while Mountain Communities will get the services later this year.
Here’s a breakdown of the tier packages:
- Extreme 50, offering up to 50 Mbps of downstream speed and up to 10 Mbps of upstream speed at $99.95/month.
- Ultra, offering up to 22 Mbps of downstream speed and up to 5 Mbps of upstream speed at $62.95/month.
- Performance tier customers will benefit from doubled downstream and upstream speeds, offering up to 12 Mbps and 2 Mbps, respectively.
- Performance Plus customers will be upgraded to Comcast’s Blast! tier, which will double their download speeds to up to 16 Mbps and provide up to 2 Mbps of upload speed.
