Comcast doubles internet speeds in California

How often do you get something you can use for free? Comcast has announced they are doubling the speeds of two XFINITY internet service plans at no additional charge to customers. The Blast! plan is increasing from 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps download (10 Mbps upstream), while the Extreme 50 plan is increasing from 50 Mbps to 105 Mbps download (20 Mbps upstream). If you’re subscribed to the XFINITY Performance plan, you won’t be left in the cold as Comcast has initiated an increase in speed from 15 Mbps to 20 or 25 Mbps download (4 or 5 Mbps upstream).

Comcast notes that Blast! subscribers with 1.1 or 2.0 cable modems will need to exchange them for 3.0 modems to see the increased internet speed.

The upgraded internet service will improve subscribers’ video streaming experience especially with HD content, as well as other activities such as Skyping, chatting, and playing video games online.

To experience the quicker internet speeds you have to restart your modem.

Unfortunately residents of Arbuckle, Maxwell, Williams, Auburn Lake Trails, Isleton, Tower Park and Rio Vista are not going to see the upgrade as of yet. Comcast markets in the Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley Area are slated to get the upgrade this summer.
