Comcast increases internet speeds in Northeast

xfinity-logo-300pxComcast has increased internet speeds for Xfinity customers in their Northeast markets, bumping up both Blast and Extreme tiers to 105 Mbps and 150 Mbps, respectively. The increase for Xfinity Internet Blast subscribers more than doubles the speed from the previous maximum of 50 Mbps. For Xfinity Extreme customers, the improvement increases internet speeds by 50%, from 105 Mbps to 150 Mbps.

Comcast markets receiving the upgrades include 14 Northeastern states ranging from Maine through Virginia and the District of Columbia.

The improvements in bandwidth come at no additional charge to Xfinity customers. Comcast says this is the 13th time internet speed has been improved in the past 12 years.

“There is a barrage of devices coming online every day and we are staying ahead of demand through faster speeds and best-in-class wireless gateways,” said Marcien Jenckes, Executive Vice President of Consumer Services for Comcast Cable.

To take advantage of the improved bandwidth customers should restart their modems. Comcast will upgrade modems that are leased at no charge. Customers who have their own modems may need to update them themselves. A list of approved modems can be found on the Comcast device info webpage.
