Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) announced recently plans to expand its Gig-speed network to cover corporate companies across the western parts of the United States including the California, Houston, Kansa, Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, Missouri, and Utah. The company’s Business Internet 1 Gig and the Business Internet 500 speed tiers will be made available to all business customers in the regions through the company’s existing network without the company incurring extra costs of constructing new network facilities.
The rollouts for the new speeds will commence in November and will continue through to mid-December until all the regions within Florida are covered. Comcast is well-known for its fast and reliable internet service and in-home Wi-Fi speeds across the US but the company is still advancing its provisions to serve its customers better.
According to Amy Smith, senior vice president for Comcast’s Florida Region, boosting the internet speeds, developing fastest Wi-Fi, and fiber networks and other innovative services such as xFi and Xfinity Gigabits are all new ways in which Comcast is delivering value to its customers and enhancing its online experience.
To obtain the latest speeds, users are required to restart their modems manually or through Xfinity My Account app. The firm will also notify its customers and provide useful instructions once the changes take effect in their respective regions. For the last 16 years, Comcast has increased its Internet speeds 17 times.
Other Comcast’s major changes include the growing internet and wireless presence after the launch of Xfinity Mobile which merges the country’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network with the WI-FI network. The network is now available to its Xfinity Internet users and covers five lines with unlimited countrywide call and text, free line access, and 100 MBs shared data.
Comcast plans to enhance its speed internet provision to cover; an expansion of its countrywide Wi-FI network, double its network capacity within a period of 18-24 months, launch a xFi platform that will enable users to personalize their Wi-Fi experience and introduce 2 gigabit and 1 gigabit-per-second home internet services.
