I Can Get More Power. Comcast Increases Download Speeds.

Good news everyone. Comcast Increases Download Speed.

Press Release: Comcast Increases Internet Speeds for 13th Time in 12 Years:
Comcast today announced it has increased the speeds of two of its Xfinity Internet tiers in the Northeast, at no additional cost to customers. The increase marks the 13th time in the past 12 years that Comcast has increased its speeds...

In the Northeast, the Xfinity Internet Blast tier now offers speeds of up to 105 Mbps (formerly 50 Mbps), and the Xfinity Extreme 105 tier offers speeds up to 150 Mbps (formerly 105 Mbps). This is the second time in two years that Comcast has doubled its Blast tier.

The new speed tiers will be available to customers in the vast majority of Comcast’s Northeast Division, which includes 14 Northeastern states from Maine through Virginia and the District of Columbia. To get access, most customers will just re-start their modems. Some customers may need to upgrade their modems to receive the increased speeds.

I just ran Speedtest and here are my speeds.




Restart your modems. ;-)
