Comcast is increasing download speeds for some of its most popular Xfinity Internet packages for customers in Wellington as well and throughout the Palm Beach County.
About 85 percent of local Comcast Internet customers that subscribe to one of four speed tiers will have their download speeds upgraded, whether they purchase Xfinity Internet on a stand-alone basis or as part of a package.
Performance tier customers will have their speeds increase more than 60 percent from 60 Mbps (megabits per second) to 100 Mbps; Blast tier customers will have their speeds increase more than 30 percent from 150 Mbps to 200 Mbps; Extreme tier customers will have their speeds increase 20 percent from 250 Mbps to 300 Mbps; and Extreme Pro tier customers will have their speeds increase 50 percent from 400 Mbps to 600 Mbps.
These speed increases are the latest in a series of moves by Comcast to support growing consumer demand for super-fast, high-capacity Internet connections that can handle the explosion of connected devices that are powering the smart home.
Over the next several weeks, customers who lease a gateway will automatically receive the new speeds without having to reset their modems. Other customers who purchased their own modems should check online at http://mydeviceinfo.comcast.net to see if they need a new device that is capable of handling these faster speeds.
