XFINITY Internet: The Fastest Broadband Speeds to the Most American Homes

Our fiber-based network is one of the largest in the country, and we keep making our broadband service faster. In fact, over the last nine years, Comcast has boosted its available broadband speed seven times, from 1.5 Mbps then to today’s incredibly fast 305 Mbps. We never stop working to meet our customers’ need for speed. Our engineers at Comcast Labs continue to drive new advancements, including some of the fastest Internet speeds ever at up to 1 Gigabit per second.

Our customers want to do more and more with their high-speed connection — from streaming TV, film and music, to playing video games and chatting online with friends and family, to archiving their digital files in the cloud, and on and on. Consider this: Comcast has one of the most sophisticated networks in the world that supports the delivery of over 136 million emails and 142 million phone calls on an average day.

To make sure that our customers get the benefits of high speed on all the Internet-connected devices in their homes, we also offer the fastest in-home wireless routers. Our Xfinity Wireless Gateway is a next-generation router that simultaneously connects dozens of wireless devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, Internet-connected TVs, Xboxes and gaming consoles. When the whole family is online, the Xfinity Wireless Gateway helps to ensure that everyone has the best experience across all of their devices.

Comcast’s investment in broadband goes beyond in-home Internet service. We are also investing in wireless services for the convenience of Xfinity Internet customers on the go. Our customers have access to tens of thousands of wireless hotspots all over the chttp://www.comcast.com/wifi/default.htm?SCRedirect=trueountry — in train stations, shopping districts, malls, parks, boardwalks and many other places you are likely to be.
