The Internet isn't used to simply surf the Web and send email anymore. It now plays a key role in how consumers experience entertainment and stay connected to the world around them — from streaming TV shows, movies and music, to playing video games, sharing photos and video chatting with friends and family. And we know more and more consumers are using wireless devices in their home to do this. It's with this in mind that I'm pleased to announce the launch of our newest Xfinity Wireless Gateway, which delivers the fastest in-home WiFi to power the growing numbers of connected devices in our customer's homes.

To get these results, we worked with Allion Test Labs to conduct a competitive analysis of our Xfinity Wireless Gateway alongside the popular Wireless Gateways offered by Verizon and AT&T. Like all WiFi solutions, home network performance is going to decrease the further the connected device gets from the wireless router. But as the chart below suggests, our wireless gateway outperformed their devices in both speed and range and confirmed our customers get the fastest in-home WiFi speeds and best performance from their connected devices.


In addition to offering the fastest in-home WiFi, we're also announcing the availability of our Extreme 305 speed tier, which reaffirms our commitment to providing customers with the nation's fastest Internet. Extreme 305 is a new ultra-fast speed tier that offers the most-advanced digital homes download speeds of up to 305 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 65 Mbps. It's currently being offered across most of our Northeast division, which includes major markets such as Boston, Hartford, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Wilmington, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Richmond, and New Jersey.
