COVID-19 Network Update

Comcast operates the largest residential Internet network in the U.S. – from the fiber that stretches across the country to the WiFi networks that keep our homes and devices connected.
We've seen an unprecedented shift in network usage, but it’s within the capability of our network; and we continue to deliver the speeds and support the capacity our customers need while they’re working, learning, and connecting from home.
Overall network usage has risen since COVID-19, and we are seeing traffic plateau in most places including early work-from-home markets like Seattle and California.


We know that connectivity matters right now more than ever, and people across the country are relying on us to keep them connected to work, school, and their families as they navigate these uncertain times. Our technology and engineering teams will continue to work tirelessly to support our network operations 24/7 to ensure network performance and reliability. For more information on what we are doing to help keep everyone connected, click here.
