DENVER -- Comcast announced it is more than doubling the speed of its “Performance 25” Xfinity® Internet tier for Colorado Comcast customers at no additional cost.
Comcast customers can now enjoy download speeds of up to 55 Mbps on the rebranded “Performance Plus” tier, the company said.
The new speeds are effective immediately.
“We know every second counts for our customers,” said Rich Jennings, senior VP, Comcast Mountain West Region.
“We want to make sure all our customers have the fastest, most reliable speeds they need to stay ahead of any new online trends, connected to devices or to enjoy technological advancements. For this speed tier, customers can do more of what they love at no additional cost.”
Earlier this month, Comcast launched Xfinity xFi, a new and personalized Wi-Fi experience that provides a simple digital dashboard for customers to set up their home Wi-Fi network, find their password, see what devices are connected, troubleshoot issues, set parental controls and even pause Wi-Fi access on their home network during dinner or bedtime.
Comcast said xFi gives customers who have an xFi-compatible gateway unprecedented visibility and control over one of the most important technologies in their home.
In addition, most Xfinity Internet customers also have complimentary access to nearly 17 million Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide. Customers can simply select "xfinitywifi" from the list of available networks on their laptops or mobile devices and enter their Xfinity ID or email and password.
Hotspots can be found by either downloading the free Xfinity Wi-Fi App, available on iOS and Android devices, or by visiting the hotspot finder map on www.xfinity.com/wifi.
To receive the new Internet speeds, most customers need to re-set their modems by unplugging the equipment from the power outlet.
Comcast said it will notify any customers who need to upgrade their equipment. Those who currently have a modem from the company will not be charged to upgrade their equipment while those who own their own equipment will need to either purchase new equipment or lease a modem from Comcast to receive the increased speeds, the company said.
