Comcast.logoDENVER/COLORADO SPRINGS - Comcast announced it has increased Internet speeds for its residential customers in Colorado Springs and the Denver metro area.

The company said it increased download speeds of three service tiers. The "Performance" tier now offers speeds of 50 Mbps, up from 25 Mbps. The "Blast" tier has been increased from 50 Mbps to 105 Mbps and the "Extreme 105" tier has been bumped to 150 Mbps.

All of the faster speeds come at no additional cost to the customer, Comcast said.

"We want our customers to have a great online experience whether they're streaming video, posting photos or just checking email," said Eric Schaefer, Comcast's senior VP and GM for data and communications services.

"The speed of your Internet service is an important contributing factor to that experience, and nationally we've increased our Internet speeds 13 times in the last 12 years."

For most Comcast customers, the speed increases will go into effect automatically. Comcast said it will notify customers who may need to upgrade their hardware to receive the faster speeds.
