Comcast Increases Xfinity Internet Speeds in Northwest & Houston

Comcast announced it has increased speeds for its highest-residential speed tier for Xfinity Internet – Gigabit Pro – providing an extra boost for customers in Houston, across Oregon and southwestern Washington.

Beginning this month, Gigabit Pro speeds will increase from 2 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) upload and download speeds to 3 Gbps symmetrical speeds nationwide. Xfinity is a large national Gigabit network, delivering speeds faster than a Gig. Gigabit Pro uses enterprise-grade, fiber-based ethernet technology to make it possible for Xfinity Internet customers to receive symmetrical multi-gigabit speeds so you can stream or game in 4K in multiple rooms in your home.

“Faster speeds will give Xfinity customers added capacity to power all their connected devices, in addition to the cybersecurity protection, in-home WiFi controls, and wall-to-wall WiFi coverage Xfinity already provides customers,” said Demian Voiles, vice president of Sales and Marketing, Comcast Houston Region.

In addition to delivering the fastest speeds, Comcast provides value to Xfinity Internet customers through:

  • Superior WiFi coverage – WiFi coverage with the xFi Advanced Gateway that is WiFi 6-capable and can deliver speeds faster than a gig, and xFi Pods, which together creates a mesh network that reaches every corner of the home.
  • Control connected devices – Using the Xfinity app, customers who lease an xFi Gateway have total control of their home network; manage device access, set parental controls, and pause WiFi.
  • Advanced cybersecurity protection – xFi Advanced Security helps to protect all connected devices at the gateway level from malware and other cyber security threats.
  • 4K streaming device with voice search – Xfinity Flex, a 4K streaming device with an award-winning voice remote to seamlessly watch and search for content from the Xfinity Stream app, Peacock, Netflix, Hulu, Prime, and other popular streaming services.

“At Comcast we understand that high speed Internet connectivity is always top of mind for students, families and others who are still navigating the pandemic,” said Matt Quantz, vice president of Xfinity Residential Marketing for Comcast in Oregon/SW Washington. “Our commitment to continuous Internet innovation – including speed increases and capacity and reliability enhancements – continues to make our customers’ connectivity experience better than it has ever been before.”

During the last decade, Comcast has invested nearly $30 billion to build an expansive, fiber-dense network that carries an immense amount of traffic and has demonstrated extraordinary performance throughout the pandemic. Comcast has doubled network capacity every 2.5 years to stay ahead of demand and remains committed to investing in increased Internet connectivity.
