Comcast today announced it is not only increasing the speeds of its Xfinity Internet service packages for existing customers in the Twin Cities area at no additional cost, but is also now offering a new 1-Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) service to residential and business customers across the company’s entire Twin Cities service area.
“In today’s fast-moving, always-on world, quickly connecting to the internet is more important than ever,” said J.D. Keller, regional vice president, Comcast Twin Cities. “These speed increases, along with our 1-Gig service rollout, reflect our ongoing commitment to offer the fastest speeds to our customers and deliver a great experience anytime, anywhere.”
Comcast’s 1-Gigabit residential internet service is among the fastest and most widely available in the Twin Cities region. New and current Twin Cities customers can visit Xfinity.com/gig to learn about the new service and request additional information.
The company’s new 1-Gigabit internet service will use DOCSIS 3.1 technology to deliver the speeds over the existing communications lines that are already in most people’s homes. To enjoy the service, all customers need to do is install a new DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem.
In addition to increasing and adding new speeds, Comcast continues to offer the fastest in-home Wi-Fi gateway, and most Xfinity Internet customers can enjoy complimentary access to more than 18 million Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide by selecting “xfinitywifi” from the list of available networks on their laptops or mobile devices and entering their Xfinity ID or email and password. Hotspots can be found by either downloading the Xfinity Wi-Fi App, available for free on iOS and Android devices, or by visiting the hotspot finder map on www.xfinity.com/wifi.
