Comcast is more than doubling the speed of its “Performance 25”Xfinity® Internet tier for existing customers in the Southern Arizona area at no additional cost. The speed increase provides greater value and faster speeds to stream, chat and connect on multiple devices.
Effective immediately, customers can now enjoy download speeds of up to 55 Mbps on the rebranded “Performance Plus” tier. To receive the new internet speeds, most customers only need to re-set their modems by unplugging the equipment from the power outlet.
Comcast 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.
“Our goal is to create the best possible online experience for our customers,” said Chris Dunkeson, vice president of technical operations, Comcast’s Arizona/New Mexico market. “The increase in speed means faster streaming, and the ability to enjoy more devices online at the same time, addressing the increasing demands in today’s homes.”
To further enhance the internet experience, Xfinity Internet customers can take advantage of the recently 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. Customers also have complimentary access to nearly 17 million Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide. 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.
