Comcast Corporation has recently announced that they are increasing speeds of their best internet service, Performance Internet, for the current subscribers in the city of Houston free of charge. They said that the users of Performance Internet would see an increase in their download speeds from 50 Mbps to 70 Mbps and that users can experiences the increase in speed from March 1.
“We realize technological innovations are occurring rapidly, and our customers need the speed to make the most of them,” said Ralph Martinez, who is the Regional Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Houston region. “These increases reflect our commitment to delivering the fastest speeds to our customers, just like we’ve done almost every year for more than a decade.”
To access the speeds, most of the users just need to restart their modems when Comcast notifies them. Comcast will also notify those users who need to upgrade their current modems to access the increased speeds.
In addition to that, those users who lease modems from Comcast will also be able to get upgraded modems from Comcast free of charge. Those users who have their own modems and need to upgrade modems to have access to the increased internet speeds will have to buy a new one for them or may lease a new one from Comcast Corporation.
Xfinity from Comcast continues to offer the best in-home Wi-Fi and most of the customers of Xfinity internet will be able to enjoy complimentary access to the fifteen million plus Wi-Fi hotspots that are spread across the nation. This can be done just by selecting “xfinitywifi” from the list of available Wi-Fi networks on their smartphones or laptops and typing in their email ID, Xfinity ID, and password.
Customers can find hotspots using the Xfinity Wi-Fi app that can be downloaded free for Android and iOS devices or by using the hotspot finder map that is provided on the Xfinity website.
