Comcast Increasing Internet Speeds for Twin Cities Customers

Good news for some folks in the Twin Cities, according to Business Wire

Comcast today announced it is increasing the speeds of its Xfinity Internet service packages for existing customers in the Twin Cities area at no additional cost.

The speed increases will vary based on the Xfinity Internet customers’ current speed subscriptions, and the majority of customers will see an increase of 50 Mbps. New and existing customers can expect to experience enhanced speeds this month.

“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 increases reflect our ongoing commitment to offer the fastest speeds to our customers and deliver a great experience anytime, anywhere.”

To get the increased speeds, most customers will simply need to re-start their modems when notified by Comcast that the new speed is available. Comcast will also notify customers who may need to upgrade their modems to receive the increased speeds. Those who own their own modems and need to upgrade them to receive the increased speeds will need to purchase a new one or can lease a new modem from Comcast.
