  • Comcast Corp (NASDAQ: CMCSA) has raised the speeds for some of its most popular Internet speed tiers in Utah, including the Xfinity Gigabit service.

  • It offered consumers advanced wifi technology capable of delivering faster than one Gigabit per second (Gbps) to support the connected devices in their homes.

  • The upgrade to the Xfinity Gigabit service is part of a national rollout that began this year.

  • Comcast achieved a 10G technical milestone delivering symmetrical 1.25 gigabit-per-second upload and download speeds over a live production network.

  • Comcast raised the Extreme Pro+ customers' download speed from 600 Megabits per second (Mbps) to 800 Mbps. In addition, it increased the Performance Starter+ customers' download speed from 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps. The upgrades did not involve an additional cost.

  • Comcast will contact Gigabit Internet customers who need to upgrade their equipment for no extra charge if they don't have a capable device in their home.

  • Performance Starter customers will not require new equipment to experience the higher internet speed.

  • Comcast has devoted over $15 billion to strengthening and expanding its network since 2017.

  • Comcast aimed to launch 1,000 Lift Zones throughout the country, with 35 in Utah, by the end of 2021, and investing in education and equity-focused organizations.

  • Price action: CMCSA shares traded higher by 0.45% at $57.54 on the last check Tuesday.
