Comcast has launched a new internet service that will deliver speeds up to 1 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) to residential customers throughout its Oregon/SW Washington region. These speeds will be among the fastest and most widely available in the region and include access to the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network of more than 17 million hotspots. Combined with the company’s recently launched Xfinity xFi platform, a new and personalized home Wi-Fi experience, Comcast is giving Oregon/SW Washington customers the fastest speeds, the best coverage, and ultimate Wi-Fi control in their homes.
“Super-fast residential internet speed is now available to all customers in Comcast’s Oregon/SW Washington region,” said Rodrigo Lopez, regional senior vice-president for Comcast Oregon/SW Washington. “We continue to be the leader in delivering the fastest speeds to the most homes, providing technology that’s vital to today’s internet-dependent households.”
Earlier this month, Comcast launched Xfinity xFi, a platform that provides a simple digital dashboard for customers to set up their home Wi-Fi network, find their password, see what devices are connected, troubleshoot issues, set parental controls, and even pause Wi-Fi access on their home network during dinner or bedtime. Outside the home, most Xfinity Internet customers also have complimentary access to nearly 17 million Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide.
The company’s new 1 Gigabit internet service delivers 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 cable modem. New and current customers in Oregon/SW Washington can visit https://www.xfinity.com/gig to learn about the new service and request additional information.
The everyday price for 1 Gigabit service in Oregon/SW Washington is $159.95, without a contract. The company will test a $109.99 per month promotional price across the region. Additional prices and promotions may be tested in the future.
