Internet service provider Comcast announced Friday the launch of its newest Xfinity Wireless Gateway.
It aims to give customers faster wireless speeds with the most coverage throughout their connected home.
Xfinity Wireless Gateway is claimed to be the first to leverage emerging wireless technologies that enable customers to experience faster speeds and better performance over their home wireless network.
Comcast also announced it has boosted speeds nationwide for two of its most popular Xfinity Internet speed plans, Blast! and Extreme 50.
Specifically, the Blast! tier increased from 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps downstream and from 4 Mbps to 10 Mbps upstream. Extreme 50 went from 50 Mbps to 105 Mbps downstream and from 15 Mbps to 20 Mbps upstream.
“Today, there are nearly six connected devices for every U.S. home with Internet service and that is only going to increase in the future which is why we continue to increase speeds on a regular basis,” said Rob Slinkard, senior VP of Data and Communications for Comcast Cable.
“The Xfinity Wireless Gateway provides these homes with a reliably fast Internet connection that ensures our customers are getting the best performance from their wireless devices. We are continuing to invest in our network to provide customers everything they need to power their connected home.”
The new Xfinity Wireless Gateway has begun its national rollout and will be made available for the same rental fee as Comcast’s standard equipment, says the company.
