Comcast announced that its ultra-fast Xfinity Gigabit Internet and Comcast Business Gigabit services now available to nearly all of the company’s 58 million homes and businesses passed in 39 states.

The cable operator has completed nationwide DOCSIS 3.1 upgrade to offer 1 Gbps broadband services. This deployment represents the fastest roll out of gigabit speeds to the most homes in the country, says Comcast. 

Comcast's residential broadband service is powered and controlled by Xfinity xFi, a digital dashboard that personalizes, monitors and manages WiFi connected devices in the home. Consumers now can add xFi Pods, small, easy to install extenders that plug into any electrical outlet, pairs with xFi Wireless Gateways, and help customers create a mesh network that extends coverage to hard-to-reach areas of their home. 

Additionally, Comcast Business provides multi-gig speeds to business customers in Comcast’s footprint – whether an enterprise with locations across the country that needs multi-gigabit speed or a small business with only a handful of locations.

Outside the home, Xfinity Internet customers also have access to more than 19 million WiFi hotspots, so they can stay connected on the go at no additional cost. Comcast continues to offer an unmatched internet experience that combines gigabit speeds with wall-to-wall WiFi, personalized tools and controls, and enough capacity to stay ahead of tomorrow’s innovations.
