Comcast Announces 2 Gigabit Residential Service in California

  • Comcast
PHILADELPHIA, PA — Comcast announced it will launch Extreme 250, a new 250 Mbps Internet speed tier for California customers. The company also will increase its Performance tier from 50 Mbps to 75 Mbps and its Blast tier from 105 Mbps to 150 Mbps, both at no additional cost to customers. These changes will go into effect starting in May and continue throughout the year.

In addition, Comcast will roll out its residential multi-gigabit broadband service to nearly 3 million California homes starting in June. Gigabit Pro is a symmetrical, 2 Gbps service that will be delivered via a fiber-to-the-home solution and offered to customers in the Chico, Fresno, Marysville/Yuba City, Merced, Modesto, Monterey, Sacramento, Salinas, San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Barbara County, Stockton and Visalia metro areas.

Boosting Speeds to Do More Across Multiple Devices
"This is Comcast’s 15th speed increase in 13 years. We are proud to boost our existing speeds and most importantly introduce new Internet tiers like the Extreme 250 and Gigabit Pro that will allow our California customers to do more online, across multiple devices," said Hank Fore, regional senior vice president of Comcast Cable’s California region. "We will continue to look for opportunities to increase speeds to not only stay ahead of customer demands, but also to provide a wide range of options that meet customer needs."

Gigabit Pro will be available to homes within close proximity of Comcast’s fiber network and will require installation of professional-grade equipment. The company has fiber at the core of its network and, for the past decade, it has invested billions of dollars to extend that fiber deeper into neighborhoods and closer to homes. To date, Comcast has built out more than 145,000 route miles of fiber across its service area, including throughout California, to serve residential communities with a fiber to the home solution.

Comcast has been doubling the capacity of its network every 18 months. Additionally, the company has been delivering multi-gig (up to 10 Gbps) Ethernet service to businesses in California since 2011. Comcast first announced Gigabit Pro in Atlanta earlier this month.
