Today, Comcast announced that millions of customers of its Xfinity Internet service will be getting free speed boosts nationwide. This speed increase is for new and future customers at no additional costs.

“Streaming live sports, gaming, and other data-rich applications are driving Internet consumption to new heights,” said Emily Waldorf, Senior Vice President, Consumer Internet Services, Comcast. ”We have regularly increased speeds over the past two decades to provide customers with the connectivity they need to power their increasingly connected lives. And, with the potential that funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program will not be renewed, this year we have really leaned into boosting speeds for these customers so that they can take advantage of these new capabilities.”

With this news customers on the following plans will see speeds increase to the following new packages:

  • Connect: 75 Mbps to 150 Mbps
  • Connect More: 200 Mbps to 300 Mbps
  • Fast: 400 Mbps to 500 Mbps
  • Xfinity Prepaid: 50 Mbps to 200 Mbps

This all comes as Comcast and other cable TV providers have been losing internet customers to new competitors like T-Mobile’s 5G Home Internet and Verizon’s 5G Home Internet, to name a few. Now, these new speeds can help Comcast stand out from these new competitors.

If you are a Comcast customer for the internet, there is nothing you need to do. These speeds will automatically be applied to your account if you are on one of these plans.
