What does the future of the Xfinity 10G Network mean to customers? It means connecting you to more of what you love, while providing a smarter, faster, more reliable, and secure connectivity experience at home and on the go. People need unparalleled broadband to fuel their hyperconnected lives, which is why over the next few years Comcast is:
- Accelerating network enhancements, introducing symmetrical multi-gigabit Internet options.
- Providing new low latency features for applications like gaming, virtual reality, and videoconferencing where real time connectivity without delay is increasingly important.
- Rolling out new WiFi features that build upon reliability with a guarantee offer that increases support for in-home WiFi, and a new device with cellular and battery backup to help keep customers connected even when the power goes out.
“Streaming live sports, 4K gaming, hybrid work, and virtual reality have gone mainstream in just a few years, and gig speeds, capacity, reliability, and low latency are key factors making our connectivity experience superior to the competition,” said Kalyn Hove, Senior Vice President, Comcast Midwest Region. “Our definition of reliability has to shift from merely being always-on, to powering multiple data-intensive applications across dozens of devices, and the investments we are making in our network are creating immediate benefits for our customers.”
