Comcast Launches Xfinity Wireless Gateway
Comcast today launches its newest Xfinity Wireless Gateway that gives customers the nation’s fastest wireless speeds with the most coverage throughout their connected home. Unlike similar devices offered by other Internet service providers today, the Xfinity Wireless Gateway is the first to leverage emerging wireless technologies that enable customers to experience faster speeds and better performance over their home wireless network. Now everyone can get online and do more on their devices all at the same time.
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.
The new Xfinity Wireless Gateway is the first of its kind to include the 5.0 GHz radio frequency. This new frequency is being used by many of the latest consumer electronic products and results in better speed and performance from connected devices. It also has been built to a new standard (MoCA 2.0), which allows the device to create a faster and more efficient network of connected devices within the home.
