Comcast is investing more than $81 million this year to deploy Xfinity 10G network that will offer Washington customers internet speeds up to 10 times faster than the fastest they have now. These fiber-rich network improvements will extend throughout Comcast’s service area in Oregon and Washington to every community, Zip Code, and neighborhood served by the network.
Deployed throughout this year, the network enhancement will be largely invisible to the public because Comcast’s Hybrid-Fiber Coaxial (HFC) network architecture enables the company to evolve network connections with minimal disruption. This approach efficiently delivers faster speeds to the greatest number of people in the shortest time because Comcast doesn’t need to trench in neighborhoods and millions of yards in the Pacific Northwest.
The first phase of network enhancements is happening now and will offer a maximum download speed of two Gbps, combined with upload speeds up to 200 Mbps, which is five to 10 times faster than Comcast’s existing upload speeds. Our Xfinity 10G network upgrade is expected to offer multi-gig internet speeds to approximately 1.7 million homes and businesses throughout Oregon and Washington by year end.
