Comcast customers across Florida are now getting a faster internet… at no additional charge. The company has increased the speed of its popular Blast! tier by 50 percent to 75 Mbps while also introducing a new Extreme 150 Mbps speed tier.
“We are very excited to bring our Florida customers even faster internet speeds, as we know how much they rely on the Internet in their daily lives. With this speed boost for our Blast! tier and the addition of the new Extreme 150 tier, Comcast is providing our customers with even more choices to get the best, fastest and most reliable Internet experience possible,” said Thomas Zemaitis, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Comcast’s Florida Region.
The new speeds and tiers will be available immediately to the vast majority of new and existing customers in Florida. Customers with Blast! speed tiers will see their speeds go from 50 to 75 Mbps, a 50 percent increase. To get the new Blast! speeds, customers may need to re-start their modems. Comcast will also notify those customers who may need to upgrade their modems to receive the increased speeds. Customers who lease modems from Comcast will be able to receive upgraded modems at no additional charge. A list of approved modems can be found online at mydeviceinfo.comcast.net.
These new speed increases follow Comcast’s previously announced Gigabit Pro service, a professional-grade residential fiber-to-the-home solution that leverages its fiber network to deliver 2 Gbps upload and download speeds. Gigabit Pro was recently launched in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Jacksonville areas of Florida. Promotional pricing will begin at $159 a month for a three-year contract. Regular pricing is $299.95 a month for a two-year contract. An activation fee of $500 may be waived with some promotions, and installation fees may apply.
