Today Comcast launched an additional multi-gig Internet speed tier to Xfinity and Comcast Business customers in Colorado Springs. Colorado Springs is the first community in Colorado where Comcast is beginning to deliver download speeds of 2 Gbps over the connections already existing in homes and businesses today. Once the rollout is complete, these multi-gig speeds will be available in all of Comcast’s service area in Colorado Springs, as well as throughout Comcast’s entire footprint in Colorado.

In addition to multi-gigabit download speeds, Comcast is introducing faster upload speeds in Colorado Springs to Xfinity Internet customers who choose xFi Complete, and Comcast Business customers, will receive up to 10X faster upload speeds than their current levels. Network data shows downstream traffic remains 14X greater than upload, so the introduction of symmetrical upload speeds will be well in advance of demand.

“Our network is made for anything, so you can do anything,” said J.D. Keller, Senior Vice President Comcast Mountain West Region. “During the pandemic, we saw how vital having a fast, reliable internet connection is for all people, and demand for internet services continues to increase at a fast pace. My own kids and family are working, learning, chatting, watching movies or playing games on-line whenever we are in the house. I know others have the same experience. Comcast’s investments in our network will keep more people in Colorado Springs securely connected and ensure they have the technology today to meet the needs of tomorrow.”

“By investing in infrastructure upgrades that ensure secure, reliable connectivity for all our residents and businesses, installing free Community WiFi Lift Zones, and supporting Olympic City USA in a variety of ways, Comcast has shown a commitment to Colorado Springs and to ensuring our city is preparing for tomorrow – today,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers.

Faster speeds will be just one of the consumer benefits made possible through Comcast’s continued efforts to evolve its entire network to 10G. 10G is a next-generation technology platform supported by a global collaboration of companies in the Internet industry focused on building networks that stay ahead of consumer demand for connectivity. In addition to enabling multi-gig symmetrical connections, 10G efforts will provide even greater network reliability, lower latency, faster troubleshooting, and increased energy efficiency. More information about the industry’s efforts toward a 10G future can be found here.

The new speeds are available today to Xfinity and Comcast Business customers in parts of Colorado Springs and will be rolled out to Comcast markets across the country through 2025. Visit Xfinity or Comcast Business to learn more and sign up for these exciting new products.
