$100 AMEX Gift Card Giveaway

Posted on Jul 17 2015 - 9:00am by Susan Bewley


A few years ago many of the technology we use now was something we only imagined or thought was a long ways off. With video phones, iPads, Baby Monitors and so much more we are able to keep in touch with others as well as simplify everyday tasks.

However, when using much of this technology nothing can be more frustrating than having slow internet connection. Think back to the days of Early Dial up and how long it took to get connected, yet it was something we used and were happy with. Could you use the same connection now? Thankfully internet connections and speed are starting to speed up and slow internet connections are truly becoming a thing of the past.

In today’s tech-driven world, it’s all about being fast – faster than the competitors, fast enough to get it all done, fast enough to leave you some free time. Comcast recently announced it will begin offering Gigabit Pro, a new residential Internet service that offers speeds at 2-Gigabits-per-second. In tech speak, it sounds cool…but what does this mean for residents?

The new speeds are at least double what any other provider can provide. They’re the fastest speeds to the most homes. You’ll be able to download multimedia files in 60 seconds, HD movies in 20 seconds and full music albums in less than a second. With this change, XFINITY has increased their speeds 15 times in the past 13 years – a showing of dedication to the future of technology.

The speedy service will launch in Atlanta, California, Chattanooga, Chicago, Colorado, Houston,Knoxville, Miami, Nashville, NW Indiana, Portland, Twin Cities, Utah and Washington state. It’ll be available to about 18 million homes by the end of the year – more homes in more neighborhoods than any other network!

While you may not need these Internet speeds right now, the point of the new 2 Gbps speed is to build up infrastructure for the future, where these fiber-run networks will be the norm. Making this an indispensable commodity in the near future.

Just like I never knew I couldn’t be without my laptop, there are many technological advances coming in the near future that will become necessities for us as technology exceeded imagination. Make sure and stay up to date with all that Xfinity has to offer in the coming years starting with this amazing new speed.
