Comcast Customers in Bothell and Kenmore will Have Access to Even Faster and More Reliable Internet Service thanks to Major Internet Upgrades
XFINITY was the fastest fixed broadband provider in Washington during Q1 2023 according to the Ookla Speedtest Global Index , which ranks broadband speeds from around the world every month. Comcast customers in Bothell and Kenmore may expect to receive even faster and more reliable service thanks to a $280 million investment by the company this year in the Pacific Northwest.
As a part of the investment, Comcast is expanding fiber-rich network improvements that will offer Washington customers upload speeds up to 10 times faster than the fastest they have now. And the network upgrade will extend throughout Comcast’s service area in Washington. Once complete, these locations will have the foundational next-generation network to introduce new multi-gigabit Internet options.
The first phase of network enhancements is happening now and will initially offer a maximum download speed of 2 Gbps, combined with upload speeds up to 200 Mbps, five to 10 times faster than Comcast’s existing upload speeds. Comcast expects that nearly half of the company’s network in Washington will offer multi-gig Internet speeds by the end of 2023.
The network investment is the latest example of Comcast’s investment to connect more households and businesses in the Pacific Northwest to its Internet services that deliver fast speeds, more reliability, broader coverage in the home, and greater capacity to support customers’ growing Internet usage. Comcast invested $1 billion in technology and infrastructure investments in Washington during the previous three years, including network expansion and upgrades.
