Blast is getting a FREE Boost! How will you use an extra fifty percent? #XFINITYreviewer

Comcast recently announced it is increasing Internet speeds in Michigan at no additional charge to customers. The company will increase the speed of its popular Blast! tier by 50 percent to 75 Mbps and introduce a new Extreme 150 Mbps speed tier. This latest increase demonstrates Comcast’s ongoing commitment to continue to increase speeds for its customers, as it has virtually every year for more than the past decade, to support the increasing number of Internet connected devices in the home.

“Our goal is to give our customers choices that fit their lifestyle and all the broadband capacity they need to stay ahead of future technologies and innovations,” said Tim Collins, senior vice president of Comcast’s Heartland Region. “We understand that Internet access is a necessity, not a luxury. That’s why we’ll continue investing in our Michigan network to ensure our customers get the best overall experience—both at home and on the go with our robust Wi-Fi coverage.”

This is great news for a family like ours! An average evening in our house consist of three floors of active internet use. Gaming in the basement, streaming from our teenager’s room on the main floor, while I work online in our upstairs home office. Plus, weather permitting my husband often enjoys watching the Xfinity TVGO app while sitting outside, adding the front porch to the list.

Having an additional fifty percent of Xfinity Blast! Internet means we don’t have to worry about system overload. Unlike our experience with several previous providers. Now, we can stream while working without worry.

How about you? How would you use an extra fifty percent?

    Right now in Washington State I have to pay for this extra level on boost. Maybe someday, Comcast will give it to me free. But I do have to say that they gave it to me free for one year. I have to have this extra boost of speed because my nephew plays games and so do I! How awesome that you are getting it free!

    I haven’t noticed the faster speed yet but I think that’s because my computer is old, lol (almost 6 years old, this November). I would use it for blogging and youtube videos!

      Liz, have you upgraded your modem? Some customers have to call for a new modem to see the faster speed. Also, you are correct, no matter what speed your provider is giving you, your equipment can only go so fast.

  21. Karen Glatt says:

    It is great to get the extra speed to do gaming, enter giveaways, and just surf the Internet. I my sister and nephew all need the extra speed to do the things we want. I am glad Comcast has the blast service available!

  22. mrsshukra says:

    Doing more things on the internet now, definitely need this faster speed!
