April 21, 2011 |

Comcast Corp., provider of entertainment, information and communication products and services, announced that its newest ultra-fast Xfinity Internet speed tier, Extreme 105, is now available to more than 40 million homes in major markets across the nation including Davis.

“This speed tier continues to expand our portfolio of Internet service offerings and takes them up to a whole new level,” said Cathy Avgiris, senior vice president and general manager of communications and data services, in a news release. “With it, we’re powering the digital home of the future, where entire families using multiple devices — laptops, gaming consoles, tablets, smart phones — can all take advantage of high-bandwidth applications simultaneously ensuring they each have a great online experience.”

The Extreme 105 Mbps service, which also offers up to 10 Mbps upload speeds, is available for new or existing customers at an introductory rate of $105 per month for 12 months as part of their triple play bundle, the company said.

In addition, the service comes with a wireless home networking gateway that turns a house into its own WiFi hotspot. Comcast offers Extreme 105 service on a standalone basis, and also offers a variety of other speed tiers in either bundles or as standalone packages, so consumers can choose a service that best meets their needs.

Extreme 105 is made possible through the use of DOCSIS 3.0 technology. At a connection speed of up to 105 Mbps, Comcast customers can not only download and watch a hi-def movie in about 5 minutes, but also play online interactive games, send and receive email attachments, shop and update social networking Web pages faster than ever before.

Xfinity Internet service includes a suite of additional features for no additional cost. These include the most comprehensive online protection suite, Constant Guard, with top-rated Norton Security from Symantec, a Comcast Anti-Phishing Toolbar, Secure Backup and Share, plus bot detection and notification and access to a robust online security website with tips, tools and resources to help customers protect themselves and their children at www.comcast.net/security.

In addition, Xfinity Internet customers have free access to the Xfinity Mobile app for iPhone, iPod touch and Android-powered devices. The app enables Triple Play customers to access email and voicemail features as well as seamlessly connect to the Xfinity TV app, which allows for remote DVR programming, channel listings, the ability to change TV channels on a set top box just like a remote control and much more.
