Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) moved up 0.34% in pre trading session on Monday that it released that it has started a statewide rollout of multi-gig Internet speeds, which will cover more than 50 million households and businesses by the end of 2025, making it the largest and quickest multi-gig deployment in the US. The new speeds will be partnered with Comcast’s multi-gig Wi-Fi experience, which provides the finest mix of speed, coverage, and management in the business, and is powered, by one of the world’s first Wi-Fi 6E Gateways.
Comcast is speeding the transformation of its network to a virtualized cloud-based architecture that is fully equipped for 10G and DOCSIS 4.0 as part of this project. Comcast plans to launch 10G-enabled multi-gig symmetrical services in 2023.
President of Technology, Product, Experience at Comcast Cable, Charlie Herrin said, “We’re making our network even smarter and faster, which allows us to quickly deliver true multi-gig Wi-Fi to tens of millions of businesses and residential consumers at an unprecedented pace. “Whatever the application, whatever the future holds our network and world-class, whole-home Wi-Fi experience will be there and ready to power all of our customers’ connected experiences.”
Comcast debut its newest Wi-Fi 6E Gateway earlier this year in anticipation for greater network speeds, making it one of the first in the world to enable multi-gigabit symmetrical Wi-Fi. Comcast Commercial also introduced a new, ultra-advanced multi-gigabit gateway for business clients earlier this year.
Comcast has been shifting to digital network technology, which is driven by a virtualized platform and provides higher stability and performance, during the last several years. Rather of manually maintaining, upgrading, and replacing old analog network equipment, which may take days or even weeks, Comcast engineers can now reliably manage, repair, and update fundamental network components with a few keystrokes on a laptop or mobile app. This also significantly improves the network’s energy efficiency and is a key component of Comcast’s ambition to achieve carbon neutrality by 2035.
