LYNNWOOD, Wash., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast, the nation's largest
Internet service provider, today announced it is increasing the speeds of two
of its most popular XFINITY Internet speed plans, Blast! and Extreme 50, in
Washington state for no additional cost. Customers will enjoy more than twice
as fast Internet speeds on multiple devices, allowing them to surf, chat,
stream HD movies and TV shows, or game online with double the speed. Also for
no additional cost, Comcast is increasing the speed of its widely used
Performance plan by more than 30 percent.

"As customer demands and technology evolve, we continue to increase our
broadband speeds to deliver the best, fastest and most reliable Internet
experience possible for our customers," said Len Rozek regional senior vice
president of Comcast's Washington market. "Whether chatting, surfing,
streaming, gaming, skyping or downloading, families will get the superfast,
high-performing Internet service they need, with no extra charge."


  oThe Blast! plan is increasing download speeds from up to 25 Mbps to speeds
    up to 50 Mbps and upload speeds from up to 4 Mbps to up to 10 Mbps
  oExtreme 50 customers will receive download speeds up to 105 Mbps (formerly
    50 Mbps) and upload speeds up to 20 Mbps (formerly 15 Mbps).
  oThe Performance plan is increasing to speeds up to 20 Mbps from 15 Mbps
    downstream and to 4 Mbps from 2 Mbps upstream.

that Comcast delivers speeds to customers that are even faster than the
advertised speeds. Comcast is not only delivering the nation's fastest
Internet, but it is also providing the fastest in-home WiFi with its latest
XFINITY Wireless Gateway, an all-in-one device that gives customers reliably
fast speeds with the most coverage in their home so everyone can get online
