Comcast's (NASDAQ:CMCSA) gigabit Internet services are now available to nearly all of the company's 58 million homes and businesses passed in 39 states and the District of Columbia. This deployment represents the fastest roll out of gigabit speeds to the most homes in the country. The company says it is now the nation's largest provider of gigabit broadband.

"Comcast continues to offer an unmatched Internet experience that combines gigabit speeds with wall-to-wall WiFi, personalized tools and controls, and enough capacity to stay ahead of tomorrow's innovations," said Dana Strong, president of Consumer Services, Comcast. "We've built an innovative high-speed data platform that combines speed, coverage and control features, and really sets our broadband experience apart from the competition."

Comcast's residential broadband service is powered and controlled by Xfinity xFi, a digital dashboard that personalizes, monitors and manages WiFi connected devices in the home. Consumers can add xFi Pods, small extenders that plug into any electrical outlet, pair with xFi Wireless Gateways, and create a mesh network to extend coverage to hard-to-reach areas of the home. Comcast Business provides multi-gig speeds to business customers in Comcast's footprint.

Outside the home, Xfinity Internet customers also have access to more than 19 million WiFi hotspots.

Gigabit service is among a wide range of speed offerings designed to support the personal needs of customers. Today, 75% of Xfinity Internet customers choose plans with speeds of 100 Mbps or more, double the speed those customers took just three years ago.
