Comcast High-Speed Internet Reaches 40 Million Homes
On Thursday, Comcast announced they have reached a milestone with their Extreme 105 high-speed Internet which is now being offered to 40 million homes nationwide.

Made possible through DOCSIS 3.0 technology, the Extreme 105 internet service allows Comcast customers to download and surf the Web faster than ever before. "We’re powering the digital home of the future, where entire families using multiple devices can take advantage of high-bandwidth applications simultaneously ensuring they each have a great online experience," commented Cathy Avgiris, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Communications and Data Services.
