Augusta is the First City in Georgia where Comcast is Deploying New Multi-Gig Speeds
Also Introduces Fastest Upload Speeds Yet, Up to 10 Times Faster
Today Comcast launched an additional multi-gig Internet speed tier to Xfinity and Comcast Business customers in Augusta. Augusta is the first community in Georgia where Comcast is now delivering download speeds of 2 gigabits per second (Gbps) over the connections already existing in homes and businesses today.
Once the rollout is complete, no other provider will be able to deliver multi-gigabit speeds to more homes and businesses throughout Augusta than Comcast. This multi-gig speed tier is already available to nearly half of the marketplace, with new homes being added regularly.
In addition to multi-gigabit download speeds, Comcast is introducing faster upload speeds to Xfinity Internet customers who choose xFi Complete. Comcast Business customers will receive up to 10 times faster upload speeds than their current levels. Network data shows downstream traffic remains 14 times greater than upload, so the introduction of symmetrical upload speeds will be well in advance of demand.
“During the pandemic, we saw how vital having a fast, reliable internet connection was,” said Jason Gumbs, Regional SVP at Comcast. “Our network investments will keep more Augustans connected with the speeds and technology they need.”
“We appreciate Comcast’s continued technology investments in Augusta,” said Dr. Hardie Davis, Jr., Mayor of Augusta. “Comcast has been a great partner at helping us bridge the digital divide and connecting more residents and businesses with the power of the Internet.”
Faster speeds will be just one of the consumer benefits made possible through Comcast’s continued efforts to evolve its entire network to 10 Gbps. This is a next-generation technology platform supported by a global collaboration of companies in the Internet industry focused on building networks that stay ahead of consumer demand for connectivity. In addition to enabling multi-gig symmetrical connections, 10G efforts will provide even greater network reliability, lower latency, faster troubleshooting, and increased energy efficiency.

The new speeds are being rolled out to Comcast markets across the country through 2025. Visit Xfinity or Comcast Business to learn more and sign up for these exciting new products.
