Strong internet connectivity helps you thrive as life evolves
In 2021, Comcast’s network traffic continued to grow, with entertainment activities like video streaming accounting for 71 percent of downstream traffic. As network demand evolves, Comcast is enabling its 10G network which will deliver multigigabit speeds to tens of millions of Americans over the connections already existing in their homes.
This means we are ready today – for what tomorrow will bring. In Colorado, Comcast is delivering 2Gbps speeds to customers in Colorado Springs and the Denver Metro Area over technology that’s already in their homes and businesses. This means more Coloradans have access to a faster, safer, and more reliable connection to do more of what they love. Think about it – over Comcast’s 10G enabled network, more Coloradans can game anywhere; stream everywhere; and connect more powerfully – even when the power goes out.
Connectivity is essential
We have more and more Wi-Fi-enabled devices we use every day– like gaming systems, smartphones, security camera systems, smart outlets, color-changing lightbulbs and thermostats.
Life during the pandemic meant more people relying on these types of Wi-Fi enabled devices to stay connected and productive. This reliance continues today. Data shows in 2021, Comcast connected nearly a billion unique devices to Wi-Fi, a 12-fold increase from 2018.
This increase in usage underscores the need for fast, reliable and secure connectivity. During the unprecedented shift in network usage throughout the pandemic, Comcast invested more than $4.2 billion to strengthen, expand and evolve its network — more than any previous year. From 2017 to 2021, the company invested nearly $20 billion to evolve and grow their network, as well as build out more than 50,000 new miles of fiber. That is equivalent to driving back and forth from the west to east coast 20 times.
With these investments Comcast continually makes in our network, more people in Colorado can remain securely connected.
Made for Anything, So you can do anything
Comcast’s 10G enabled network will allow us to scale beyond anything our customers do on the network today, to whatever tomorrow brings. It’s powered by our cloud-based, all-digital network, that will allow us to deliver multigigabit symmetrical speeds, coupled with lower latency, energy efficiency, increased security, and improved reliability. The next generation of connectivity is here today.
