Comcast Launches Its Most Powerful Internet Device Capable Of Multi-Gigabit Speeds With WiFi 6

PHILADELPHIA, PA

The ultra-fast xFi Advanced Gateway delivers exceptionally lower latency for unrivaled cloud and online gaming, 4K video streaming, and VR and AR experiences. The new xFi Advanced Gateway is one of the first WiFi 6 certified devices in the U.S.
Today Comcast announced that its next-generation xFi Advanced Gateway, its first device capable of delivering true multi-gigabit speeds, will begin rolling out to customers in the coming months. Comcast, the nation’s largest gigabit speed provider, now becomes one of the first U.S. Internet Service Providers to offer a WiFi 6 Certified gateway delivering faster speeds, ultimate capacity, lower latency and best-in-class WiFi coverage throughout the home.
Xfinity Internet power users are connecting on average 50 devices in the home per month and, globally, an additional 100 million smart home devices are expected to be added to home networks by 2023 (Strategy Analytics). The xFi Advanced Gateway is designed for high-performance users to handle more capacity for even more smart home devices coming online today and in the future. This gateway delivers exceptionally lower latency for an unrivaled cloud and online gaming, 4K video streaming, and VR and AR experiences, as these applications increasingly become mainstream.
The gateway also provides unprecedented WiFi signal range, blanketing the vast majority of most homes with ultra-fast speeds. Combined with xFi pods, customers can create their own personalized mesh WiFi networks throughout their home.
“We designed the next-generation Advanced Gateway to be the fastest, smartest and most powerful WiFi device on the planet to continue to deliver on our promise of bringing our customers a great broadband experience,” said Kunle Ekundare, Director of Product and Hardware Management, Comcast. “The xFi Advanced Gateway is truly the best Internet product we’ve ever built, and we’re thrilled to be bringing our customers into the future with WiFi 6.”

Not only is the xFi Advanced Gateway one of the best performing gateways on the market, but it also comes with xFi – a simple, digital dashboard for Xfinity customers to control their home WiFi network. In addition to parental control features like pausing WiFi and screen time scheduling, xFi provides content filters that ensure younger children can only access age-appropriate content. xFi now also comes with xFi Advanced Security, that protects all the devices connected to a customers’ home network from malware and other security threats. xFi can be accessed via the mobile app (iOS and Android), website, or on the TV, on X1 and Flex, with the Xfinity Voice Remote. The feature is available at no extra cost to the more than 18 million Xfinity Internet customers who lease a compatible xFi gateway.

The new xFi Advanced Gateway will be available in the coming months to customers that subscribe to Xfinity Internet speed tiers of 300 Mbps or faster.
