Comcast increases internet speed in Washington

WASHINGTON (AP) - Comcast says it has increased its Internet speeds in the Washington area and Northeast region at no additional cost to customers.

The company says its Xfinity Blast tier has more than doubled in speed to 105 megabytes per second. And the Xfinity Extreme tier now offers speeds of 150 megabytes per second

Comcast says customers just have to restart their modems to get the faster speeds. Some may need to upgrade their modems, though, to receive faster Internet service.
