If you're a Comcast Xfinity customer in the Rockford area, your internet speed might seem faster than normal all thanks to Comcast.

I've been an Xfinity customer for about five years now and just recently got my internet bill basically cut in half.  If one of the Comcast representatives didn't tell me about the price drop, I probably would've been paying way more than I actually needed to.  So, shoutout to Adrian from Xfinity in Rockford for hooking me up!

Now, I'm seeing all over Facebook that Comcast announced on Wednesday, March 6th, 2024 that they're giving thousands of customers faster internet speed at no additional cost.

Emily, the Senior Vice President, Consumer Internet Services, at Comcast says,

"We have regularly increased speeds over the past two decades to provide customers with the connectivity they need to power their increasingly connected lives. And, with the potential that funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program will not be renewed, this year we have really leaned into boosting speeds for these customers so that they can take advantage of these new capabilities."

Take full advantage of the new changes that went into effect Wednesday!  I'll be scrolling TikTok way faster now and that's my favorite perk, by far haha.
