Two new tiers of service have been introduces by the US provider:

– Extreme 50, offering up to 50 Mbps of downstream speed and up to 10 Mbps of upstream speed at $139.95/month and
– Ultra, offering up to 22 Mbps of downstream speed and up to 5 Mbps of upstream speed at $62.95/month.

The company stressed out that an Extreme 50 service will enable consumers to download “a high-def movie (6 GB) in about 16 minutes, a standard-def movie (2 GB) in about 5 minutes and a standard-def TV show (300 MB) in a matter of seconds.”

Comcast has also increased speeds for most of its existing customers. The Performance tier customers get doubled downstream and upstream speeds (up to 12 Mbps and 2 Mbps, respectively), while Performance Plus customers will be upgraded to Comcast’s Blast! (download speeds to up to 16 Mbps and upload speeds up to 2 Mbps).

The new offers spree continues with business customers: they can sign up for the Deluxe 50 Mbps / 10 Mbps tier for $189.95/month, or just enjoy the complimentary speed increases. Speeds on the Starter tier will be doubled to up to 12 Mbps / 2 Mbps and a new Premium Tier also will be introduced, offering speeds up to 22 Mbps / 5 Mbps for only $99.95/month.
