Gigabit

I started to see commercials on TV about gigabit internet from Xfinity. I did a chat and the rep told me it was available for my address. 

 

So I stopped by a Comcast store and picked up a modem.

 

Now I chat to change my service to gigabit, one rep told me it was available but they couldn't do it that I had to call. Another rep told me that it wasn't available for me.

 

Is there a Comcast employee on this forum that can check for me.


Thanks,

Expert

Re: Gigabit

Normally for Gigabit, you would need a professional install. Sounds like something is screwy. 

 

I've asked a Comcast employee to help you. You should expect a reply in this thread.

What is the “professional install” and is that the reason why my 1 year install of Blast wiring has to be upgraded?

Hi nythml -- The professional install for Gigabit service ensures your signal and wiring are strong enough to handle Gigabit speeds. If you had wiring installed a year ago then no upgraded wiring would be needed as you'd have the latest wiring we use.

Thank you ComcastZach. When my new modem arrives, I'll schedule an upgrade.

Hi nyhtml. Just checking in. Did you receive your modem? Did you need any further assistance with the upgrade?
