In other words, the new service is now available to nearly 10 million existing customers of the company.
Chris Satchell, Comcast’s chief product officer, said, “This is a product we believe will put really easy control in the hands of our customers. We wanted to make the xFi experience for our normal customer who doesn't want to be a Wi-Fi expert.”
Previously, the Advanced Gateway service was for only available to the company’s gigabit internet customers. These devices serve as a combined cable modem and wireless router for the company’s internet subscribers.
