PHILADELPHIA, P.A. -- Comcast, the nation’s largest Internet service provider, today announced the launch of its newest Xfinity Wireless Gateway that gives customers the nation’s fastest wireless speeds with the most coverage throughout their connected home. Unlike similar devices offered by other Internet service providers today, the Xfinity Wireless Gateway is the first to leverage emerging wireless technologies that enable customers to experience faster speeds and better performance over their home wireless network. Now everyone can get online and do more on their devices all at the same time. Comcast also announced it has boosted speeds nationwide for two of its most popular Xfinity Internet speed plans, Blast! and Extreme 50. Specifically, the Blast! tier increased from 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps downstream and from 4 Mbps to 10Mbps upstream. Extreme 50 went from 50 Mbps to 105 Mbps downstream and from 15 Mbps to 20 Mbps upstream. “Today, there are nearly six connected devices for every U.S. home with Internet service and that is only going to increase in the future which is why we continue to increase speeds on a regular basis,” said Rob Slinkard, Senior Vice President of Data and Communications for Comcast Cable. “The Xfinity Wireless Gateway provides these homes with a reliably fast Internet connection that ensures our customers are getting the best performance from their wireless devices. We are continuing to invest in our network to provide customers everything they need to power their connected home.” Comcast Corp.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
