Comcast Shows Off Gig Gateway at CES

With its largest presence at CES in years, Comcast took the wraps off its long-awaited gigabit gateway and a new platform for managing the home WiFi network. Light Reading Senior Editor Mari Silbey sat down with EVP Chris Satchell to discuss the latest Comcast advance, and met with VP of Product Strategy and Development Andrea Peiro to walk through a demo of the new digital home system. "When we launch this quarter, we'll have 10 million households enabled on this service," notes Comcast's Satchell in the interview. "By the end of this year, we'll have 15 million households."

Dinnertime mode?

I love it! I don't even have kids and I love it. 

Though I suspect my wife would abuse it when I have been in the smallest room of the house too long. A man likes to take his time in there and relax. Women don't appreciate that. 

This is a real opportunity for Comcast and other cable providers, and an excellent one. Setting up a home WiFI network that saturates the whole house is hard, and making hard things easy is how business succeeds.
