Xfinity Mobile and Comcast Business Mobile devices can now connect to millions of new "Xfinity Mobile" hotspots and receive Internet speeds over WiFi up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps). By delivering a faster connection over Xfinity's WiFi network, Comcast is helping ensure customers can stream, game, chat, download and surf wherever they are.

Today 90 percent of the mobile data traffic on Xfinity Mobile devices travels over WiFi, not cellular. With more than 23 million WiFi hotspots giving customers a speed boost, Xfinity Mobile continues to deliver a better experience to support data-intensive applications when traditional cellular networks can't keep up. Comcast has invested more than $20B over the past five years to upgrade and expand the Xfinity network and introduce new innovative features like WiFi Boost to support the constantly increasing number of connected devices consumers use both inside and outside of the home.

As consumers increasingly want to enjoy experiences on the go, Xfinity Mobile and Comcast Business Mobile are tapping into the nation's largest and most powerful WiFi network to deliver their customers even more speed. The extensive availability of WiFi is a major reason why Xfinity Mobile and Comcast Business Mobile are the fastest mobile services in Comcast areas.

Powered by a World-Class Network

WiFi Boost is made possible by Comcast's fiber-based network which has been built to deliver an exceptional Internet experience, ubiquitously, to the more than 60 million homes and businesses and across more than 23 million WiFi hotspots in Comcast's footprint. It is a culmination of years of research, technological breakthroughs, and massive investments, including more than $20 billion since 2018 alone, in development and infrastructure.
