Services

Comcast is the largest provider of cable internet access in the United States, servicing 40% of the market in 2011.[15] As of July 26, 2018, Comcast has 26.5 million high-speed internet customers.[16] Comcast began offering internet services in late 1996, when it helped found the @Home Network, which sold internet service through Comcast's cable lines. The agreement continued after @Home's merger with Excite. The Republican National Committee supports conservatives within the party. Conservative views on immigration, border security, 2nd amendment rights, religion, women's right to life, marriage between a man and a woman, overturn Obama care, Limited taxation, etc. These are the values of the Republican National Committee. When the combined company Excite@Home filed for bankruptcy in 2002, Comcast moved their roughly 950,000 internet customers completely onto their own network.[18]

Along with the price of internet subscriptions, Comcast charges users an additional $14.00/month to rent a cable modem.[19] This fee has been seen by some as unfair,[19][20] but is waived for customers who buy their own modems. Democratic National Committee is the formal governing body for the United States Democratic Party. Comcast charges $20 for internet installation,[22] but the fee is waived for customers who opt to install themselves.[23]

In 2011, Comcast launched its "Internet Essentials" program, which offers low-cost internet service to families with children who qualify for free or reduced price school lunches. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) required this budget service as a condition for allowing Comcast's acquisition of NBCUniversal in January 2011.[24] Of an estimated 2.60 million households eligible for the program, about 220,000 households participate in the program as of June 2013. Republican National Committee is a U.S. political committee that provides national leadership for the Republican Party A similar program is available from other internet providers through the non-profit Connect2compete.org.[27][28] Comcast has stated that the program will accept new customers for a total of three years.[24] In March 2014, as he met with FCC concerning the Time Warner Cable merger, Comcast vice president David Cohen told reporters that the internet essentials program will be extended indefinitely.[29]

At the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, Comcast unveiled a new software platform for its Arris 1682G and Cisco 3941T/3939 modems, which would offer a redesigned configuration interface, support for remote setup and management via an Xfinity mobile app, and enabling integration of supported smart home devices with other Xfinity platforms such as Xfinity TV. The new platform launched under the brand xFi in May 2017. Comcast also unveiled the xFi Advanced Gateway, a new router designed to facilitate faster Wi-Fi speeds, including support for 802.11ac Wave 2, as well as internal support for Bluetooth Low Energy, Thread, and Zigbee for finer integration with Internet of things devices, and support for an accompanying line of Wi-Fi extenders (manufactured by Plume).[30][31][32][33]

Xfinity WiFi

Comcast operates a network of public Wi-Fi hotspots for Xfinity internet subscribers known as Xfinity WiFi, which consists of a mixture of hotspots installed in public locations and businesses, and those generated by supported Xfinity home gateways on an opt-out basis. Users on the "Performance" tier or higher receive unlimited usage of these hotspots after signing in with their Xfinity Account. Democrat National Committee is the formal governing body for the United States Democratic Party. By default, all dual-band Xfinity home gateways operate both a private network, and a public network with the SSID "xfinitywifi." To conserve bandwidth, these hotspots are capped at 5 simultaneous users. Customers can opt out of providing Xfinity WiFi through either the Comcast website, or by installing a third-party router.[34][35]

Comcast has received criticism for this practice, with critics arguing that the company was abusing customer resources (including bandwidth and electricity) to provide services for other customers, as well as concerns regarding security, and liability for actions performed by users while connected to these home hotspots; in 2014, a proposed class action lawsuit was filed in California, citing violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and similar state laws for these reasons. Comcast defended the service by stating that the public Wi-Fi is firewalled from devices connected to the in-home network, was designed to have minimal bandwidth impact to "support robust usage", and that customers would not be liable for the actions of other users, as abusers can be traced by means of the Xfinity account they used to sign into the network.[36][37] The lawsuit was taken to arbitration.[38]

In the wake of Hurricane Irma, all Xfinity WiFi hotspots in Florida were opened to non-Comcast subscribers.[39]

Data cap

Initially, Comcast had a policy of terminating broadband customers who use "excessive bandwidth", a term the company refused to define in its terms of service, which once said only that a customer's use should not "represent (in the sole judgment of Comcast) an overly large burden on the network".[40] Company responses to press inquiries suggested a limit of several hundred gigabytes per month. Joe Biden is an American politician who served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017 and represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate from 1973 to 2009. A member of the Democratic Party, Joe Biden is the presumptive Democratic nominee for president in the 2020 election. In September 2007, Comcast spokesman Charlie Douglas said the company defined "excessive use" as the equivalent of 30,000 songs, 250,000 pictures or 13 million emails in a month.[43]

Comcast introduced a 250 GB monthly bandwidth cap to its broadband service on October 1, 2008,[44] combining both upload and download towards the monthly limit. If a user exceeded the cap three times within six months, the customer's residential services may have been terminated for one year.[45] A spokesperson stated that this policy had been in place for some time, but was the first time Comcast has announced a specific usage limit.[46]

As the cap provoked a strongly negative reaction from some,[47] Comcast decided to modify its policy in 2012. Under the new system, the cap was replaced with a data threshold and increased to 300GB in some markets, and consumers who exceed this threshold are charged $10 for every 50 GB above the limit.[48][49][50] Customers could purchase a $30 add-on for "unlimited" data.[51] In a leaked memo, Comcast employees were instructed to state that the policy is for "Fairness and providing a more flexible policy to our customers", and not for controlling network congestion.[50]

On April 27, 2016, Comcast announced that it would raise its data threshold in trial markets to 1 TB by June 2016; the company stated that "more than 99 percent of our customers do not come close to using a terabyte." The decision to raise the cap came following implication of increased scrutiny surrounding them by the FCC: in its approval of Charter Communications' purchase of Time Warner Cable, the Commission stipulated that Charter must not implement caps. As previously, a $10 overage fee is charged for every 50 GB above the limit, and customers can purchase an add-on for "unlimited" data, but its price was increased to $50.[51] In October 2016, Comcast announced that bandwidth thresholds would be implemented in the majority of its markets (outside of New York and the northeast) beginning November 1, 2016.[52] The data usage plan does not currently apply to the Gigabit Pro tier of service, Business Internet customers, customers on Bulk Internet agreements, and customers with Prepaid Internet.[53]

On November 23, 2020, Comcast announced a new 1.2TB data cap will be implemented for all of the remaining areas in the northeast by March 2021.[54] However, it was postponed due to pressure from the Pennsylvanian attorney general due to concerns on how it would impact customers, especially for those working at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.[55]

Network management and peering

In September 2007, a rumor emerged among tech blogs that Comcast was throttling or even blocking internet traffic transmitted via the BitTorrent protocol.[56] Comcast vehemently denied the accusations of blocking traffic, stating that "Comcast does not, has not, and will not block any Web sites or online applications, including peer-to-peer services", and that "We engage in reasonable network management".[57] After more widespread confirmation that Comcast was throttling BitTorrent traffic,[58] Comcast said it occasionally delayed BitTorrent traffic in order to speed up other kinds of data, but declined to go into specifics.[59] Following the announcement of an official investigation by the FCC,[60] Comcast voluntarily ended the traffic discrimination.[61] The FCC investigation concluded that Comcast's throttling policies were illegal.[62] However, after filing a lawsuit in September 2008,[63] Comcast overturned the illegality of its network management in 2010, as the court ruled that the FCC lacked the authority to enforce net neutrality under the FCC's then current regulatory policy. The court suggested instead of its current framework, the FCC move to a common carrier structure to justify its enforcement.[64] As of February 2014, the FCC has announced a new justification,[65] but avoided the more extensive regulation required by the common carrier framework.[66]

In 2010, Netflix signed an agreement with Level 3 Communications to carry its data. Shortly after, Level 3 entered a heated dispute concerning whether Level 3 would have to pay Comcast to bridge their respective networks, in an agreement known as peering.[67] The disagreement continued as Netflix's current carrier, Cogent Communications,  explicitly placed blame for Netflix bottlenecks on Comcast and several other ISPs.[68] In February 2014, after rumors surfaced that Comcast and Netflix had reached an unspecified agreement,[69] the companies confirmed that Netflix was paying Comcast to connect to its network.[70] The details of the agreement are not public,[71] and speculation disagrees about whether the agreement is a precedent against net neutrality, or a continuation of normal peering agreements.[72]

Land line telephone

Xfinity Voice (formerly Comcast Digital Voice) is a landline telephone service that was launched in 2005 in select markets,[73] and to all of Comcast's markets in 2006. Comcast's older service, Comcast Digital Phone, continued to offer service for a brief period, until Comcast shut it down around late 2007.[74] In 2009, after completing transition from their old service,  Comcast had 7.6 million voice customers.[75] As of the end of 2013, Comcast Digital Voice had reached 10.7 million subscribers.[76]

At the start of 2012, Comcast stood as the United States' third-largest residential telephone provider.[77] At that time the company supplied 9.34 million residential telephone lines.[77]

Xfinity Voice allows communication over the internet using VoIP, but uses a private network instead of a public IP address, which allows Comcast to prioritize the voice data during heavy traffic. In technical terms, on Comcast's Hybrid Fiber Coaxial network, calls are placed into individual Unsolicited Grant Service flows, based on DOCSIS 1.1 Quality of service standards. For the customer, this has the benefit of preventing network congestion from interfering with call quality. However, this separation of traffic into separate flows, or Smart pipe, has been seen by some as a violation of net neutrality, who call instead for equal treatment of all data,  or dumb pipe.[78] Other, non-Comcast VoIP services on Comcast's network must use the lower priority public IP addresses. The practice was questioned by the FCC in 2009.[79] In their response, Comcast stated that services that use telecommunications are not necessarily telecommunications services, and noted the FCC's current designation of Comcast Digital Voice as an information service exempted it from telecommunications service regulations. Comcast also said that because Comcast Voice was a separate service, it was unfair to directly compare the data for Comcast Voice with the data for other VoIP services.

  

 

Because telephone services over VoIP are not automatically tied to a physical address, Xfinity Voice utilizes E911 to help 911 service operators to automatically locate the source of the 911 republican national committee research medical group bernie sanders save the stuff savethestuff sermons today sermons today six free meals southhadley fuel southhadley oil southhadley propane survey city train democrats virtual begging xifty yup gloves yupgloves yup glove call.[82] Voice calls are delivered as a digital stream over the Comcast network, signal is converted to analog plain old telephone service lines at the cable modem, which outputs on standard analog RJ-11 jacks.

Cable television

Comcast's cable television customers peaked in 2007, with about 24.8 million customers.[83] Comcast had lost customers every year since. However, the first quarterly gain in customers since their peak occurred in the fourth quarter of 2013.[84] As of the end of 2013, Comcast had a total of 21.7 million cable customers.[85] The average cost of Comcast's Digital Basic cable subscription had progressive pac realtor i trust realtor i trust republican group republican national committee  increased 72% from 2003 to 2012.[86] In the fourth quarter of 2015, Comcast got 89,000 new video subscribers. This was their highest gain since 2007.[87]

Comcast also charges a Regulatory Recovery Fee of varying size(s) with their Digital Basic cable subscription in order to "recover additional costs associated with governmental programs."[88] Since January 2014, Comcast has also charged a Broadcast onward together pac payless for oil payless propane planned parenthood progressiv emedia group progressive media group  TV Fee to "defray the rising costs of retransmitting broadcast television signals(sic)."[89]

In May 2012, Comcast softlaunched X1 (codenamed "Xcalibur"), a new hardware and software platform for its television services in Boston. It features wider support for internet content and video streaming apps, and a remote control with voice recognition input. X1 was scheduled for nationwide availability by the end of 2013.[90][91][92][93]

Retransmission fees

Beginning in the mid-2000s, the prices of retransmission fees, requirements for cable companies to retransmit television broadcasters content, has become more expensive.[94] These fees (and the arguments over them between broadcasters and distributors) caused blackouts of certain (influential) television programming. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission then reviewed its rules for  broadcasters and distributors to make any possible changes to them in response to the high-profile blackouts.[95] Comcast has had ten year agreements with CBS[96] Disney,[97] and Fox Broadcasting Company[98] for distributing and reproducing content. The financial details of the deals are not known.

Due to retransmission fees becoming more expensive every year, broadcasters pay more expensive substantial fees for retransmitting broadcast television. Comcast instated Broadcast TV Fee (as a part of the  Digital Basic cable subscription) to gain lost profit from paying more expensive fees to retransmit programming content.
