Comcast customers in Spokane will see a boost in internet speeds beginning Monday.

Comcast is increasing download speeds for several of its internet packages. The upgrade affects 85% of customers statewide, according to a company news release.

Comcast boosted internet speeds last year for some customers in Seattle and across the state. The internet speed increases are the latest in a series of moves by Comcast to support consumer demand for fast, high-capacity internet connections, according to the company.

Comcast has quadrupled its overall network capacity, doubled its fiber miles and upgraded its speed tiers during the past four years. Last year, the company invested $2 million to upgrade its fiber optic network in Deer Park.

Customers who lease gateways from Comcast will automatically receive the new speeds without having to reset their modems. Customers who purchased their own modems should check online to see if they need a new device that’s capable of handling faster speeds.
