Comcast Kicks Off the New Year With Formal Announcement of New Speeds
-- And Unveils Plans for New Online Services for All High-Speed Internet

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast, the nation's number one
broadband provider, is upgrading its two residential speed tiers, as
it prepares to introduce a full suite of innovative online services
and products throughout 2005.

The speed enhancements include increases in both upstream and
downstream speeds to enable faster uploads and downloads of large
files (photos, videos, music), more online and multiplayer gaming,
easier home networking, and new innovative online services. These
speed increases will be offered to customers at no additional charge.

Comcast's current 3Mbps downstream / 256kbps upstream tier will be
upgraded to 4Mbps / 384kbps, and its 4Mbps downstream / 384kbps
upstream tier will jump to a faster 6Mbps / 768kbps.

The speed increases will be automatic, which means customers are not
required to download any special files or upgrade their connections.

The speed upgrades will be executed on a market-by-market basis, and
are targeted to be complete by the end of Q1 2005.
