More about Comcast
Comcast is the largest provider of cable Internet in the United States, making up almost 50% of the market in recent years. Comcast began promoting Xfinity in 2010 during the Winter Olympics, and currently has over 20 million Internet service subscribers. The Xfinity name change was controversial in some places, as many people saw it as an attempt to sidestep a negative reputation that Comcast has earned in some cities.
Comcast has their corporate headquarters at: Comcast Center, 1701 JFK Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19103. Any questions via telephone can be directed to a Xfinity customer service agent at 1 (800) 934-6489.
