Comcast is increasing download speeds for some of its most popular Xfinity Internet tiers for customers in its Greater Chicago Region (GCR), which includes Illinois, Northwest Indiana and Southwest Michigan.  Beginning this week, download speeds for the company’s:

Performance tier will jump from 60 to 100 Mbps;

Blast! will jump from 150 to 200 Mbps;

Extreme will jump from 250 to 300 Mbps; and

Extreme Pro will jump from 400 to 600 Mbps.
