On Thursday, the company announced that its Xfinity Gigabit internet and Comcast Business Gigabit services are available to almost 58 million homes and businesses across 39 states and Washington, D.C. The company has declared that the deployment, which began in 2016, is the fastest rollout of gigabit speeds to the most homes in the United States.

The deployment, which kicked off 19 months ago, "represents the fastest rollout of gigabit speeds to the most homes in the country", according to Comcast.

Comcast said it has increased speeds 17 times in 17 years and has doubled the capacity of its broadband network every 18-24 months.

This press release features multimedia.

Xfinity Gigabit Internet and Comcast Business Gigabit services are available Thursday. Comcast offers broadband internet service in 39 states an the District of Columbia.

The company just hit a big network expansion milestone that gives it the power to connect millions of homes across the country to super fast internet speeds.

So-called cord cutters, many of whom continue to rely on broadband providers such as Comcast for internet services, have started defecting to video-streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and Youtube TV for television programming.

In May, Comcast launched a new mesh WiFi system offering, xFi Pods, which pair with either Comcast's wireless or advanced gateway to extend WiFi coverage into hard to reach places in the home.

Though AT&T (t) and Verizon (vz) already compete in some areas where Comcast (cmcsa) has its wired home Internet service, the 5G networks can-at least in theory-be offered more economically and in far more metro areas than the limited regions where the carriers have wired connections to homes. In many cases, customers don't need a service visit, as the broadband equipment comes with a simple self-installation kit.

Last year, Comcast introduced its new xFi Advanced Gateway, created to support gigabit speeds over WiFi. Comcast Cable is one of the nation's largest video, high-speed internet, and phone providers to residential customers under the XFINITY brand, and also provides these services to businesses.
