Xfinity’s parent company, Comcast, is a global technology company that offers internet, TV and streaming, mobile, home and phone services.
According to the timeline of company history, Comcast was founded in 1963 when Ralph J. Roberts, an entrepreneur, purchased a community antenna television system in Tupelo, Mississippi, which was named American Cable Systems. In 1969, the company was renamed Comcast Corporation and incorporated in Pennsylvania. The company went public in 1972 and listed on the NASDAQ stock market for the first time. By 1988, Comcast had become the nation’s fifth largest cable company.
In 2011, Comcast and General Electric completed their transaction to form NBCUniversal, LLC., in which Comcast acquired a 51% stake. Two years later, Comcast announced the acquisition of GE’s 49% stake and celebrated its 50th anniversary as a company.
With Xfinity, Comcast’s mission is “to provide the best in Internet, entertainment, voice, mobile and home management, all working together to give customers instant access to the things that matter most – anywhere, anytime”. Xfinity Home is an integral part of this technology system, working best when powered by Xfinity Internet and combined with other technology services from the same parent company.
