The speeds of two existing high-speed Internet tiers have doubled

Comcast is adding some speed to its Internet services this week at no extra charge to its customers. 
 
According to the cable and Internet provider, it's doubling the speeds of two of its Internet tiers: Xfinity Blast!, which will go from speeds of 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps, and Extreme 50, which will go from speeds of 50 Mbps to 105 Mbps. 
 
"More customers are simultaneously connecting to the Internet through tablets, laptops and smartphones within their homes," said Cathy Avgiris, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Data and Communications Services at Comcast. "Whether it's to stream movies, upload photos, video chat with family and friends, or catch all of the Olympics action live on their tablets and connected devices, we want to ensure these customers are getting the speeds they need. 
 
"We will continue to increase speeds as customer demands evolve. Comcast is committed to providing our customers with even more choices to get the best, fastest and most reliable experience possible."
 
Comcast also announced its latest Internet plan, Xfinity Platinum Internet. This new addition features download speeds of up to 305 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 65 Mbps as well as free Xfinity Signature Support.
 
The two existing tiers will double their speeds this week at no extra charge while Xfinity Platinum Internet will launch in certain Northeast markets like Boston, Hartford, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Richmond, New Jersey and Wilmington.

Was paying 73 a month through Comcast for internet then it just went up to 83 a month... But my internet is the same speed as before.

When I called them up to ask why I received no good answer... such as "this is just what happens sometimes." "I'm not sure why this is an issue." "I don't think anything is wrong with your account." When I talked to a manager they said if I can't afford it I should cut back on spending else where.

This has nothing to do with being able to afford the change, I just wanted to get an answer on why it changed. So I think I'll be switching to frontier as that has just as good of options where I live.
