Comcast Business is excited to announce a multi-million dollar investment in the expansion of its fiber-based network in Washington, D.C., reaching more than 300 additional buildings and directly benefiting hundreds of more businesses by making the network more accessible. Capable of delivering up to 100 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of network capacity, the fiber optic Ethernet network expansion supports advanced services and gives Comcast Business the ability to give new customers, ranging from small and medium-sized organizations to large enterprises, quick access to its network.
“We know that D.C. is a great place to do business, and investments like these keep us at the top of our game,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “As our local businesses continue to grow and thrive, we thank Comcast for their commitment to providing the cutting-edge resources that keep us competitive and help us attract and retain world-class people, ideas, and organizations.”
While the Comcast Business network already serves many of the District’s largest companies and hundreds of businesses, this expansion has deployed additional miles of new fiber in Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle, Logan Circle and Franklin Square neighborhoods, which include both aerial and underground Ethernet extensions, connecting businesses along Connecticut Avenue, Massachusetts Avenue, Rhode Island Avenue, New Hampshire Avenue, New York Avenue, Vermont Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue.
“As demand for our high-performance Ethernet offerings continues to soar, we’re proud to bring our advanced network deeper into Washington, D.C., to help the economic growth of the city and region,” said Juan Dominguez, Vice President, Comcast Business for Comcast’s Beltway Region. “We’ve invested heavily in building an infrastructure that meets the high-speed, high-capacity needs of business customers in the District, and we look forward to continuing to launch new and innovative services that exceed their expectations well into the future.”
Comcast Business serves 20 of the nation’s top 25 markets and is one of the fastest-growing Ethernet providers in the nation. With a comprehensive portfolio of Ethernet options, Comcast Business serves businesses and organizations with distributed enterprises that require large amounts of bandwidth, are looking to link multiple sites or branch locations or plan to connect their offices to a third-party data center. Nationally, Comcast Business’s Ethernet services are delivered over an advanced network that spans more than 153,000 miles. Comcast Business customers thus remain on an advanced network that is quickly scalable and privately managed by an experienced team.
