Comcast Partners with Delaware to Connect More Than 2,600 Unserved Homes and Businesses


  • On October 26, 2023, Comcast announced it completed its expansion to bring its Xfinity 10G Network to more than 2,600 additional homes and businesses in Delaware – including rural parts of Sussex County. The expansion was completed ahead of schedule and took less than 12 months.
  • Comcast joined state leaders including Governor John Carney and the Delaware Department of Technology and Information to celebrate the milestone and highlight next steps in its continued partnership to connect more residents and businesses across the state.  


  • The expansion was enabled in part by funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and is a great example of a public-private partnership to connect rural communities and accelerate economic growth.  
  • This expansion delivers the full suite of Xfinity residential and Comcast Business services, including broadband Internet speeds of up to 1.2 gigabits per second (Gbps) for residences and up to 100 Gbps for businesses.


  • Comcast Business recently completed a $28M investment to expand its network to businesses throughout the region, including in Delaware communities such as Georgetown, Ocean View, Rehoboth Beach and Smyrna.
  • Comcast has supported more than 30 Delaware nonprofits in recent years – and was recognized as a “Corporate Citizen of the Year” by Delaware’s Latin American Community Center at its annual Grand Ball in Wilmington on October 20, 2023.
    • This includes launching 13 Lift Zones in Delaware, which provide free WiFi service to local community centers to promote digital learning.
  • Comcast is continuing efforts to connect low-income Delaware residents to the Internet at home through Internet Essentials and the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).

In partnership with Governor Carney and the Department of Technology and Information, Comcast is proud to complete the expansion of its Xfinity 10G Network to thousands of additional homes and businesses in rural Delaware,” said Michael Parker, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Beltway Region. “This is a great example of a public-private partnership that will not only help bridge the digital divide in rural Delaware, but also help fuel innovation and economic growth for decades to come.”
