Comcast broadband investment to include Delaware

October 6, 2021

Comcast Business announced Oct. 6 a two-year, $28 million investment in a major expansion of its advanced, fiber-rich network that includes Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

The buildout will invest $13 million in 2020 and $15 million in 2021, extending high-performance Ethernet, internet, advanced voice solutions and more to nearly 7,000 additional businesses, officials said.

In Delaware, Georgetown, Ocean View, Rehoboth Beach and Smyrna will get new fiber optic cable or improvement to existing services, officials said.

Ed Rowan, senior director of Comcast Business Sales Operations in Comcast’s Beltway Region, said, “The ability to offer both diversity of network and carrier is becoming increasingly important to help drive economic development and transformation. Connectivity is at the core of this, and more than ever is an integral factor as businesses expand and prepare for what’s next. Our network expansions across Comcast’s Beltway Region are the latest example of the significant technology investments we’ve made to increase the availability of our multi-gigabit Ethernet services. These investments will help foster economic development, transform our local communities, and better meet next-generation capacity needs across the region.”

The network expansion delivers speeds up to 1 gigabit per second for small and medium-sized businesses and up to 100 Gbps for larger enterprises. It will support the ability to bring new customers online quickly with advanced services, including fast business Wi-Fi for employees and guests, cybersecurity solutions, 4G LTE backup, business TV and more. Additionally, businesses of all sizes now will have access to a comprehensive portfolio of Comcast Business products and services to help meet the day-to-day demands that require large amounts of bandwidth, linking multiple sites or branch locations, or connecting offices to third-party data centers.
