Partnering for Broadband Network Expansion

Our goal is simple: keep our customers connected - always - and deliver reliable, gig-speed internet to as many Americans as possible. Nationally over the past five years and across our service area, Comcast has:


Invested $20 billion to evolve and grow our network


Deployed multi-gig speed service to 15 million homes and businesses


Quadrupled overall network capacity


Doubled our fiber miles

A great experience regardless of the wire

A key advantage of our network is that, regardless of the type of wire that connects the home, we can deliver a reliable, ultra-fast, and secure connection to our residential and business customers today and scale it for the needs of tomorrow. 

Over our fiber-rich network we use both fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and hybrid fiber coax (HFC) technologies to deliver data to customers. Whether it’s our existing HFC or new FTTH, we’re building a single, brilliant network—one capable of unprecedented real time visibility, that leverages AI/ML, that can fix problems before customers are even aware—which is universal, running off the same cutting-edge architecture and innovation no matter what wire runs to a customer’s home or business.

A trusted partner for your community’s broadband connection needs

Experience connecting those who need it the most

Around the country, state and local officials are partnering with Comcast to deliver broadband internet to homes and businesses in their communities.

Our partnership with Comcast – the first of its kind in Cumberland County and New Jersey – will allow us to extend network access quickly and in a cost-effective way to our constituents. We are proud to set this example and provide a model for other rural towns to fill broadband deployment gaps in their communities.
