Comcast Announces 'Advanced Communities Network' for Multifamily Properties

Philadelphia, PA.

Xfinity Communities will deliver gigabit speed solutions, video, home security and automation, and Wi-Fi using either fiber or coax.

Comcast today unveiled a new suite of fiber-based products and services – Xfinity’s Advanced Communities Network (ACN) – tailored specifically for multifamily properties within its residential footprint. 

To help multifamily builders and owners compete today and into the future, ACN provides move-in ready gigabit-capable solutions over fiber or coax in existing buildings, greenfields, high-rises or single-family home communities; virtually eliminating the hassle of retrofitting current wiring. In addition to fast Internet speeds, ACN powers the full portfolio of Xfinity products including the innovative X1 platform, the fastest in-home Wi-Fi, Xfinity Home security and automation and digital voice.

The services will be sold and delivered to customers by a newly branded sales team within Comcast Cable – Xfinity Communities – dedicated to providing Xfinity services to the multifamily industry. The group currently has more than 1,000 sales and support personnel and serves approximately 14 million homes.

"With our X1 platform, a network that can deliver speeds of a gigabit or faster, fast Wi-Fi and integrated home security/automation, ACN provides property owners with a solution that will have their residents asking to live in an ‘Xfinity Community’ for years to come," said Michael Slovin, vice president, Xfinity Communities. "We understand that no two locations are exactly the same. So, to make it easy for owners to partner with us and to provide the best possible service, we’re delivering ACN using the infrastructure technology that works best for each unique property."

Xfinity Communities also offers Xfinity Amenity Services, giving owners and developers the opportunity to provide customized Xfinity services as a differentiating feature for their residents. Today’s amenity services include Xfinity TV, Internet, X1, Xfinity WiFi for lobbies, event rooms, fitness centers, pools and more.
