How is Comcast Business handling response planning?
Comcast maintains a cross-functional COVID-19 Steering Committee to address business, customer, and employee concerns. Led by the CEO of Comcast Cable, this team includes representatives from human resources (including our Chief Medical Officer), communications, legal, environmental health and safety, global security services, and information technology. Leaders from across Comcast are working to update our existing business continuity and disaster response plans to be consistent with what is known about the nature of the COVID-19 virus and its spread.
Does Comcast Business have a business continuity plan in place?
Comcast builds resiliency into our operations by strengthening our network against hazards and including key redundancies that expedite our recovery capabilities. Our employees engage in an active program of planning, training, and conducting exercises to prepare themselves to respond and ensure business can continue when certain events/disasters occur, which could be, for example, a natural or human-made disaster. These exercises are designed to help identify opportunities for further improvements. Comcast leverages our broad geographic footprint, strategic partnerships, and deep, multi-disciplinary expertise to create mutually supportive layers of response capabilities.
How is Comcast Business preparing its network?
Comcast has engineered our network—which serves both Business and Residential customers—for peak bandwidth utilization with capacity to handle spikes and shifts in usage patterns (such as the Olympics, the Super Bowl or major gaming updates) as we see such spikes regularly. We continuously test, monitor, and enhance our network to prepare events, and we’re taking every step to ensure our customers continue to have the best possible experience using our services. Our backbone is a national, redundant network that carries traffic and interconnects with all the other major backbone providers in the U.S. If needed, we can shift traffic to alternate routes or our redundant systems.
