Adding to its investment in Connecticut, Comcast has expanded its smart, fast and reliable fiber-rich network to more than 2,600 residents and businesses in Plainfield. This follows Comcast’s announcement last May that it would expand to nearly 2,500 residents and businesses in Jewett City, where it provides its full suite of services, including Xfinity residential broadband speeds up to 1.2 gigabits per second and Comcast Business speeds up to 100 Gbps, to its newest customers.
Comcast is scheduled to complete these expansion projects in Plainfield and Jewett City sometime this year. With these combined projects, Comcast will expand its network to 5,100 additional homes and businesses in Eastern Connecticut.
Comcast’s most recent expansions are part of the company’s latest investment in Connecticut, which also includes expansions to East Lyme, New London and Waterford. In addition, Comcast announced a network expansion to nearly 100 unserved businesses in the North End of Hartford. These projects add to the $312 million in technology and infrastructure investments the company made from 2019-2021 across the state.
“We have committed to investing in and expanding our network to ensure that more residents and businesses in Connecticut have the connectivity they need to succeed,” said Carolyne Hannan, SVP of Comcast’s Western New England Region, which is based in Connecticut. “We are proud to provide Plainfield with fast, secure, and reliable Internet services that are built to meet the community’s needs today and into the future.”
Residents and businesses in Plainfield and Jewett City can visit Xfinity.com, call 1-800-XFINITY or visit its store at 220 CT-12 in Groton to see if service is available. Experts at the Xfinity Store can help with product demonstrations and answer questions consumers may have and can help local businesses schedule an informational meeting with the Comcast Business sales team.
Residential customers in these areas will be able to take advantage of Xfinity’s full suite of internet products, including supersonic Wi-Fi technology from powerful gateways, xFi Advanced Security, Xfinity Mobile and the Flex, a 4K platform for internet-only customers that seamlessly delivers streaming content.
