More Businesses Will Benefit from Scalable, Advanced Internet and Voice Capabilities
Comcast Business today announced it has invested in a significant expansion of its fiber-based network in Chambersburg, reaching more than 20 additional businesses directly and benefiting many more by making the network more accessible. Capable of delivering up to 100 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of network capacity, the fiber optic Ethernet network expansion will support advanced services and give Comcast the ability to give new customers, ranging from small and medium-sized organizations to large enterprises, quick access to its network.
While the Comcast Business network already serves many of Chambersburg’s businesses, this concentrated expansion deployed an additional 3.3 miles of fiber in Chambersburg’s eastern corridors. The affected area is from the intersection of Walker Road and Norland Avenue southwest along Walker Road to Phoenix Drive and northwest along Norland Avenue to Fifth Avenue, with extensions along all of Gateway Avenue and portions of Parkwood Drive and Fifth Avenue.
“This is among the most significant infrastructure investments our regional Comcast Business team has made across the Keystone Region, and we’re proud to push our network deeper into Chambersburg to help the city’s economic growth,” said Toni Murphy, regional vice president for Comcast Business.
The Keystone Region Comcast Business team last year completed the company’s first 100 Gbps network in the Eastern United States, connecting Penn State University’s data center with its Milton S. Hershey Medical Center facility. In addition to higher education facilities, medical industries, law firms and financial services institutions prevalent throughout central Pennsylvania, new technology companies are also creating a demand for access to the advanced communications solutions Comcast Business offers.
Comcast Business serves 20 of the nation’s top 25 markets and is one of the fastest-growing Ethernet providers in the nation. With a comprehensive portfolio of Ethernet options, Comcast Business serves businesses and organizations with distributed enterprises that require large amounts of bandwidth, are looking to link multiple sites or branch locations or plan to connect their offices to a third-party data center. Nationally, Comcast Business’s Ethernet services are delivered over an advanced network that spans more than 153,000 miles. Comcast Business customers thus remain on an advanced network that is quickly scalable and privately managed by an experienced team.
