Comcast Completes Network Expansion in Belmont and Jefferson Counties Strengthening Eastern Ohio Presence

After announcing its recent expansion in Mahoning County, Ohio, Comcast today announced it has completed the expansion of its fast, reliable, fiber-rich network to more than 700 homes and businesses in Belmont and Jefferson Counties in Eastern Ohio. Now serving Irondale, Knox, Richmond, and Union Townships, residents in these areas have access to Xfinity broadband speeds up to 2 gigabits per second (Gbps) while companies have access to Comcast Business speeds up to 100 Gbps.

“Broadband access is an essential source of connection for both residents and businesses. Comcast’s investment in Union Township and Belmont County is an investment in the future of our local communities and one that will make a powerful impact here,” said Shane Kildow, Union Township Trustee.

Residents can visit and businesses can visit to see if their address is eligible for service. In addition, residents and businesses can visit local Xfinity stores at 219 Summit Park Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15275 or 215 Cabela Drive, Triadelphia, WV 26059.

“As the world becomes more connected, residents and businesses need fast, reliable Internet they can count on,” said Ricky Frazier Jr., Senior Vice President for Comcast’s Keystone Region. “At Comcast we don’t take for granted the opportunity to offer connections to customers, companies, and communities to help areas like Belmont and Jefferson Counties thrive.”

In addition to expanding its network locally, Comcast also works with The Bay Six Project, located at 618 Commercial Street, Mingo Junction, OH 43938 as part of its community investment commitment. The Bay Six Project is a Lift Zone and part of Project UP, Comcast’s $1 billion commitment to advance digital equity through programs and community partnerships that connect people to the Internet, advance economic mobility, and open doors for the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, storytellers, and creators.

“Comcast is a key part of our community,” said Stacy Westfall of The Bay Six Project. “Their efforts have made a positive impact, enabling us to serve more people and communities locally. We’re excited for them to bring their network to nearby homes and businesses and look forward to our continued work together.”
