Comcast Business Provides Economic Growth Engine In Tennessee’s Williamson County With Its Network

Comcast Business, a unit of Comcast Cable, the nation's largest video, high-speed Internet and phone provider to business and residential customers, today announced that its network, available throughout Williamson County, including dedicated connections to more than 100 office buildings, is helping the fastest growing county in Tennessee to remain competitive. Comcast Business’s comprehensive portfolio of business services benefits 1,500 local businesses and serves as critical technology infrastructure to help attract new ones.

More than 6,000 businesses are based in the metro Nashville area with more relocating there due to the educated workforce, positive business climate, and high quality of life. Williamson County has benefited from this trend and established a thriving business community and proven track record of attracting various Fortune 1000 companies. Comcast’s advanced network provides local businesses with high-performance bandwidth options. Comcast Business delivers Ethernet, Internet, advanced voice, video, and cloud services, ranging from a broadband connection for a small business up to a scalable, high-capacity Ethernet network service that can scale up to 10 Gbps.

“By investing in the technology infrastructure in Williamson County, we hope to support the continued growth of each of the businesses in this community,” said Bob Deckard, regional vice president of Comcast Business. “With more than 1,000 Comcast employees in the metro Nashville area, we are committed to providing business in Williamson County and the surrounding area with advanced network services.”

Local Economic Impact of Broadband

Businesses increasingly rely on high capacity bandwidth and Internet connectivity to help improve productivity, support the shift to cloud-based IT services, and drive overall growth. Increasingly, technology infrastructure plays a key role in Williamson County’s economic growth as businesses make network connectivity options a key decision criterion when deciding on their office locations.

“Although we are only 10 percent of the population in the region, Williamson County has accounted for 30 percent of the growth in the last five years, and we expect that trend to continue,” said Jeremiah Pyron, Office of Economic Development, Williamson County. “Businesses today are so dependent on bandwidth that network infrastructure is a critical factor when they are picking new office locations or expanding existing ones. We view network providers like Comcast as foundational to the future success and economic growth of our County.”
