Comcast Business Brings Multi-Gigabit Ethernet To Underserved Commercial Areas In Kent, Washington

Comcast Business today announced the expansion of its commercial fiber network, capable of bandwidth up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps), to underserved commercial areas in Kent, Washington, the sixth largest city in the state. The network build out will bring Comcast Business Ethernet services to more than 150 local businesses for the first time, providing a cost-effective solution to increase speed, scale bandwidth, or connect multiple office locations on one dedicated network.

“We are pleased that Comcast is making this investment in our community,” said Kent Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer Andrea Keikkala. “Connecting underserved commercial areas with high capacity bandwidth for their Internet and data needs is vital for our local businesses to expand and relocate, which creates more jobs and economic opportunities.”

Comcast will focus on maintaining and expanding its fiber network throughout commercial areas in the Kent Valley, located at 72 nd Avenue South from 180 th on the north side to South 196 th St on the south side. With this enhanced access to secure and reliable Ethernet, businesses of all sizes in Kent can more effectively leverage the Internet to help increase productivity, provide better customer services, streamline their supply chain, or move their IT applications to the cloud. Kent’s diverse economic base includes manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, professional services and retail companies. As these companies expand and grow, Comcast Business Ethernet can also scale to meet these evolving bandwidth consumption demands.

“While the Puget Sound region is known for its strong ties to the technology industry, some commercial areas suffer from lack of ‘last mile’ access to high-speed Internet and data, limiting the ability for resident companies to achieve their full potential,” said Matt Fassnacht, Vice President of Comcast Business for Washington. “This expansion will help companies in Kent to grow and expand their businesses, while helping to increase operational efficiency.”
