WinnCompanies and Comcast today announced a 10-year collaboration to upgrade more than 30 of Winn's multi-family communities located in the Greater Boston, Connecticut, Pittsburgh and Washington D.C. areas with fiber-based technology services. This brings the number of Winn properties who have partnered with Comcast to more than 100.

WinnCompanies, the nation's fifth-largest multi-family management company, will leverage Xfinity Communities' Advanced Communities Network (ACN) to provide residents with some of the industry's fastest Internet and Wi-Fi speeds, next-generation Video and the X1 Entertainment Operating System, and digital Phone service.

"Our residents expect the fastest speeds and the most entertainment options at their fingertips," said John Tarrant, vice president, Procurement and Sustainability, WinnCompanies. "Comcast has been a great partner to us and the fiber-based suite of services they are providing through ACN will help our properties continue to be a great place to live for years to come."

In addition to being able to deliver the full suite of Xfinity products, property management and residents will benefit from a dedicated point of contact for technical support and sales. These dedicated support personnel will serve as a concierge to Xfinity by helping to coordinate installations, troubleshoot disruptions, process service changes and assist with move in, move out and property transfers.

"We're thrilled to be working with WinnCompanies, a nationally recognized brand within the multi-family space, to provide a fiber-based solution that will deliver world-class entertainment and communications capabilities," said Michael Slovin, vice president, Xfinity Communities. "Customer experience is our top priority and the model that we are deploying at Winn properties - dedicated support that residents and facilities management can contact directly - will take the service we provide to a whole new level."

In 2014, Comcast's Xfinity Communities unit unveiled a new suite of fiber-based products and services - Advanced Communities Network - tailored specifically for multi-family properties. ACN provides move-in ready gigabit-capable solutions over fiber or coax in existing buildings, greenfields, high-rises or single-family home communities; virtually eliminating the hassle of retrofitting current wiring. In addition to fast Internet speeds, ACN powers the full portfolio of Xfinity products including the innovative X1 platform, the fastest in-home Wi-Fi, Xfinity Home security and automation and digital voice.
