Comcast Finalizes Fiber Network Expansion in Downtown New Haven, CT

NEW HAVEN, CT — Comcast Business announced that it has completed a nearly $1.7 million fiber optic network expansion project in downtown New Haven, Connecticut. Comcast’s high-performance network is now delivering up to 10 Gbps of Ethernet capacity to more than seven businesses located between Tower Lane and State Street, giving companies a competitive edge as well as the ability to attract new employees.

As the second largest city in the state and home to Yale University, New Haven is a hub for entrepreneurs and established businesses. Comcast’s investment delivers high-performance, reliable Ethernet, internet, advanced voice, Wi-Fi and TV solutions to small- and medium-sized companies and large enterprises with the flexibility to scale services as business needs change.

Top Business Technology Infrastructure
“New Haven is a unique city in Connecticut – located on Long Island Sound, not far from New York and home to one of the oldest, most prestigious schools in the country – making it the ideal location for small and medium-sized organizations to large enterprises to operate,” said Mayor Toni Harp, City of New Haven. “Comcast’s investment strengthens our local economy by offering businesses the technology infrastructure needed to better service customers and the community.”

The new expansion impacts the bustling downtown areas along Church, Orange, Audubon, Elm, State, and Temple streets as well as on Tower Lane. The new infrastructure and internet capacity can help drive greater economic growth and development in these neighborhoods adjacent to Yale University, Yale New Haven Hospital and New Haven’s Union Station, one of the largest transportation centers in the city.

Attracting New Jobs
“New Haven has earned a well-deserved reputation as a hub for innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven). “With new businesses and startups moving into the city, this upgrade of our fiber optic network will enhance New Haven’s competitive edge in attracting new jobs to the region.”

“Speed of communication is a top priority for business and Comcast is hitting it head on,” said Tony Rescigno, President of the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce. “Their efforts are helping to solve key concerns of business which will, in turn, help build our state’s economy.”
