Comcast to Expand Fiber Network in Downtown Houston

Houston, TXComcast Corporation, a provider of information and communications products and services, announced an expansion of its fiber network in downtown Houston. This proactive infrastructure investment will give more than 3,000 small- and mid-sized businesses access to a wide range of Business Class Ethernet, Internet, voice and value-added cloud services. This investment is in response to strong demand for Comcast’s Business Class offerings and supports broader community efforts to expand the city’s telecommunications and information technology infrastructure.

“Houston continues to grow and draw in new businesses that are going to need the tools necessary to flourish in today’s tech-savvy environment,” said Houston Mayor Annise Parker. “Comcast’s network investment supports this, allowing businesses in Houston to further prepare themselves for tomorrow in addition to attracting other new companies that require these services to serve their own customers effectively.”

Comcast Business Services will be extending its fiber network downtown and into a number of multi-tenant office buildings including Chase Tower, the largest building in the state. This is the direct result of Comcast’s ongoing investment in making its advanced network broadly available to meet the high-speed, high-capacity needs of business customers. Expected to be completed in early 2013, the project will expand Comcast’s network reach to an additional 3,000 Houston businesses in a variety of different industries.

The Houston project is part of a larger effort by Comcast Business Services to pursue network expansions in targeted metro regions to expand its fiber footprint and the reach of its services to more small and mid-sized businesses. The fiber network is fully managed by Comcast from the first mile to the last mile, providing customers with reliability, security and faster speeds.
