Pinewood Forrest to Deliver Fiber Connectivity through Comcast Partnership

  • Comcast Corporation
ATLANTA — Pinewood Forrest, a master planned residential and mixed-use development located 24 miles south of Atlanta, adjacent to Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, Georgia, has partnered with Comcast to offer up to 1 Gbps internet to residents and 10 Gbps service to businesses. The technology will deliver an online experience that will enable users to perform high-bandwidth activities with lightning-fast speeds over Comcast's advanced network.

Every homeowner in Pinewood Forrest will enjoy Comcast's gigabit-speed internet service and X1 entertainment access on all their screens. They can say it and see it with the X1 Voice Remote and get access to content on Netflix, YouTube and Pandora. Specifically, new residents will receive the Xfinity Digital Starter tier, which consists of 140 channels, the Xfinity Stream app, extensive sports programming and On Demand content, and a complimentary set top box. Multiple users in one home will easily surf the web, download files, stream movies and play games simultaneously. Residents will get complimentary Gig and TV service for a year. Comcast currently offers gigabit-speed Internet across its service footprint in greater Atlanta.

Servicing a Community of Movie professionals
Envisioned as a community for storytellers, artisans and creatives, Pinewood Forrest spans 234 acres adjacent to Pinewood Atlanta Studios, the biggest purpose-built studio complex in the U.S. outside of Los Angeles. Once complete, Pinewood Forrest will be home to 3,000 residents and accessible to those working on the Pinewood Atlanta Studios campus – up to 3,500 professionals.

The complimentary service is provided by Pinewood Forrest's Builders Guild. The Builders Guild is comprised of four local builders with a deep understanding of Pinewood Forrest's vision and the increasing importance of communications and entertainment technology in residential and mixed-use communities.

Up to 1 Gig to Residents, 10 Gig to Businesses
Comcast will offer up to 1 Gbps to the individual unit of all residents and up to 10 Gbps to shops, restaurants and businesses within Pinewood Forrest. In addition, the community's 118 acres of green space will be connected through XFINITY Wi-Fi service.

Likewise, business customers at Pinewood Forrest will leverage highly scalable and ultra-fast internet connectivity and cloud-based solutions. The network is designed to support customers that require large amounts of bandwidth or are looking to link multiple locations.

"In today's digital world, connectivity and speed are crucial, and even more so to our community of movie studio professionals," said Pinewood Forrest President Rob Parker. "As part of our unwavering commitment to developing an ambitious, creative community, Pinewood Forrest is implementing pioneering technology and infrastructure that removes obstacles and empowers residents to do their best work."

"Pinewood Forrest is among the most technologically advanced mixed-use communities in the Southeast, and the first to offer complimentary DOCSIS-based internet and X1 video services to customers during their first year of residence," said Shawn Geagan, VP for business development at Comcast. "We are thrilled that the community will also offer the largest deployment of Wi-Fi hotspots since Comcast's partnership with SunTrust Park and the Atlanta Braves, which has transformed the fan experience and created a virtually seamless online experience at the surrounding Battery Atlanta."
