Comcast to expand Ethernet network in Chambersburg, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Jefferson County

Thursday 7 December 2017 | 07:41 CET | News

Comcast Business invested in a significant expansion of its fibre-based network in Chambersburg, in Greater Philadelphia, New Jersey and in Jefferson County. The expanded fibre optic Ethernet network delivers up to 100 Gbps of network capacity, will support advanced services and will give Comcast the ability to give new customers quick access to its network.

While the Comcast Business network already serves many of Chambersburg’s businesses, this concentrated expansion deployed an additional 3.3 miles of fibre in Chambersburg’s eastern corridors. The affected area is from the intersection of Walker Road and Norland Avenue southwest along Walker Road to Phoenix Drive and northwest along Norland Avenue to Fifth Avenue, with extensions along all of Gateway Avenue and portions of Parkwood Drive and Fifth Avenue.

While the Comcast Business fibre network already serves thousands of the Greater Philadelphia region’s largest companies and other businesses, this concentrated expansion deploys more than 120 miles of new fibre optic cable across areas such as Center City Philadelphia; King of Prussia, PA; Mount Laurel, Princeton, Somerset and South Plainfield, NJ; and Wilmington, Del; among others.

The Comcast Business network already serves Punxsutawney in southern Jefferson County, as well as DuBois and portions of western Clearfield County and portions of Clarion County. This concentrated expansion, which began earlier this year and is expected to be completed in 1Q 2018, will deploy more than 75 miles of new fiber and will provide high-performance Ethernet, Internet and advanced voice solutions to businesses and organizations between DuBois and Brookville along the Route 322 corridor, including Reynoldsville, and between Punxsutawney and Brookville along portions of Route 536 and Route 28, including Summerville.

The Keystone Region Comcast Business team completed in 2016 the company’s first 100 Gbps network in the Eastern United States, connecting Penn State University’s data center with its Milton S. Hershey Medical Center facility. In addition to higher education facilities, medical industries, law firms and financial services institutions prevalent throughout central Pennsylvania, new technology companies are also creating a demand for access to the advanced communications solutions Comcast Business offers.
