Comcast Business mounts 100G fiber-optic network expansion in Tallahassee, FL

Aug. 30, 2016
Comcast expands fiber network capable of 100-gigabit speeds designed to support Tallahassee’s business community. Multi-million dollar investment will provide fastest speeds to Tallahassee businesses, government agencies, schools and hospitals.

Comcast Business announced that it has expanded its fiber network in Tallahassee, Florida to offer local businesses Ethernet services with speeds up to 100 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) and a variety of other services, including internet, voice and TV services and cloud-based computing capabilities. The expanded service offerings will support Tallahassee’s developing business climate, which landed it among the top 200 U.S. cities on the Forbes Magazine List for “Best Places for Businesses and Careers.”

“In today’s increasingly digital world, internet access and speed are critical to operations for businesses of all sizes and across all industries,” said Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. “The expansion of Comcast’s high-speed network will serve as a strong contributor to the continued business and job growth we are seeing in our City, and overall the development of Tallahassee’s new economy.”

Comcast says its advanced network "is geared for businesses that need bandwidth to move large amounts of data for operations like video conferencing, streaming, multiple users on a Wi-Fi network, file sharing and back-up, and cloud-based applications. In addition, the network is capable of connecting multiple locations of one company to provide the same level of service across its network. Comcast’s services can also be used by businesses that need a redundant or second network for business continuity and to provide file access, back-up and recovery in the event of a disaster. This can be particularly critical to Florida businesses during hurricane season when severe weather can cause power outages or make office buildings inaccessible.

Comcast has been delivering multi-gig (up to 10 Gbps) Ethernet service to businesses in Florida since 2011, and last year began offering Gigabit Pro, a residential multi-gigabit broadband service for consumers in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Jacksonville areas. In April, Comcast announced that it will offer DOCSIS 3.1-powered gigabit internet service in Florida using connections that are already in customers’ homes.

“Our network not only delivers the highest speed and capacity to Tallahassee businesses, it’s also built to easily accommodate future growth,” said Reggie Scales, vice president, business services for the Comcast Florida Region. “Multi-gigabit speeds and reliability are critical for business today, and those needs are growing exponentially.”
