Comcast Announces Rural Broadband Expansion in Washington, warns Telecompetitor

From Telecompetitor:

Comcast today announced it will expand service to 815 homes in the City of Sumas, a rural community of Whatcom County. Over the next two years, Comcast will invest $4.2 million, to bring the entire suite of Xfinity and Comcast Business services to the citizens and businesses of Sumas.

The planned network expansion is the latest example of the company’s investment made in Washington state. Comcast has invested over $990 million in capital expenditures in Washington over the past three years, including investments in the company’s network.

“This is welcome news for Sumas residents, especially in a world where we are increasingly reliant on a broadband connection to work, learn, and teach. Washington has some of the world’s largest technology companies but too many residents still don’t have affordable and reliable internet access,” said Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01). “Bold investments like these will help families during this difficult time and beyond.”

“Thank you to Mayor Christensen and to the City Council in Sumas for working with Comcast to bring high speed internet infrastructure to the people of Sumas,” said Senator Doug Ericksen, 42nd Legislative District. “America was built by private sector innovation and private sector innovation will continue to lead in building a better Washington State for all of us.”
