PITTSBURGH, Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Comcast today announced it is significantly upgrading and expanding the reach of its network serving Preston County, West Virginia and will pass approximately 470 rural homes and businesses with 31 miles of new fiber construction to bring broadband service to its current video-only customers in the Rowlesburg area and new customers to the north and east.
Upon completion of the project by Fall 2022, residential customers will have access to all Xfinity services, including Xfinity Internet; Internet Essentials for qualifying low-income families at $9.95 per month; the award-winning Xfinity X1 video platform; Xfinity Home; Xfinity Voice; and Xfinity Mobile.
