Comcast Business announced plans today to invest in a significant expansion of its Boston metro fiber reach. They will be spending some $25M on the buildout, which will extend the company's reach both for Ethernet connectivity and for its voice and video offerings to the business community.
Comcast Business is already in Boston of course, but plans to deploy 40 new route miles of new fiberoptic cable throughout the Back Bay and the Financial District, and also on the other side of the river through parts of Cambridge. The expansion will bring Comcast alongside some 3,000 additional businesses.
Meanwhile, earlier this week Comcast Business also announced some interesting progress in Philadelphia. They will be providing 100Mbps Ethernet connectivity to the start-up and tech community at The Microsoft Reactor in the University City Science Center. That's at uCity Square at 3711 Market Street, a few blocks from both the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel and a local hub for entrepreneurs and such.Cable · Metro fiber
