Charleston, SC – November 13, 2019 – Comcast Business announced today that it has completed a 122-mile fiber optic network across greater Charleston, capable of delivering up to 100-gigabit-per-second (Gbps) internet speeds to organizations of all sizes. Comcast’s investment is designed to effectively support emerging technologies and the mission critical data transfers that today’s businesses require.
“Comcast has a strong history of collaboration with and investment in Charleston,” said Jason Gumbs, Comcast Regional SVP. “With today’s announcement, we are proud to offer the fastest internet speeds to the most businesses in the region, which nicely positions Charleston as a true smart city.”
The new service can also be used by businesses that need a redundant – or second network – to support business continuity in the event of adverse weather. This could be especially helpful during hurricane season, when severe conditions typically cause power outages or makes office buildings inaccessible.
