[ARCHIVED] Comcast Preparing for the Future with Network Upgrade

Fiber Newsflash

Comcast recently began a network upgrade project in Romeoville that will add more fiber and support greater network capacity, speed, and performance in the future. Their network currently supports more than 1.7 million WiFi hotspots in the region (and more than 18 million nationally) and makes it possible for Comcast to deliver 1 Gigabit internet speeds to just about every home and business its network passes, along with speeds of up to 100 Gigabits for businesses in locations across Comcast’s service area.

Comcast regularly updates and enhances its more than 53,000 miles of network in its Greater Chicago Region. They have 6,500 employees in the region, with more than 180 in Romeoville alone.

While they’re making this network improvement, you may experience intermittent service interruptions. Following construction, if you’re having issues with your XFINITY® services, please call Comcast at 1-800-XFINITY (9346489). In the event construction work has disturbed landscaping or caused damage to your property, please call 1-630-808-1741.
