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.
“We’re thrilled that Comcast is doing this project in Romeoville,” said Mayor John Noak. “Having access to the latest and greatest internet technologies has a positive impact on residents and helps businesses in town thrive.”
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.
