CLAREMONT, NH — Comcast Business announced that its full portfolio of multi-gigabit Ethernet services is now available across three communities in Sullivan County, New Hampshire, and Windsor County, Vermont. Capable of up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) of throughput, these services are specifically designed for businesses, hospitals, schools and other organizations requiring more capacity, looking to network multiple locations together, or planning to connect their offices to a third-party data center.

With this expansion, the communities of Claremont, New Hampshire; Windsor, Vermont; and West Windsor, Vermont, can now take advantage of four different types of Comcast Business multi-gigabit Ethernet services, including:

  • Ethernet Private Line – point-to-point connectivity between two customer sites for bandwidth-intensive applications.
  • Ethernet Virtual Private Line – a point-to-multipoint connection that allows customers to tailor capacity, performance characteristics and cost to meet the needs of their applications.
  • Ethernet Network Service – multipoint-to-multipoint connectivity to connect organizations with high-bandwidth requirements and multiple locations across Comcast’s network.
  • Ethernet Dedicated Internet – continuous, high-capacity connectivity between customers’ LANs and the public Internet.

“Whether it’s a hospital transferring large radiology files, a school offering tablets to its students for online learning, or a police department looking to monitor surveillance video feeds in real-time, capacity and performance are increasingly becoming the two main engines driving all businesses,” said Paul Savas, vice president of Comcast Business in New Hampshire and Vermont. “Our fiber expansion in these three communities is the latest example of the significant investments we’ve made to increase the availability of our Ethernet services to help foster economic development and drive competition, innovation and value for our customers residing along the shores of the Connecticut River.”

All of Comcast’s multi-gigabit Ethernet services are delivered over an advanced network that spans 140,000 miles across 39 states and the District of Columbia. Serving 20 of the top 25 U.S. markets, Comcast’s network features a 100 Gbps backbone and expanded local footprint through Ethernet over HFC. Bandwidth is available up to 10 Gbps and can be scaled in increments and offered in three different classes of service, backed by service level agreements and monitored 24x7x365 from Comcast’s dedicated network operations centers. Comcast was the first service provider in the world to offer Metro Ethernet Forum CE 2.0 certified Ethernet services and was also the first service provider to achieve all three of the previous CE 1.0 certifications (MEF 9, 14 and 18).
