Comcast Launches Advanced Network in Somonauk, Bringing Fiber to nearly 40 Local Businesses

Comcast Business provides access to fast Internet speeds, Ethernet, Advanced Voice and Cloud Services

September 12, 2018 – Comcast Business announced today that it has built three miles of fiber network to the Somonauk, IL, business district south of West Market Street, north of County Line Road and west of South Gage Street. The district comprises nearly 40 businesses.

With the build out complete, Comcast can give small, medium and large businesses in this area access to Internet speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) – and up to 100 Gbps on a case-by-case basis – along with a wide range of services, including Ethernet, Internet, Advanced Voice and value-added cloud services. In addition, as a result of the expansion, Comcast can bring new customers online quickly.

“We appreciate Comcast’s investment in Somonauk’s business community and economy,” said Somonauk Village President Aaron Grandgeorge. “The availability of some of the fastest internet speeds on the market along with advanced tech services puts Somonauk in the same class as other communities competing for businesses and jobs.”

“Our advanced network provides increased bandwidth and that means more businesses can do more, like access more applications and services in the cloud, accommodate rapidly increasing numbers of employees in the field using mobile devices and exchange large amounts of data with business partners,” said Jay Dirkmaat, Comcast Business Regional Vice President.

All of Comcast Business’ multi-Gigabit Ethernet services are delivered over an advanced network that serves 20 of the nation’s 25 largest markets and spans 149,000 miles across 39 states and the District of Columbia. Comcast Business was the first service provider in the world to offer Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) CE 2.0 certified Ethernet services and was also the first to achieve all three of the previous CE 1.0 certifications (MEF 9, 14 and 18).
