February 29, 2024 Comcast announced today that it has completed its network expansion to Manhattan, IL.  Residents and businesses throughout the village now have access to Comcast’s full suite of Xfinity residential and Comcast Business services, including Internet speeds faster than a gig.

“State-of-the-art Internet and WiFi connectivity is crucial to schoolwork, the workplace, and almost every other aspect of our lives,” said Manhattan Chamber of Commerce President Becky Bouck. “It also helps communities attract and retain residents and businesses and drives economic growth.” 

“Comcast is proud to serve Manhattan and deepen our presence in Will County,” said Chris Smith, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region Senior Vice President.  “We’ve invested $1.4 billion in our network in Illinois over the last three years alone to increase Internet speeds, accommodate the growing number of connected devices, and deliver robust WiFi throughout our customers’ homes and businesses.”
