Comcast expanding its broadband network services
Comcast will extend its broadband network in portions of southern Clearfield County and northern Cambria County, Sen. Wayne Langerholc Jr., R-Cambria, and Rep. Tommy Sankey, R-Clearfield, announced.
As a result of Comcast’s investment, Langerholc said residential customers in these areas will have access to all Xfinity services, including residential gigabit broadband service, and businesses will receive the full suite of Comcast Business products and services, including ethernet network speeds up to 100 gigabits-per-second.
This effort will provide broadband to 3,900 rural addresses covering portions of the boroughs of Coalport, Glen Hope and Irvona and the township of Beccaria in Clearfield County and the townships of Chest, White, Dean, Clearfield and Reade in Cambria County.
Comcast expects the first of these new services to be available this fall and that availability to the entire service area will be complete in spring 2021.
