PLYMOUTH — Comcast Business announced it has completed a two-year, $8.3 million expansion of its fiber-based network in Michigan that adds more than 70 miles of fiber to 1,260 buildings housing 2,260 business tenants across southeastern Michigan.
The newly served areas include Midtown Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing.
This network investment complements the company’s average $240 million capital expenditure spent per year in Michigan over the past three years.
The network is capable of delivering speeds up to 100 gigabits per second. The project is also the largest single concentrated fiber expansion Comcast has ever undertaken in Michigan.
“These network investments will provide a great business advantage to companies of all sizes and industries,” Tim Collins, senior vice president of Comcast in Michigan, said in a press release. “Our customers’ bandwidth needs typically double every three years. By putting fiber in the ground now, we’ll be ready to meet their growing demands for speed and bandwidth, particularly as more customers move to cloud-based applications and require the fast download and upload speeds that we provide.”
