Comcast Business builds 10G fiber network to serve Huntsville, Ala. business sector

Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) plans to give Huntsville, Ala., businesses a new option for fiber-based services with a 10 Gbps-capable fiber network.

Local businesses and government entities will be able to get access to a mix of Ethernet and related IP-based and cloud-based voice solutions.

Business customers will get to choose from four key Ethernet services: Ethernet Private Line, Ethernet Virtual Private Line, Ethernet Network Service, and Ethernet Dedicated Internet: continuous, high-bandwidth connectivity between customers' LANs and the public Internet.

Comcast's presence will make Huntsville a more attractive spot for other businesses to locate their operations.

As a hub for the aerospace, telecom and military sectors, Huntsville is a prime target for Comcast Business to build a new 10G fiber network.

It is the home of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and the University of Alabama, and is a center for technology and engineering research in the area. A number of Fortune 500 companies like Adtran are also present.

Huntsville is one of many destinations where Comcast Business has been extending its fiber network. The provider has made similar expansions into Minnesota's Twin City area to extend services to 700 additional business customers as well as Meyers Business Park in Chico, Calif., the East Bay region of California, Denver and New London County, Conn.
