Comcast Business has completed construction on a fiber project in Virginia to provide services to an additional 2,800 businesses. Comcast Business has invested close to $100 million over the past five years to expand its network in Virginia.

"In an era where world-class broadband is more necessary than ever, we appreciate Comcast's continued commitment and investment – helping to bridge the digital divide that is impacting our students, businesses and residents," said Delegate Chris Runion, 25th House District for Virginia, in a statement.

The new fiber brings triple play services to the following communities: Bell Creek, Harrisonburg, Henrico, Richmond and parts of Northern Virginia including Ashburn, Dulles, Leesburg, Lynchburg, Manassas, Sterling and Tyson’s Corner.

“We are excited to be part of these communities and look forward to serving businesses of all sizes throughout Virginia,” said Wolf Lewis, senior director of enterprise for Comcast’s Beltway Region, in a statement. “Technology is a powerful driver of innovation, entrepreneurship and economic growth, and Comcast is prepared to meet the technology needs of businesses throughout Virginia.”
