Comcast Bringing Xfinity 10G Network to More Than 9,600 Homes and Businesses in Watertown

Comcast is expanding the Xfinity 10G Network to Watertown, Connecticut, delivering its full suite of Xfinity and Comcast Business services to more than 9,600 additional residents and businesses in Litchfield County by the end of 2024.

“We are committed to investing in and expanding our network to ensure that more residents and businesses in Connecticut have the connectivity they need to succeed,” said Carolyne Hannan, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Western New England Region. “Bringing our fast, secure and reliable Internet services to Watertown will ensure that more residents and businesses have additional broadband options for their educational, professional and personal lives.”

With construction already underway in Watertown, residents and businesses can visit

Xfinity.com/MyTown or visit our Xfinity Store at 920 Wolcott Street in Waterbury to see if service is available. Experts at the Xfinity Store can also help with product demonstrations, answer any questions consumers may have and help local businesses schedule an informational meeting with the Comcast Business sales team.

Residents will have access to Xfinity’s full suite of Internet products, including the company’s Internet Essentials program that provides low-cost, high-speed broadband for income constrained households.

Comcast’s most recent expansion to Watertown is part of the company’s latest investment in Connecticut. Comcast has expanded to several other Connecticut communities, including East Lyme, Jewett City, Killingly, Milford, New London, North End of Hartford, Plainfield, Putnam, Sharon and Waterford.

Powered by the Xfinity 10G Network

Comcast’s Xfinity 10G Network and Internet experience are powering homes today and into the future:  

  • Xfinity customers connect more than 1 billion devices across the company’s network annually. The Xfinity 10G Network with the next-generation Xfinity gateways deliver the most advanced WiFi technology carrying three times more bandwidth to power streaming, gaming, videoconferencing, and more, simultaneously. 
  • More than a third of Xfinity Internet customers subscribe to gigabit speed products. Recently, Comcast connected the first customers in the world to a DOCSIS 4.0 connection, delivering symmetrical gig speeds over existing connections in customers’ homes with plans to continue to rollout these speeds across the country over the coming years.
  • The latest Xfinity Gateway provides a more reliable connection throughout the home. Customers can get wall-to-wall WiFi coverage with a powerful WiFi Boost Pod that extends coverage to hard-to-reach areas of the home.  
  • Comcast is scaling the nation’s largest and most reliable network – the Xfinity 10G Network – that passes 60 million homes and business and counting. The company launched Storm-Ready WiFi, a new device that comes powered with cellular and battery backup to help keep customers connected even when the power goes out. 
  • The Xfinity 10G Network and the latest Xfinity Gateway are a powerful combination that deliver ultra-low latency for those moments when response times matter most like video games, a fast-growing category with Xfinity households averaging more than one gaming console per home. 

For local businesses, Comcast Business offers a suite of connectivity, communications, networking, cybersecurity, wireless and managed solutions to help organizations of different sizes prepare for what’s next.
