Comcast Expands to Westmore, VT

Comcast announces expansion of smart, fast, reliable fiber-based network to Westmore, delivering its full suite of Xfinity and Comcast Business services to more than 400 additional residents and businesses in Orleans County by the end of the year.

“Access to advanced broadband is a powerful driver of innovation and economic growth and Comcast is committed to investing in and expanding our network in Vermont,” said Carolyne Hannan, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s New England Region. “Bringing our fast, secure and reliable Internet services to Westmore will ensure that more residents and businesses have additional broadband options for their educational, professional and personal lives, making the community an even more attractive destination to live and visit.”

With construction already underway in Westmore, residents and businesses can visit to see if service is available to their location.

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 expansion to Westmore is part of the company’s latest investment in Vermont, where the company has invested more than $93 million in technology and infrastructure over the last three years – including upgrades to its local network and the completion of a project to expand services to more than 2,000 additional homes and businesses in nine communities across the Green Mountain State.

Comcast’s network and Internet experience are powering homes today and into the future.

  • Ultimate Capacity: Xfinity customers connect more than 1 billion devices across the company’s network annually. With the next-generation Xfinity gateways we deliver the most advanced WiFi technology carrying three times more bandwidth to power streaming, gaming, videoconferencing, and more, simultaneously. 
  • Fastest Internet: 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.
  • Unprecedented Coverage: 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. 
  • Most Reliable Connection: Comcast is scaling the nation’s largest and most reliable network that passes 62 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. 
  • Ultra-Low Latency: The Xfinity 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.
