PLYMOUTH—Comcast Corp. announced that it has completed a $4 million network expansion throughout South Lyon that enables the connectivity provider to offer its full suite of business and residential products and services. The new build passes 59 additional businesses and 3,585 homes.
The city-wide expansion follows investments made in 2017 and 2018 when Comcast first entered South Lyon by expanding its fiber-based network to 90 buildings in various industrial and office parks. Capable of delivering up to 100 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of network capacity, the fiber network provides businesses access to Ethernet, Internet and advanced voice solutions that help meet the day-to-day demands of organizations requiring large amounts of bandwidth, looking to link multiple sites or branch locations, or planning to connect their offices to a third-party data center.
Xfinity Internet customers have access to Xfinity xFi, a free platform that lets residential customers easily optimize and evaluate their in-home Wi-Fi performance, view connected devices, pause Wi-Fi access for any device and set usage rules. As consumers add more connected devices into their homes, Comcast has introduced xFi Advanced Security which monitors, blocks and informs residential customers of online threats to any smart device connected to WiFi.
“Connectivity has become the center of the digital home and business, and Comcast is redefining what both consumers and businesses should expect from their broadband provider,” said Tim Collins, senior vice president of Comcast’s Heartland Region, which includes Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky. “We’re looking forward to serving South Lyon and bringing the best technology to the community.”
