Comcast and the Town of Wellington recently agreed for Comcast to extend its network to bring Xfinity and Comcast Business services to the homes and businesses throughout Wellington.

This planned expansion adds to Comcast’s more than $1.2 billion investment into network and technology advancements throughout Colorado over the last three years. Construction of the new fiber-rich highway began earlier in May 2023, and Comcast will begin connecting residents and businesses in the Fall.

With this expansion, Comcast will provide Xfinity’s full suite of services including multi- gigabit Internet speeds over its fiber network, Xfinity Mobile, Xfinity Stream, Xfinity Voice, Xfinity Home Security, and Comcast Business products and services. 

“The addition of Comcast as a broadband service provider to Wellington’s portfolio is essential to our commitment to responsible growth for our residents,” Wellington Trustee Brian Mason said. “Gigabit broadband speeds and fiber-to-the-home are essential services that will improve infrastructure and service delivery to the future of our wonderful Town.”

“Connecting our communities to what matters most is part of our Comcast DNA,” said J.D. Keller, Sr. Vice President for Comcast Mountain West Region. “We are proud to partner with the Town of Wellington to bring our fast, reliable and secure fiber network and the full breadth of our Xfinity and Comcast Business services to residents and businesses in this community.”

Comcast’s commitment to new communities goes beyond the build — addressing digital opportunities in communities through Project UP, the company’s $1 billion dollar commitment to help tens of millions of people connect to the Internet and build futures of unlimited possibilities. Over the last three years, Comcast invested more than $40 million in cash and in-kind charitable contributions to Colorado nonprofits to help provide hands on digital skills training, offer workforce development/readiness workshops and other tech education to students, adults and people with disabilities. The funding also supports ongoing efforts to build awareness about affordable connectivity services like Internet Essentials, which offers eligible households high-speed internet for $9.99/month or Internet Essentials Plus for $29.95/month. Affordable computers are also available through Internet Essentials.

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.
