Comcast is expanding its next-generation network, the Xfinity 10G Network, to serve more residents in Mead. The project will provide enhanced business products and services, and extend new fiber-rich highways to connect more homes and businesses in the community. This planned expansion adds to Comcast’s ongoing $1.2 billion investment in Colorado over the last three years.
With this expansion, Comcast will provide multi-gig broadband internet speeds, video, mobile, voice, home management, and business products and services.
This webpage aims to serve as your go-to resource for updates on our construction process, FAQs and product information. We want to ensure everyone is well-informed, so please review the entire site.
As this project progresses, we want to ensure residents are well-informed and prepared. Multiple notifications via door hangers to residents and businesses will be provided in advance of any work impacting your neighborhood. The door hanger will include a phone number for you to reach out to specifically around the project in your neighborhood. Should have any questions or concerns, please contact the phone number on your door hanger.

Directional Drill – used to create an underground path for the network
Potholes – created as a safety procedure during the locate work to visibly confirm where utilities lines are underground. The holes are backfilled temporarily until a permanent patch is made, usually within 24 hours.
Pedestal – an enclosure securing our network connections
Construction sites are area locations with advanced warning devices such as signs and cones. This is to prepare the public of upcoming construction ahead. Please be patient throughout this evolution of installation, many crewmen and woman will be onsite on or near drivable surfaces so a precautionary slow transition through the work zone is appreciated for ours and your safety!
To provide Comcast service in your community, our team needs to place above ground connection points that link to underground fiber lines. These connection points are pedestals or peds, which are generally light green plastic housing and located in public rights of way.
Peds serve specific network engineering needs. Their above ground design and placement provides a more secure connection space and avoids service-impacting damage from water and ice. Above ground peds are also much easier and faster to service in the event of a network issue or outage.
To ensure the highest quality connection, peds need to maintain a relatively close distance to the associated home or business. The combination of these factors – in addition to staying in the public right-of-way or utility easements – creates some critical limitations on where peds can be placed.
Once work is complete in an area, restoration work will begin to make the area look like it did or better before the work began.
Comcast invests billions of dollars in our network across Colorado to ensure residents and businesses have access to the most innovative video, broadband, security, home and voice products available. Technology is at the core of what we do. We have fiber at the core of our network, and we are extending it deeper into neighborhoods and closer to homes. We’re driving the industry with our major technology partners to redefine the technologies that you use to enjoy entertainment, connect and communicate now and into the future.
