MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Sept. 7, 2017) – Comcast Business today announced it has established a new fiber optic Point of Presence (PoP) at Expedient’s Memphis data center. This connectivity will offer customers of Expedient, a cloud computing and data center infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider, access to Comcast Business’ 10-gigabit fiber network in Memphis. The Ethernet service will provide businesses, schools, hospitals and government organizations with highly scalable and ultra-fast connectivity.
