MEMPHIS, Tenn. – September 29, 2017 – Comcast Business today announced an expansion of a multi-million dollar fiber optic network designed to deliver 10-gigabit speeds to the Greater Memphis business community. The network is being extended to serve businesses and government offices in Collierville, Tenn., and Tunica, Miss., offering highly scalable and ultra-fast Internet connectivity, Wi-Fi and cloud-based voice solutions.
Specifically, the Town of Tunica has selected Comcast Business Ethernet for enhanced connectivity between 16 government and community facilities, including eight recreation centers, to provide Wi-Fi for guests. The advanced voice, data and cloud services will also support safety and security upgrades for the town’s casinos.
The Town of Collierville is upgrading their network to fiber at the city’s Town Hall to improve operations and boost efficiency. They are also deploying Wi-Fi at city parks providing residents and guests with free access to the Internet. Comcast’s infrastructure investments will support future growth for additional government offices and area businesses.
The fiber-based network for both locations is scheduled for completion during the fourth quarter of 2017.
