Investment designed to deliver multi-gigabit speeds
Atlanta, Ga – June 5, 2018 – Comcast today announced it has completed a 12-mile fiber network designed to deliver gigabit speeds to residents and businesses in close proximity to the North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawsonville. The network will provide highly scalable and ultra-fast Internet connectivity and cloud-based voice solutions.
Comcast’s fiber network will provide 10-gigabit Internet service to the area’s businesses, as well as 1-gigabit speeds to single-family homes at Black Mill Preserve by D.R. Horton and the Crossings of Dawsonville apartments.
“These types of private sector partnerships are clearly the best way to expand and deploy high-speed broadband in our state,” said Georgia Rep. Kevin Tanner (R-Dawsonville). “I applaud Comcast’s success in bringing gigabit-powered technology to both densely populated and rural areas of Georgia, helping to bridge the digital divide. I look forward to working with Comcast and other companies to further expand their investment in House District 9.”
Comcast has invested about $2.1 billion in technology and infrastructure throughout Georgia over the past 7 years, and has built out nearly 8,000 miles of fiber network statewide. Comcast provides the fastest speeds to the most homes and businesses in Georgia, and continues to aggressively expand and enhance its fiber network.
“Bringing our 10-gigabit fiber network to Dawsonville supports the county’s focus on attracting new residents and businesses,” said Doug Guthrie, Regional Senior Vice President at Comcast. “We are pleased to make this important investment, and appreciate Dawson County’s partnership to make this possible.”
As the county seat of Dawson County, Dawsonville is located about 40 miles north of Atlanta and is nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains.
