(ATLANTA) September 30, 2022 – Comcast announced today it has staged teams of employees and business partners focused on network engineering, technical operations, and construction, roughly 300 commercial generators, and one Xfinity WiFi van in Augusta in preparation for Hurricane Ian’s arrival to coastal South Carolina. The generators were sent by various Comcast locations from across the country.
The company has also sent four additional Wi-Fi vans to Comcast’s Smyrna, Georgia location, where they will soon be deployed to impacted communities in Florida.
“At difficult times like this, it’s critical that we are able to assist our customers and the community in any way possible,” said Jason Gumbs, Comcast Regional SVP.
The Wi-Fi van provides residents who are in range with free internet access. The service is available for anyone to use, including non-Xfinity customers. The vans’ Wi-Fi can accommodate up to 300 users at one time.
Comcast is committed to helping customers stay connected to what’s most important to them — this hurricane season, and all year round. For more information, customers can chat online with an agent, visit Xfinity.com/response or connect with Comcast on Twitter at @xfinitysupport.
