Comcast Sr. Manager of External Affairs Evangeline Parker-Guest addresses the crowd at a ribbon cutting ceremony held Wednesday in Cabot to celebrate Comcast’s expansion into Cabot.

Comcast is working to connect more than 2,500 homes and businesses in Cabot, Arkansas to broadband by the end of the year. The expansion, funded by Comcast, will give families access to the company’s full suite of Xfinity services, including Internet speeds faster than a gigabit. Businesses and local government buildings will also have access to Comcast Business’s full suite of services. Since 2022, Comcast has connected nearly 7,000 homes and businesses to high-speed broadband since its initial entry into the market.

“We know how critical it is to connect our communities in Lonoke County and across Arkansas with next-generation technology, and we believe today’s announcement is a true milestone,” said Mike McArdle, Comcast Regional Senior Vice President, Big South. “Comcast is thrilled to partner with the city to expand our service to more neighborhoods, and this project is part of our long-term investment in Cabot’s future.”

When the project is complete, Comcast will offer the following Xfinity services to residential customers in the expansion area:

  • Xfinity Internet – Connect to the Xfinity network and get speeds up to 2 gigabits per second (Gbps), advanced WiFi gateways, Storm-Ready WiFi, and powerful WiFi Boost Pods that extend coverage to every corner of your home.

Powered by the Xfinity Network

Comcast’s network and Internet experience are powering homes and businesses today and into the future:

  • Ultimate Capacity: Xfinity customers connect more than 1 billion devices across the company’s network annually. The Xfinity network with the next-generation Xfinity gateways delivers the most advanced WiFi technology carrying three times more bandwidth to power streaming, gaming, videoconferencing and more, simultaneously.
  • Fastest Internet: More than a third of Xfinity Internet customers subscribe to gigabit speed products. Recently, Comcast connected the first customers in the world to a DOCSIS 4.0 connection, delivering symmetrical gig speeds over existing connections in customers’ homes with plans to continue to rollout these speeds across the country over the coming years.
  • Unprecedented Coverage: The latest Xfinity Gateway provides a more reliable connection throughout the home. Customers can get WiFi coverage with a powerful Xfinity WiFi Boost Pod that extends coverage to hard-to-reach areas of the home.
  • Most Reliable Connection: Comcast is scaling the nation’s largest and most reliable network. The company recently launched Storm-Ready WiFi, a new device that comes equipped with LTE cellular and battery backup to help keep customers connected even when the power goes out.
  • Ultra-Low Latency: The Xfinity network and the latest Xfinity Gateway are a powerful combination that deliver ultra-low latency for those moments when response times matter most like video games, a fast-growing category with Xfinity households averaging more than one gaming console per home.

Over the last three years, Comcast has added and upgraded nearly 10,000 miles of its network to connect more than 300,000 new businesses and homes across the southeastern United States. Comcast plans to continue its expansion and bring its network to more under- and unserved communities through private funding and state and local partnerships.
