Comcast brings Xfinity 10G network to Arcadia, FL and greater DeSoto County

May 30, 2023
Arcadia is the latest community in Florida to roll out the operator's Xfinity 10G network enhancements.

Comcast on May 25 announced that it is accelerating deployments to expand its Xfinity 10G Network to Arcadia, Florida and surrounding areas in the state's DeSoto County to reach more than 10,000 homes and businesses.

The multi-gigabit broadband expansion, billed by the operator as the nation’s largest and fastest, will bring high-speed Internet services to some areas for the first time, and will do so on the broadband network that is being built to power the rapid rise in internet consumption today and in the future. Arcadia is the latest community in Florida to roll out the operator's Xfinity 10G Network enhancements, setting the stage for the introduction of new symmetrical multi-gigabit internet options that can be delivered across Comcast’s existing networks with less cost.

Comcast expects to complete the new network expansion by the end of the summer, making services available in the City of Arcadia, and parts of other areas in DeSoto County, including Nocatee and Lake Suzy. Residents can visit and enter their addresses to get additional details on services and when they will be available at their homes.

“Having access to high-speed Internet services will have a major positive impact on our residents and businesses in DeSoto County,” said Sondra Guffey, Economic Development Director for the DeSoto County Board of County Commissioners. “It will immediately connect our community to the vast resources that are available online and support our future economic growth and development.”

“As a part of longstanding Comcast’s commitment to bridging the digital divide, we are always working to bring internet connectivity to new and underserved areas like Arcadia and DeSoto County,” added Javier Garcia, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Comcast’s Florida Region. “Internet access is a necessity in today’s increasingly digital world. You need to get online to search for employment and apply for jobs, to read critical news and information or even access telehealth applications. Comcast is proud to be making this investment in Arcadia and DeSoto County to support the community and local businesses now and into the future.”
