The operator will leverage the multi-million dollar upgrade to offer a variety of business offerings, including internet, voice, TV, and cloud-based computing services.

"In today's increasingly digital world, internet access and speed are critical to operations for businesses of all sizes and across all industries," said Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. "The expansion of Comcast's high-speed network will serve as a strong contributor to the continued business and job growth we are seeing in our city, and overall the development of Tallahassee's new economy."

Comcast's positions the fiber-optic network as a source of high-bandwidth connectivity as well as useful to businesses looking for a redundant or second network for business continuity and to provide file access, backup, and recovery in the event of a disaster.

Service on offer include:

  • Ethernet Private Line: point-to-point connectivity between two customer sites for bandwidth-intensive applications
  • Ethernet Virtual Private Line: point-to-multipoint connections
  • Ethernet Network Service: multipoint-to-multipoint connectivity
  • Ethernet Dedicated Internet: continuous, high-bandwidth connectivity between customers' LANs and the public internet.
