Expanding Connectivity Across Minnesota
Comcast’s expansion efforts will benefit several communities across Minnesota, including Corcoran, Cologne, Nowthen, and parts of Grant, Hugo, Rogers, and Stillwater Township. These expansions are set to provide 5x-10x faster upload speeds and smoother connections through the Xfinity Network. This initiative aligns with Comcast’s nationwide rollout of multi-gig Internet speeds and represents a substantial investment of $473 million in Minnesota over the last three years.
Highlighting the significance of these expansions, Corcoran Mayor Tom McKee emphasized the transformative impact of reliable broadband access on economic growth and community development. Through partnerships with local authorities and funding support from the State of Minnesota’s Border-to-Border Broadband program, Comcast aims to bridge the digital divide and serve thousands of additional homes with high-speed internet.
