Comcast is deeply committed to California, where our 5,000 employees serve more than 2 million customers throughout our footprint.
Comcast is California’s leading provider of XFINITY® video, high-speed Internet, “smart home” and phone services. Our X1 entertainment platform — with its innovative voice remote and Netflix integration — is changing the way our customers experience TV.
Our Comcast Business team offers Ethernet, Internet, WiFi, Voice, TV and Managed Solutions to help businesses transform with technology.
In the past 10 years, Comcast has invested $11 billion in California to build, enhance and maintain our systems, networks and infrastructure. As a result, we have been able to continuously increase the features, capacity, reliability and performance we offer our customers.
We are also committed to making the Internet accessible to as many families in California as possible. In fact, California is the #1 state in the nation to help close the digital divide with Comcast’s Internet Essentials program. Nearly 115,000 families, or nearly 460,000 Californians, have signed up for Internet Essentials as of late 2016.
We leverage our media and technology assets across Comcast NBCUniversal to benefit the communities where our employees, customers and partners live, work, play and serve. In 2016, we provided more than $54 million in cash and in-kind contributions to local organizations that share our commitment to improving communities. At a Corporate level, Comcast NBCUniversal contributed about half a billion in 2016 alone.
Comcast and NBCUniversal have long recognized that veteran hires bring exceptional strengths to the business and actively recruit prospective employees with military backgrounds. Our company has a commitment to hire 10,000 reservists, veterans and their spouses or domestic partners by 2018.
Former members of the military are just one of the diverse talent pools we draw from and we have employee resource groups (ERGs) dedicated to Veterans as well as Women, Hispanics and Asian Pacific Islanders. These ERGs offer mentoring programs and networking opportunities to help employees grow professionally and personally.
