Comcast is deeply committed to California, where our nearly 5,000 employees serve more than 3 million customers throughout the state.
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 and Amazon integration — is changing the way our customers experience TV. Xfinity Mobile uses America’s largest 4G LTE network combined with the most WiFi hotspots nationwide to give customers a better wireless experience. Xfinity Internet gives customers unprecedented access and control over one of the most important technologies in their lives. We are delivering gigabit speeds, have built the largest network of WiFi hotspots in the U.S. and crated a new, fully personalized home WiFi experience.
For business customers, Comcast Business offers Ethernet, Internet, WiFi, Voice, TV and Managed Solutions to help businesses transform with technology. Comcast built the nation’s largest Gig-speed network, and now we’re enabling businesses to go “Beyond Fast.” There’s a choice for every business, including WiFi that thinks about what your customers want. And complete 4G-LTE backup for reliability so business goes on, even if the power goes out. Since 2011, Comcast has invested $8 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 200,000 households, or nearly 800,000 Californians, have signed up for Internet Essentials as of late 2018.
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. Since 2011, we have invested more than $381 million in cash and in-kind contributions to local organizations that share our commitment to improving communities.
Comcast and NBCUniversal have long recognized that members of the military bring exceptional strengths to the workplace and we actively recruit veterans. Comcast has a commitment to hire 11,000 reservists, veterans and their spouses or domestic partners, bringing our total to 21,000 military hires by the end of 2021.
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, LGBTQ, African American and Asian Pacific Islanders. These ERGs offer mentoring programs and networking opportunities to help employees grow professionally and personally.
