Comcast is deeply committed to California, where our nearly 5,000 employees serve 3.4 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 bilingual voice remote and Peacock, Netflix, Amazon and Disney+ 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 Mobile’s new 5G unlimited data options provide customers with even more flexibility to customize the way they pay for cellular data, to help save money.
Xfinity Internet gives customers unprecedented access and control over one of the most important technologies in their lives. Our customers can take advantage of advanced WiFi technology that is capable of delivering speeds faster than one Gigabit per second (Gbps) to support the ever-increasing number of connected devices in today’s homes.
For business customers, Comcast Business offers Ethernet, Internet, WiFi, Voice, TV and Managed Solutions to help businesses transform with technology. 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 2017 alone, Comcast has devoted more than $15 billion to strengthening and expanding its network – including building more than 33,000 new route miles of fiber. Every 2.5 years the company adds as much capacity to the network as it added in all the previous years combined. As a result, we continuously increase the speed, 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 continues to lead the nation with more than 1.4 million individuals participating in our Internet Essentials program since its inception. Comcast also recently announced a multiyear program to launch more than 1,000 WiFi-connected “Lift Zones” in community centers nationwide. Lift Zones complement Comcast’s Internet Essentials program, which, since 2011, has helped connect more than 8 million low-income people to the Internet at home.
In 2020, Comcast announced a multiyear $100 million plan to advance social justice and equality – a pledge that marks another significant moment in the annual investments we have long made to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) and uplifting local communities. We continue to be deeply committed to doing real work that will produce lasting change. In addition to Lift Zones, programs like RISE, a multi-year, multi-faceted initiative designed to help strengthen Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)-owned, small businesses are specific, tangible examples of how we are putting our commitments into action.
