Comcast announced it will be extending its smart, fast and reliable fiber-rich network to make its full suite of services available to more than 2,300 homes and businesses in the City of Wayzata, including residential broadband speeds faster than 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) and business speeds up to 100 Gbps. The $2.5 million project is on track to start connecting homes and businesses to high-speed Internet by late 2022, with completion of the network throughout Wayzata expected in 2023.
The expansion of Comcast’s fiber-rich network to Wayzata, along with previously completed expansions in Rogers and Dayton, brings service to nearly 2,900 additional Twin Cities homes and businesses reached by Comcast since 2021. Over the past three years, Comcast has invested nearly $435 million in technology and infrastructure in Minnesota to enhance its network and product offerings to reach more residents and businesses in the surrounding area with gigabit-capable speeds. The Wayzata expansion brings the company’s statewide investment to more than $437 million. “Comcast’s expansion is welcome news for our residents and businesses in Wayzata,” said Johanna Mouton, Mayor of Wayzata. “As Mayor, I want to be able to offer more choices for our residents so that they can identify the services that work best for them and their needs. In addition, I know the services Comcast brings will be welcomed by our thriving service and retail business sectors.”
