Comcast Brings Speed and Reliability to Washington County

Comcast is bringing its fiber-rich network to more than 1,000 homes and businesses in Washington County, specifically to the cities of Grant, Hugo, and Stillwater Township. This network expansion project was possible through partnerships with the Minnesota Office of Broadband and their Minnesota Border-to-Border Broadband grant program, Washington County, City of Grant and Stillwater Township.

Comcast celebrated the expansion with a groundbreaking event with Stillwater Township at the historic Township Hall with city officials, elected officials, and the Minnesota Office of Broadband.

Members from Stillwater Township, Washington County, MInnesota Office of Broadband, and Comcast gathered in front of a pile of dirt with shovels to celebrate a groundbreaking ceremony. Every participant is holding a shovel and gently throwing dirt .

Afterwards, guests were invited to enjoy a sweet treat from Stillwater’s very own Roxy’s Waffles which is owned by two teen sisters who turned a camper into a successful business. The cozy atmosphere of Roxy’s Waffles added an extra layer of charm to the experience, making it a memorable highlight of the evening.

Building out these areas of Washington County is just the latest step in Comcast’s Midwest Region’s expansion, which has brought a wide range of possibilities to not only this area, but communities in both Hennepin and Anoka County, thanks to the funding support from the State of Minnesota’s Border to Border Broadband program.

“Ensuring residents and businesses in Washington County have access to reliable, high-speed Internet is a top priority for Comcast. As the world we live in becomes increasingly digital, we remain focused on not only bringing our broadband network to these homes and businesses, but also on future-proofing our network to meet the ever-increasing appetite for education, business and entertainment.

– Kalyn Hove, Regional Senior Vice President for Comcast Midwest Region
