Comcast is Coming to Edison, NJ

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has approved Comcast’s application for a system-wide franchise to operate in Edison Township, NJ. As a result, Comcast will expand its smart, fast, reliable, fiber-rich network to Edison and deliver its full suite of Xfinity and Comcast Business services to more than 40,000 residents and businesses in the township.

“Since day one, broadband competition has been a focus of my administration and I’m proud and excited that Comcast will begin building out to offer service to our residents,” said Edison Mayor Sam Joshi. “This is a huge win for us all, allowing for better service in our schools, workplaces, and homes, especially for residents who work remotely. I am thrilled to see our community grow, and this partnership is a great example of how we move forward together.”

Construction on the multi-year project will get underway immediately. Residents and businesses can visit Xfinity.com/MyTown/ and sign up to receive future updates on construction timing and service availability. They can also stop by our local Xfinity Store at 899 Saint George Avenue, Woodbridge, NJ to check availability. Experts at the Xfinity Store can also help with product demonstrations, answer any questions consumers may have and help local businesses schedule an informational meeting with the Comcast Business sales team.

“Comcast is excited to bring our advanced products and services to tens of thousands of residents and businesses in Edison,” said Dan Bonelli, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Freedom Region, which serves New Jersey. “We are thrilled to continue our investments in the state, offering more choice to residents with fast, secure and reliable Internet services that are built to meet the community’s needs today and into the future.”

Residents will have access to Xfinity’s full suite of Internet products, including the company’s Internet Essentials program that provides low-cost, high-speed broadband for income constrained households.

This expansion is part of Comcast’s latest investments in New Jersey. Over the last several years, Comcast has expanded to more than 130,000 additional homes and businesses across the state. Comcast is also partnering with leaders in Hopewell and Maurice River townships in Cumberland County to extend the network into their unserved areas.

Comcast’s network and Internet experience are powering homes today and into the future.

  • Ultimate Capacity: Xfinity customers connect more than 1 billion devices across the company’s network annually. With the next-generation Xfinity gateways we deliver the most advanced WiFi technology carrying three times more bandwidth to power streaming, gaming, videoconferencing, and more, simultaneously. 
  • Fastest Internet: More than a third of Xfinity Internet customers subscribe to gigabit speed products. Recently Comcast connected the first customers in the world to a DOCSIS 4.0 connection, delivering symmetrical gig speeds over existing connections in customers’ homes with plans to continue to rollout these speeds across the country over the coming years.
  • Unprecedented Coverage: The latest Xfinity Gateway provides a more reliable connection throughout the home. Customers can get wall-to-wall WiFi coverage with a powerful WiFi Boost Pod that extends coverage to hard-to-reach areas of the home. 
  • Most Reliable Connection: Comcast is scaling the nation’s largest and most reliable network that passes 62 million homes and businesses and counting. The company launched Storm-Ready WiFi, a new device that comes powered with cellular and battery backup to help keep customers connected even when the power goes out. 
  • Ultra-Low Latency: The Xfinity network and the latest Xfinity Gateway are a powerful combination that deliver ultra-low latency for those moments when response times matter most like video games, a fast-growing category with Xfinity households averaging more than one gaming console per home.
