We’re thrilled to announce that Comcast has reached a landmark agreement to extend multi-gig-speed internet services to rural Clark County. We are particularly proud of this partnership, which will see Comcast constructing the necessary infrastructure to deliver a robust, fiber-rich network and a full suite of services to over 500 homes and businesses.

Residents in our expanded service footprint in Clark County will soon benefit from multi-gig broadband speeds, while business customers can expect speeds of up to 100 Gbps. Our network expansion is part of Clark County’s broader effort to enhance broadband infrastructure in underserved areas of the county. By partnering with Comcast, the county aims to improve the quality of life for residents and boost economic opportunities for local businesses.

“This public – private partnership is years in the works, and I am gratified to finally see it move forward,” said Clark County Council Chair Gary Medvigy. “The county council initiated this project on our own in advance of other state and federal initiatives. This project will add more than 500 high speed connections into an area underserved in our rural unincorporated area. It is just the beginning as the process for much larger grants are in progress to address other underserved areas.” 

Today’s announcement about expansion of high-speed internet services in Clark County is an extension of our commitment to investing in and expanding our network. Over the last three years, we have invested more than $1.6 billion in technology and infrastructure that includes upgrades to our network in Oregon and Washington.

We are dedicated to ensuring that more residents and businesses across the Pacific Northwest have the important broadband connections they need for their educational, professional, and personal lives. We are proud to connect these communities with fast, secure, and reliable internet service that is built to meet their needs today and into the future.

“As Clark County continues to grow into what have been the rural areas of our county, having a solid broadband infrastructure will be imperative for the businesses that will be following the growth,” said Greater Vancouver Chamber President and CEO John P McDonagh. “We are excited for the agreement Comcast has reached with the county and look forward to how this will improve the accessibility to broadband for both the residents and business present and future.”

We plan to begin constructing the infrastructure this Summer, with some homes and businesses expected to gain access to Comcast services starting this winter. The construction is anticipated to continue through the summer of 2025, ultimately providing more than 500 homes and businesses with a next-generation network that supports new multi-gigabit internet options.

“Access to high-quality broadband internet is an imperative for small business owners and entrepreneurs,” said Columbia River Economic Development Council President, Jennifer Baker. “From facilitating reliable point of sale transactions to building an environment where more people can participate in the creative economy and deliver professional services, broadband is a cornerstone.”

Once permits are obtained and construction begins in public rights of way, we will provide an online resource for residents seeking information about the network build in their neighborhood. This resource will include answers to frequently asked questions, as well as product and service details.
