NJBPU Approves Comcast’s Expansion into Edison

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has approved Comcast’s application for a system-wide franchise to operate in Edison Township. As a result, Comcast will expand its 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 and sign up to receive future updates on construction timing and service availability. They can also stop by the local Xfinity Store at 899 Saint George Avenue, Woodbridge 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.”

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.

For local businesses, Comcast Business offers a suite of connectivity, communications, networking, cybersecurity, wireless and managed solutions to help organizations of different sizes. Powered by the nation’s largest Gig-speed broadband network, and backed by 24/7 customer support, Comcast Business is the nation’s largest cable provider to small and mid-size businesses and one of the leading service providers to the Enterprise market.
