To the Editor:
I’m writing to share some pertinent information about the Comcast network and our products and services on Martha’s Vineyard.
Martha’s Vineyard is connected to Comcast’s network via fiber optics – the same way that we serve every Comcast community in the country. Comcast has leased fiber from NSTAR via its undersea cable. The connection links to our on-Island hybrid-fiber coax infrastructure, which brings fiber to the streets and then to homes and businesses across the vast majority of the Island. This advanced fiber optic network enables Comcast to provide high-speed Internet, with speeds up to 50 Mbps and beyond, more than 3,000 HD choices each day, and voice services for consumers and businesses, along with other advanced services.
Our fiber-optic network is an important part of the Island’s digital economy, and we are continuing to invest in the innovations that will keep all of our Island customers on the cutting edge of technology.
As our negotiations continue on our cable license renewal, Comcast is committed to providing a superior customer experience, which will not be affected as a result of ongoing discussions. We look forward to reaching an agreement that works for local officials, for Comcast and, most importantly, for our customers.
Thank you for your interest in this topic and for this opportunity to respond.
