Comcast said it now serves 1 million multi-family residents across 37 states a year after it launched Xfinity Communities, its service program tailored for apartment buildings, condos, healthcare facilities, and other multiple-dwelling units.
Comcast said the milestone comes amid a recent deal to support 25 properties from the Madison Apartment Group.
Under the program, Comcast sells, markets and maintains its “Advanced Communities Network” (via fiber-to-the-building and fiber-to-the-unit architectures) to deliver high-speed Internet service, its X1-powered video service, WiFi, and home security/automation offerings.
“The reality today is that residents take into consideration whether properties have access to the latest Internet, WiFi, TV, home automation and voice technologies when deciding where to live,” said Michael Slovin, VP, Xfinity Communities, in a statement. “As a result, many leading apartment owners and property managers have looked to us to provide the cutting-edge services they need to keep their residents happy and stay ahead of the competition.”
MSOs continue to apply more resources toward MDU-facing opportunities. Charter Communications, for example, just relaunched its effort under a new brand: “Spectrum Community Solutions” brand.
