BURLINGTON, Vt. -- Comcast, Vermont's leading provider of digital communications and entertainment products and services, today announced the beginning of a massive 300-mile extension of its fiber network in 2007, expanding access to Comcast's cable television, high-speed Internet and phone services in 58 Vermont communities.

Many residents of the communities benefiting from this network extension still depend on copper-wire phone service, dial-up Internet and satellite TV companies, which cannot match the clarity of Comcast's High-Definition picture or deliver ON DEMAND programming. With the company's innovative phone service -- Comcast Digital Voice -- scheduled to launch in Vermont later this year, the network extension will soon bring Vermonters from Westminster to Coventry the monthly savings and one-stop-shopping ease of Comcast's Triple Play bundle of Digital Cable with ON DEMAND, Comcast High-Speed Internet and Comcast Digital Voice services.

Because Comcast provides complimentary broadband services to schools, libraries and Boys & Girls Clubs in Vermont, its investments in education and youth development also will increase in Vermont with this significant network expansion.

"Comcast is delivering on our commitment to bring cutting-edge services to many parts of Vermont that have never before had broadband," said Dan Blakeman, Vice President of Comcast's Vermont system. "With the arrival of spring, we've deployed construction crews all over the state who are hard at work getting the job done."
