Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA) has signed an access agreement with iTel Networks, a Canadian network service provider, to deliver managed broadband services to U.S.-based enterprise customers with a presence in Canada. Comcast Business plans to leverage iTel's vendor relationships to expand Comcast Business' footprint and support its U.S.-based Enterprise Solutions customers' locations throughout Canada with its Managed Broadband offering.

"Our Enterprise Solutions team has uncovered a wealth of opportunities for Comcast Business to deliver services outside the U.S. Many of our existing enterprise customers and prospects have locations outside the United States, in particular, in Canada," said Glenn Katz, senior vice president and general manager, Comcast Business Enterprise Solutions. "We're excited to announce that we are leveraging this exciting new relationship with iTel Networks to serve our Managed Broadband enterprise customers' Canadian locations."

Comcast Business can provide custom network connectivity solutions with the ability to provision services now with U.S. and Canadian coverage, as well as options that provide physical diversity from traditional telecommunications providers. Comcast Business can offer a solution that leverages a mix of access technologies to help distributed enterprises simplify network management.

"As a converged network company, we harness the power of every Canadian carrier and every technology to create an affordable network solution in even the most remote locations across Canada and the U.S.," said Dan Rink, CEO at iTel Networks. "Our agreement with Comcast Business brings this power to bear for their U.S.-based enterprise customers looking to extend managed broadband support to their Canadian locations."
