Georgia's Cobb County Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department has selected Comcast's Business Ethernet services to connect 34 community facilities via fiber and coax networks. This is expected to improve online access for residents to information about facilities and programs, ease registrations and other transactions, and provide staff with better access to various business applications. Cobb County will also be able to offer WiFi at its facilities. Cobb County, GA, is home to 700,000 residents, many of whom register for the various sports leagues, summer camps, art class, tennis lessons, etc., and will benefit from the network, Comcast says. In the past, Cobb County staff experienced slow network performance during interactions with residents and the internal time management software and registration system did not function adequately. To address these issues, Cobb County has upgraded each of its 34 locations to 8-Mbps Ethernet Virtual Private Lines over HFC from Comcast and has selected a fiber-based 100 Mbps Ethernet dedicated Internet service to its data center.
