Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA) has expanded its DOCSIS 3.1-based Internet service to business customers in the western United States, including California, Colorado, Houston, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

Comcast's Business Internet 1 Gig and Business Internet 500 speed tiers are now available to business services customers in the company's West, Central, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast service areas using the company's existing HFC network.

"With more companies adopting cloud-based services, leveraging SD-WAN to connect branch locations, and using high-performance Internet as a competitive differentiator and growth tool, it's more important than ever that organizations manage their current bandwidth needs while also planning for the future requirements and the dynamics of the digital transformation of businesses," said Peter Neill, vice president of Comcast Business for Comcast's West Division. "Our gig-speed network allows businesses to quickly and easily scale network capacity at their locations and leverage innovative technology services to keep customers happy and increase the bottom line."

DOCSIS 3.1-based Internet service is now generally available across Comcast's national footprint. The service tiers complement existing gigabit and multi-gigabit options already available to Comcast Business customers, including Comcast Business Ethernet over fiber.

Pricing for the services varies based on business location and number of locations to be served as well as the services to which the business currently subscribes.
