Comcast Expanding Fiber Optic Network, Bringing Faster Internet Speeds to Chattahoochee Hills

The City of Chattahoochee Hills is a small, rural community. But their residents increasingly need higher bandwidth and faster internet speeds in an era where connecting to the world wide web is critical to the conduct of business.

At the 3 March 2015 Chattahoochee Hills City Council meeting, IT Director Harlan Hamlin announced the municipality's bandwidth would be increasing to over fifty times the current rate.

Comcast, according to Hamlin, is expanding its fiber optic network to the City of Chattahoochee Hills.

Currently, Chattahoochee Hills has a maximum bandwidth of 1 mbps. Once Comcast completes its network upgrades, Chattahoochee Hills will have a maximum bandwidth 50 mbps.

The fiber optic network expansion by Comcast is expected to be completed within the next sixty to ninety days.
