Comcast to meet with Caroline residents

Comcast to meet with Caroline residents

Comcast, one of the largest Internet service providers in the county, will meet with the public to answer questions about their expanding service in Caroline County next week.

The scope and extent of Comcast’s service plans have been unclear since the company first announced in March its intention to bring high speed internet and other services to Caroline’s western residential communities.  Caroline County officials invited Comcast to meet with the public to answer questions that Caroline residents might have on Wednesday, June 1 at the County Visitor Center from 5 to 7 p.m.

Comcast has expressed at various times that it may offer a variety of services to Caroline residents.  County officials are providing a venue for Comcast to be able to begin to further define what those services and their cost might be to residents.

All persons with an interest in the new internet services, however, are being urged by county staff to attend in person to have their questions fully answered by the utility provider.

The Comcast meeting is a result of past county and citizen work to jointly appeal to the internet provider to service Caroline County.  Since the announcement of the intention to serve Caroline, one Comcast official has said that the company has received numerous calls for information—perhaps more than from any other community where service has been announced, according to Economic Director Gary Wilson.

The Caroline County Visitor Center is located less than a mile from the Interstate 95, 104 Interchange on Rt. 207, east toward Bowling Green.
