California opens bidding process to Comcast Business

Comcast Business is one of the providers awarded a contract by the state of California´s Department of Technology (CDT) through its CALNET Telecommunications Program to begin contracting with public agencies to support their business requirements, the company said.

As a result of becoming an authorized CALNET provider, Comcast Business is now able to offer Category 3 Ethernet Services and Category 5 Internet Services to more than 2,000 state and non-state agencies.

The CDT is focused on providing services that meet the State´s complex and critical telecommunications and network business needs. The CALNET Telecommunications Program accomplishes this through oversight, statewide policy, and a suite of statewide, competitively bid telecommunications contracts used by both state and local public agencies.

The purpose of CALNET is to make it easier for municipalities to work with service providers like Comcast Business that have multi-service offerings.

With agencies able to contract with Comcast Business and other service providers, there are more services from which higher education institutions, K-12 schools, state agencies, and cities and counties across California can benefit.

Comcast Business offers Ethernet, Internet, Wi-Fi, Voice, TV and Managed Enterprise Solutions to help organizations of all sizes transform their business.

Comcast Cable is one of the nation´s largest video, high-speed Internet and phone providers to residential customers under the XFINITY brand and also provides these services to businesses.
