Washington Municipality Transitions to Remote-Work Environment

Comcast Business has announced a partnership with the City of Sumner, Washington, to provide increased bandwidth and high-performance connectivity to support the municipality´s ongoing remote-work plan, the company said.

Following a swift transition to a remote workforce as the COVID-19 outbreak worsened, the City of Sumner soon realized its data connection — which had been suitable for day-to-day, in-office purposes — did not have the capacity to support voice calls and upload speed requirements with the majority of employees now on VPN connections from home.

The city of approximately 10,000 residents, and longtime Comcast Business customer, urgently needed to increase capacity to keep its distributed workforce productive and serving the public. Within a few days of Sumner´s service request, Comcast Business upgraded the data connection, giving Sumner the bandwidth it needed to meet its employees´ remote connectivity needs.

Comcast Business offers Ethernet, Internet, Wi-Fi, Voice, TV and Managed Enterprise Solutions to help organizations of all sizes transform their business. For more information, visit http://business.comcast.com/social.
