Today, the City of Duvall announced Comcast will expand the availability of the Xfinity 10G Network multi-gigabit internet service in Duvall. Over the next two years, Comcast will construct the infrastructure to deliver its fast, reliable, fiber-rich network and full suite of services to more than 3,000 Duvall homes and businesses, including multi-gig broadband speeds for residential customers and speeds up to 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) for business customers.
The city of Duvall is noted as one of the fastest growing communities in the state of Washington. To accommodate its growing population, the city is expanding broadband infrastructure to improve the quality of life of residents, and to enhance economic opportunities for local businesses. As our community grows, we are continually looking at ways to provide the high-quality services our citizens deserve, said Amy Ockerlander, Mayor City of Duvall. Now we are pleased to include Comcast high-speed internet to our budding infrastructure. This is a big step forward to ensure that even more residents and businesses have the important broadband connections they need.
We are excited to have finalized an agreement with the city to expand availability of broadband internet services in Duvall, said Terry Davis, Sr. Director of External Affairs, Comcast Pacific Northwest Region. Todays announcement is an extension of our commitment to investing in and expanding our network to ensure that more residents and businesses across Washington have the important broadband connections they need for their educational, professional and personal lives.
The planned network expansion is the latest example of the companys investment this year in the Pacific Northwest. Comcast is investing $280 million in 2023 to offer multi-gigabit Internet speeds to more than four million locations, expand broadband and video services to more than 60,000 additional homes and businesses, and provide donations and in-kind services to communities throughout Oregon and Washington.
Once permits are obtained and construction has begun in the public rights of way, Comcast will create an online resource for Duvall residents seeking information about the network build in their neighborhood, including answers to frequently asked questions and product and service details.

A small, yet diverse city, rich in history and tradition, our residents represent many walks of life and represent an exciting cross section of occupations and cultures. Duvall is located on SR-203, approximately 25 miles northeast of Seattle, halfway between Monroe and Carnation, and is fast becoming a favorite residential community for both commuters and for those who choose to conduct business in a small-town setting.
