With this expansion, more than 250 companies in the communications, transportation and technology industries in the business park now have access to Comcast Business’s comprehensive portfolio of advanced communications services.

“Having a robust network is essential to recruiting and retaining high-technology companies in the North Creek Business Park,” said Peter Troedsson, assistant city manager of Bothell. “We’re happy that Comcast chose the city of Bothell and that they’re expanding this essential network.”
