Comcast Expands Service to Palo Alto, Port Carbon, Saint Clair and More

The option will likely be a welcome addition to these municipalities.

Comcast has completed a major network expansion in Schuylkill County.

The company’s high-speed internet and cable TV service is now available in Palo Alto, Port Carbon, St. Clair, and East Norwegian and New Castle townships.

Comcast says its expansion brings the service to about 3,500 more homes and businesses in Schuylkill County.

Port Carbon Borough Council President Scott Krater says in a Comcast release, “With Xfinity and Comcast Business Internet, TV, and mobile services, our local communities have access to essential products and tools. Comcast’s commitment to local growth and community investment is significant for Port Carbon and the neighboring areas.”

    Might be great for businesses. Personally, no one can afford it any longer. Just had another 20.00 per month rate hike. Its out of control now! The store in south Lebanon Co has people coming in every day of the week, to cut back on service or drop it completely and turn equiptment in. We just cut back and may cut back further. Taking baby steps towards what needs to be done.

      It took me 2 years to drop them and I’m still not “up” on streaming channels. It’s confusing. I would love to know how to delete channels I don’t watch and use the “My Stuff” or “Favorites” to save channels.

    Comcast is the worst ripoff ever. Don’t change whatever you have keep it. It’s all about their bottom line. I pay a ton of money to them and only watch 30 channels. They offer packages from time to time to new customers only but never take care of the business they have. No to Comcast.

    Hope they expand their tech support. It was horrendous. I left 2 years ago when it cost me $214 a month for triple play. I miss it. I don’t care for streaming. Husband won’t even try to change channels or search. So I’m running back and forth from one room to the other. Also, there are too many picks. I loved ER so choose that to watch, 3 different “blocks.” Picked one and it was Season 1. Next day, picked one and it was Season 7. Also, Blue Bloods…never got to see Season 11 or 12. It jumped from Season 10 to 13.Half the time I can’t find a program I watched the day before. Can’t delete some things and won’t add some things. The only good thing is the cost is a lot lower. I still need Comcast for WiFi but cost is more than half of what I was paying.

      Seasons 11 and 12 of Blue Bloods are pretty good stuff. It’s streaming on several different services.
