Comcast Business has been named the exclusive Gigabit network services provider for Bethesda Green in a move that will raise their market profile in a big way.
Bethesda Green is a rapidly-growing incubator for environmentally sustainable businesses in Montgomery County, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C. The agreement provides a 1 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) Ethernet Dedicated Internet line that outfits the office with fast and reliable Internet access capable of scaling up to 10 Gbps of capacity as business demands evolve.
A statement from the company said Bethesda Green is a non-profit entity whose mission is to accelerate the local sustainable economy with a focus on innovation, impact and community. Veronique Marier, the executive director of Bethesda Green welcomed the new development saying it will lay good foundation for success to their member organizations.
“Our member organizations share similar values and look at their triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. Having access to colleagues, relevant connections in the community, cloud-based software and other resources located offsite via the Internet is not only essential to their success but also allows companies to create smart solutions for sustainability.”
The organization houses a fast-growing business incubator that offers numerous networking events, education programs and a co-working facility on site. These amenities attract green technology firms, water and energy innovators, healthy consumer products entrepreneurs, green service providers and nonprofits from around the region.
“Comcast Business gives us reliable network services that can quickly scale up whenever we need it, which has already helped us attract new members who are looking for the most cutting-edge technologies to help them make their mark on the world.” Byron Cantrall, the regional vice president for Comcast Business said; “Giving the startups at Bethesda Green the technology services they need helps them turn their innovative ideas into a reality and grow their business.”
