Comcast to Open New 500-Seat Customer Call Center

December 14, 2007

Comcast (News - Alert) plans to build out a 92,000-square-foot, 500-seat regional call center in Largo, Maryland. It expects to have its first employees situated in the facility by the first quarter of 2008.
 
The new call center will feature state-of-the-art technology and a host of employee- oriented amenities, including an exercise center, auditorium, break rooms, training/meeting facilities, and on-site parking.
 
Primarily housing customer service agents the call center will provide technical support for Comcast High-Speed Internet (CHSI), Comcast Digital Voice (CDV), and various advanced video products.
 
“Comcast’s expansion will have a significant impact on Maryland’s economy,” Governor Martin O’Malley said in a press release. “But more than that, Comcast and its more than 4,200 Maryland employees are actively engaged in our communities through local grants, sponsorships, scholarships and volunteerism. We look forward to Comcast’s continued growth and success in Maryland.”
 
A loan of $ 500,000 from the state through the Maryland Economic Development Assistance Fund (MEDAF), and $50,000 pledge from the county will assist Comcast with tenant improvements, fixtures, and equipment in the new location.
 
“2007 was a milestone year for Comcast, and we are already gearing up for growth in 2008 across every product and service we offer,” said Curt Pendleton, regional senior vice president for Comcast’s Potomac Region. “Our new Largo call center will help us deliver an improved customer experience and we will be recruiting across the region to expand our team with employees who share a passion for delivering great customer service.”
 
The Largo call center joins Comcast’s other Regional facilities, including call centers in Rockville, Maryland; Silver Spring, Maryland; Washington, D.C.; and Manassas, Virginia.
 
Locally, Comcast delivers video, high speed internet, and residential phone services over its advanced fiber optic network, which is capable of continuing to deliver increased speeds, more programming and high definition (HDTV) choices, and advanced services like caller ID to the TV.
 
With 24.2 million cable customers, 12.9 million high-speed Internet customers, and 4.1 million voice customers, Comcast is principally involved in the development, management and operation of broadband cable systems and in the delivery of programming content.
