County contracts Comcast to provide broadband northeast of Battle Ground Lake


Clark County Council recently approved a contract with Comcast to install broadband fiber in an area northeast of Battle Ground Lake. The project will add approximately 31 miles of broadband service to the area, a news release by the county stated.

Comcast will begin construction this summer, and some homes and businesses will gain access to services starting in winter 2024-25. Construction is anticipated to continue through summer of 2025.

The new service area will extend from the Northeast corner of Battle Ground Lake east to approximately Northeast 220th Avenue, the news release stated.

The $5.21 million high-speed internet expansion project is being funded as a public-private partnership between Comcast and Clark County, with the county contributing $3.65 million of federal funding allocated through the American Rescue Plan Act.

“This public-private partnership is years in the works, and I am gratified to finally see it move forward,” Clark County Council Chair Gary Medvigy said in the release. “This project will add more than 500 high-speed connections into an area underserved in our rural unincorporated area. It is just the beginning as the process for much larger grants are in progress to address other underserved areas.”
