PRESTON COUNTY, W.Va. (WDTV) -- Comcast says it is "upgrading and expanding" its service in Preston County.

Officials say most residents in the county will soon have access to all Xfinity services, including Xfinity Internet, Xfinity Mobile, the Xfinity X1 video platform, Xfinity Voice and Xfinity Home.

Businesses in the county will also be able to get the full suite of Comcast Business products and services, which include Ethernet network speeds of up to 100 Gigabits-per-second.

“We applaud Comcast’s investment in infrastructure to upgrade and expand gigabit service to Preston County residents and businesses,” said Robert Hinton, Chairman of the West Virginia Broadband Enhancement Council. “West Virginia embraces private partners like Comcast who strive to significantly exceed minimum service standards and provide state-of-the-art, scalable technology within the mountain state.”

Existing Comcast customers will need to exchange their current equipment for new, digital devices to continue receiving Xfinity video services or to begin receiving Xfinity Internet, Xfinity Voice, and Xfinity Home. The equipment can be shipped for free by calling 1-800-XFINITY or visiting www.xfinity.com or the store on Venture Drive in Morgantown.
