Comcast plans state-of-the-art Fort Collins call center

The new facility will bring 600 jobs to Northern Colorado

Comcast has announced plans to open a major, new customer support center in Fort Collins. 

Comcast will hire 600 new employees who will provide technical product and service support to Comcast residential customers.  In addition, there will be a number of leadership and support positions hired to run the day-to-day operations of the new call center.

The state-of-the-art, 80,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open within a year after significant upgrades to a large facility on the Hewlett Packard campus on East Harmony Road.

With the addition of the customer support center, Comcast will have more than 8,000 employees across the state, including more than 700 in Northern Colorado.

The announcement underscores Comcast’s continuing investment in Colorado. Since 1996, Comcast has invested more than $7 billion in its technology infrastructure in Colorado, including more than $300 million in network investments in just the last five years. Comcast provides 100,000 lower-income Coloradans, including nearly 14,000 individuals in Northern Colorado, with low-cost Internet service through the Internet Essentials program. Last year, it also contributed more than $17 million in cash and in-kind donations to Colorado nonprofits.

Nationwide, Comcast will hire a total of more than 5,500 customer service employees in the next few years, including the new Fort Collins employees. New customer support centers are now open and operational in Albuquerque, NM, Spokane, WA and Tucson, AZ.

Comcast plans to begin advertising and posting new positions later this year.
