Comcast Government Arm Wins $76M Contract for DOD Region 6 Ethernet Services

A Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) business unit has won a potential $75.8 million Commercial Ethernet Gateway Region 6 contract to help Department of Defense mission partners connect to DOD’s global military information network.

Comcast’s government services group will replace legacy multiplexing-based circuits with new ethernet connections in the region, the Pentagon said Wednesday.

The Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization received three proposals for the single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract via a competitive solicitation on

DOD will fund the award’s $500 minimum guarantee using its fiscal 2021 operation and maintenance budget.

The award has a base performance period of six years and a pair of two-year options that would extend work through July 11, 2031.

Comcast will perform similar tasks for Region 5 of the Commercial Ethernet Gateway initiative under a separate $71.6 million contract awarded in late June.
