Comcast Cablevision of Maryland LP is expected to announce today the creation of 80 jobs at its national call center in White Marsh. The jobs would support customer assistance for the cable television company's Comcastome Internet access service.

Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and Baltimore County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger are to attend a ribbon-cutting at the call center this morning.

Comcast, which sells cable service to more than 300,000 customers in Howard, Harford and Baltimore counties, opened the call center Jan. 23. The unit initially employed 40 people.

Comcastome offers Internet access over Comcast's cable lines, which can carry World Wide Web traffic faster than normal telephone connections. Comcast sells theome service to its customers in parts of Howard and Baltimore counties, and plans to introduce service in Harford County before year's end.

"We continue to experience ample and pent-up demand for our high-speed Internet service," said Jaye Gamble, area vice president for Comcast. "Our 80 positions will allow us to keep up with robust growth."
