RCN will be bringing its triple-play slate of services to more communities in the Boston area, as well as cities and towns in Pennsylvania.

In Boston, RCN’s services are now available in the Dorchester, Mattapan and Roslindale sections.

"We've completed construction that enables us to reach more customers in the Roslindale area, and ongoing construction will soon make RCN services available to more homes in Dorchester," said Richard Wadman, SVP and general manager of RCN Boston.

Wadman also said that Milton Board of Selectmen had agreed to an extension of RCN’s existing cable franchise last week, and that construction is underway.

RCN is expanding its coverage area in Pennsylvania to include Alburtis, Coopersburg, Reigelsville and Walnutport, by connecting the cities to its digital network.

In addition to Boston and Pennsylvania, RCN provides services in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

Like other cable operators, RCN is focusing more on commercial services with its RCN Business Solutions unit.

RCN bought fiber-optic backbone service provider Neon Communications last month in a cash deal worth about $260 million.
