Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA; CMCSK), the nation's leading provider of cable, entertainment and communications products and services, today announced it has surpassed the two million customer milestone for Comcast Digital Voice®, the company's innovative home phone service. Comcast Digital Voice is a fully featured, reliable and less expensive alternative for traditional telephone service. The company celebrated by awarding a customer in southeast Michigan with a digital home makeover to take advantage of the new integrated features that are available through its Triple Play package of phone, high-speed Internet and video services.
Surpassing two million Comcast Digital Voice customers underscores the record growth Comcast continues to experience across all cable products as it aggressively rolls out its Triple Play package of services.
"The momentum our voice product has experienced since it was launched is simply staggering," said Cathy Avgiris, senior vice president and general manager of Voice Services for Comcast. "We anticipate continued growth for the Digital Voice product and look forward to unveiling additional innovative features and services to our customers."
In addition to the cost savings and convenience of using one company for all services, the bundle provides further value and simplicity because customers benefit from the value-added features and integration of the products and services.
