Surpassing two million Comcast Digital Voice customers underscores the
record growth Comcast continues to experience as it aggressively rolls out its
Triple Play package of services. Triple Play, which bundles phone, high-speed
Internet and video services into a value-added package, gives customers the
convenience of using one company and receiving one monthly billing statement
for all three services.
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 integration of video, Internet and telephony.
