Stocks in this article: CMCSACMCSKVZ

Verizon Wireless and Comcast today announced they will sell each other’s services in Western Massachusetts and deliver a variety of offers and incentives for new and existing customers. Now, consumers in communities along the Interstate 91 corridor, from Springfield north to Bernardston, looking to stay connected to the people and things they love while on the go or at home have new options for outstanding video, phone, Internet and wireless services.

Qualified customers of both Comcast and Verizon Wireless could be eligible for a variety of offers and incentives, including Visa ® prepaid cards valued up to $300, a Comcast HD DVR at no additional cost for six months, and/or a complimentary 12-month upgrade to Blast!, the Xfinity Internet service that provides download speeds of up to 50 Mbps.

“Mobility is a top priority for today’s consumer,” commented Christine Berberich, New England President for Verizon Wireless. “With Comcast, we’ve wrapped leading wireless, entertainment and communications services into one offering. At home and on the go, customers can expect a great experience when Comcast’s product suite is combined with the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.”

“Together with Verizon Wireless, we’re delivering more value for more consumers by providing an entertainment and communications solution that aligns with their increasingly mobile lifestyles,” said Mary McLaughlin, Senior Vice President for Comcast’s Western New England Region, which includes Western Massachusetts. “For decades, Comcast has invested in building a national network that makes our data, voice and TV services widely available. Today, we’re taking that a step further by giving our customers the flexibility of a great in-home experience with our Xfinity services, along with the reliability of Verizon Wireless’ network while on the go.”

In addition to Western Massachusetts, Comcast and Verizon Wireless are extending these offers to several cities across California, Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia. Verizon Wireless and Comcast have previously introduced offers in other cities in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and Washington.
