Verizon Wireless And Comcast Team Up To Deliver Great Video Entertainment, Communications And Internet Experiences In New Florida Markets

Stocks in this article: CMCSACMCSKVODVZ

Verizon Wireless and Comcast today announced they will sell each other’s services in additional markets across Florida including Southwest Florida (Estero, Fort Myers, Port Charlotte, and Naples); Central Florida (Altamonte Springs, Clermont, Inverness, Kissimmee Orlando, and Sebring); and Treasure Coast (Port St. Lucie and Stuart). Together, the companies will deliver a variety of offers and incentives for new and existing customers in these Florida markets and other markets which were launched earlier this year. Now, consumers looking to stay connected to the people and things they love while at home or on the go 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 30 Mbps with PowerBoost ®.

“Our momentum with Comcast in delivering these value packages in other markets is continually receiving praise and high satisfaction from customers,” said Pam Tope, Florida Region president for Verizon Wireless. “Because mobility is a top priority for the consumer, we have developed an offering that provides a terrific wireless, entertainment and communications experience in one spot. Comcast’s product suite combined with the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is the ideal complement to complete the package.”

Barbara Hagen, Area Vice President for Comcast in Southwest Florida said, “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. 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 also giving our customers the flexibility and reliability of Verizon Wireless’ network to access their Xfinity services while on the go.”
