Comcast passed the 1 million subscriber mark for its IP-based Comcast Digital Voice service. The company achieved the milestone less than two years after commercializing the service.
Comcast also recently became the first broadband provider to surpass 10 million high-speed Internet customers.
The company said it is finding success with its $33 per product first-year bundle of phone, high-speed and video services. Comcast had expected to hire 3,000 new employees to support the success of its triple play bundle, but said it recently revised its plans to add 1,000 more employees beyond that. The new jobs include 3,000 front-line technicians and 1,000 customer care representatives who will install, maintain and provide support for the company’s services, as well as managerial and sales positions.
