"Reaching the two millionth customer right here in Michigan is a testament to the popularity of Comcast Digital Voice in this state. We know that as more customers compare costs, value and our superior technology they too will make the switch to Comcast Digital Voice." 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.
