LIVERMORE, Calif., March 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK), one of the nation's leading providers of communications products and services, is making its 100 Mbps high-speed Internet service available to businesses in California.
The 100 Mbps download/10 Mbps upload speed tier is one of the fastest broadband services available in the nation and is ideal for data-intensive businesses that have the need for speed. Comcast Business Class 100 Mbps/10 Mbps solution is up to 60 times faster than download speeds for a T1 line (1.5 Mbps). With download speeds of up to 100 Mbps, customers will be able to operate their businesses more efficiently and productively than ever.
"Internet speeds this fast are a game changer for businesses," said Bill Stemper, president of Comcast Business Services. "100 Mbps provides the bandwidth required for an office full of people to access the hosted, cloud-based services that are fueling business productivity while also reducing costs."
Comcast is also making its scalable voice solution called Comcast Business Class Trunks available to businesses in California. Comcast Business Class Trunks provide a connection between the customer's telephone system (their PBX) and the Comcast network. A customer can choose to have any number of voice channels—essentially simultaneous usable phone lines—from six all the way up to 23.
"Our scalable voice trunking solution enables businesses with more sophisticated communications needs or multiple locations to have a reliable phone service," said Mark O'Leary, Regional Vice President of Business Services for Comcast California. "Since our IP network is physically separate and diverse from leased or public facilities, disruptions to other networks do not impact the performance of our network. Plus, when Comcast Business Class Trunks are coupled with lightning-fast Comcast Business Class Internet, business owners can save up to 20 percent over other offerings."
With Comcast Business Class Trunks, every employee in a business has the option of their own direct line (instead of a main line with extension). In addition, as the business grows, trunks and employee phone numbers can easily and efficiently increase.
Comcast Business Class Internet is a comprehensive business solution that includes Microsoft Communication Services (valued at more than $500), a world-class productivity suite that combines Windows® SharePoint and Microsoft Outlook email powered by Microsoft Exchange Server, for no additional fee. In addition, Comcast's Internet includes Norton Business Suite™ software (up to a $490 retail value), which offers PCs protection from viruses and spyware.
