Comcast Launches IP-Enabled Phone Service in Sacramento, Roseville, Marysville/Yuba City and Grass Valley Areas

Central California Becomes the Latest Region to Offer a Full Suite of Comcast Products for the Connected Home -- Television, Hig

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast announced today the launch of Comcast Digital Voice in several Central California communities, including Sacramento, Roseville, Davis, Placerville, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Marysville, and Yuba City. Comcast's IP-enabled voice service offers customers digital-quality phone service with unlimited direct-dial local and domestic long-distance calling (including Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico), Web access to voicemail, E911 service, and 12 of the most popular calling features.*

"Comcast is excited to offer the residents of these Central California communities the reliable and innovative voice services they want, with Comcast Digital Voice," said Joseph A. Gamble, Senior Vice President for Comcast Central California. "Our privately managed network serves as a strong foundation for the voice, television and high-speed Internet products of today and tomorrow, and will completely coordinate the home entertainment and communication experience, all on one integrated bill."

Comcast anticipates launching Comcast Digital Voice to the remaining majority of Central California communities, including Elk Grove, Galt, Chico, Fresno, Merced, Modesto, Stockton and Visalia, using a phased approach during the next one to two months.**

Comcast Digital Voice answers the call for a reliable phone service. Comcast Digital Voice is a less-expensive, fully featured alternative for traditional phone service with online call management, Web access to voicemail, and only one bill for all Comcast services. That is why Comcast guarantees that Comcast Digital Voice customers will be satisfied, or receive a refund for the first 30 days of service.

Comcast Digital Voice is designed to be easy for the consumer. Comcast technicians will professionally install Comcast Digital Voice in the home - converting the jacks and existing wiring in the home. Customers can keep their current phone numbers and make and receive an unlimited amount of direct-dial local and domestic long-distance calls for as little as $33 per month. Comcast also offers very competitive international rates, including unlimited calling to Canada.

Comcast stresses quality and reliability. Unlike traditional Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) offerings that run on the public Internet, Comcast Digital Voice calls originate and travel over Comcast's advanced, proprietary managed network. Furthermore, if power goes out in the home, Comcast customers can rest assured knowing Comcast Digital Voice is equipped with up to five hours of battery back-up.

Comcast Digital Voice has Enhanced 911. Comcast has access to the network, systems and capabilities to handle 911/E911 calls the way that traditional phone companies do, ensuring that calls, location information and telephone numbers are transmitted to the correct local emergency responders.

Comcast Digital Voice customers will also receive innovative features including:

-- Web access to voicemail -- Compatibility with a majority of home alarm systems -- Ability to manage their account online -- Customers who have Comcast Digital Voice and Comcast High-Speed Internet have the ability to use the Digital Voice Center (Web portal) to manage their voice and email messages from one central location.

Comcast Digital Voice is currently available in more than 60 markets nationwide (including San Francisco/Bay Area, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Denver, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Detroit, Portland, Salt Lake City and Indianapolis), reaching more than 32.4 million homes. Comcast is one of the largest cable telephone providers in the United States, with more than 2.5 million phone customers and nearly nine years of experience in the phone business.

*Editor's Note: 12 most popular calling features include 3-way calling, anonymous call rejection, call forwarding, call return, call screening, call waiting, caller ID, caller ID blocking, caller ID with call waiting, repeat dialing, speed dial and enhanced voicemail.

**Editor's Note: The list of cities where Comcast Digital Voice will be available on March 30 is attached.
