Comcast Extends AT&T Pact

AT&T Corp. will support Comcast Corp.’s “Comcast Digital Voice” service under terms of an extension of their existing agreement, announced Wednesday.

AT&T Global Wholesale Services will supply nationwide transport and termination services that will enable the MSO’s voice-over-Internet-protocol customers to enjoy higher-quality telephony services, the two parties said.

“We are pleased to continue our relationship with AT&T," Comcast Voice Services senior vice president of finance and administration Catherine Avgiris said in a prepared statement. "AT&T's networking expertise, coupled with their nationwide coverage, provides us with additional means to deliver valuable services like our differentiated IP-based phone offering, Comcast Digital Voice, to our customers.”

AT&T Global Wholesale Services president Kathie Morrissey added, “Our flexible approach to networking provides Comcast the choices they require to deliver their services -- whether connectivity, voice services, content delivery, hosting, call-center solutions or applications.”
