Comcast now #4
Comcast is now the 4th largest telco, delivering Comcast Digital Voice to 4.1 million residential customers. As Andy Abramson at VOIP Watch writes, "This shows the marketing power of cable TV and a local presence. They indicate they are going after the business market next with voice and have rolled out three new applications. Expect to see the other cable companies follow suit." It only took Comcast 3 years to surpass Vonage's numbers and to overtake Embarq (formerly Sprint as the largest telco provider after the RBOC's - T, VZ, QW). BTW, they did this by selling residential service only.
