XFinity -- It's Comcastic!
Starting next week, Comcast will be rolling out a new brand name -- Xfinity -- for its cable television, telephone and Internet connection products beginning in Baltimore and 10 other markets.
The company is NOT changing its corporate name to Xfinity -- it's just the product offerings that will carry that new brand.
So, if you're a subscriber to any of its services, you may see the new name on your bill, but your money will still most definitely be going to the same ol' Comcast.
Comcast basically said the new name reflects all the changes and upgrades they've made to their cable, voice and Internet offerings in recent years.
Other markets that will see the name change and Xfinity-branded services include: Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Hartford, Augusta, Chattanooga, parts of the Bay Area and San Francisco, with more markets to come later this year, Comcast says.
So, what do you think of the name?
