Free SaaS Exchange and Windows SharePoint Services for Comcast small business customers

Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSK, CMCSA), the nation’s leading provider of cable, entertainment and communications products and services, and Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions, have launched a new Internet-based communications product for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), giving SMBs access to services that have traditionally only been available to larger companies with IT staffs. Comcast’s SMB customers will be the first in the country to receive Microsoft Communication Services from Comcast, which will provide them with corporate-class e-mail, calendaring and document sharing. This product is Internet-based, so SMBs do not need additional server capacity, and is backed by 24x7 Business Class customer support from Comcast, which will serve as an SMB’s “help desk.”

Comcast is the only major U.S. Internet service provider to make this product available at no additional cost with its broadband services.
