Comcast Launches Hosted Microsoft Communication Services for SMBs

Comcast launched hosted Microsoft Communication Services for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), providing corporate- class e-mail, calendaring and document sharing. Comcast is the only major U.S. Internet service provider to make this product available at no additional cost with its broadband services.

Features and benefit of Microsoft Communication Services include:

  • Enabling SMB teams to share documents and access calendars, track tasks, and e-mail and collaboration solutions based on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

  • Removing barriers of up-front costs, help desk support and ongoing system maintenance

  • Extending the boundaries of the "office" to anywhere there's Internet

Microsoft Communication Services is the first major product to be launched in conjunction with Comcast's introduction of high-speed Internet, phone and video services for small businesses across the country. http://www.comcast.com
