What’s Comcast Up To?

You may have asked yourself that very same question. Here are some answers. Comcast is doing plenty of stuff. They’re testing a new video conferencing service in partnership with Skype that will one day be offered to all Comcast Xfinity subscribers. The cable giant is also expanding its Xfinity Home Security service (tested in Houston in 2010) by offering it in seven new markets. They’re also expanding the reach of “Xfinity Signature Support,” which offers tech support for home networks and PCs, to several new areas. Finally, they’ve announced that they’ve teamed with Intersections Incorporated to offer free identity theft protection services, which include the “Constant Guard Protection Suite.” The Suite provides, among other things, one-click secure log-in to banks, password storage, credit card protection, and keystroke concealment.
