Comcast Cable has launched IP-based voice services in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The MSO introduced the service, dubbed Comcast Digital Voice, in 52 cities there, offering primary line service, plus voicemail, E911 support and a full set of calling features.

Comcast said it plans to launch CDV to the "remaining majority" of Bay Area communities over the next three to four months. Overall, the operator has launched CDV in more than 20 markets serving north of 15 million homes.

When bundled with other Comcast services, the new voice offering sells for about $39.95 per month.

Elsewhere, Comcast has sealed a deal to promote and market its voice, video and data services in about 500 Wall-Mart stores based in Comcast-served areas. The retail giant will feature Comcast's triple play via its "Connection Centers," which will feature an "integrated broadband kit" with Motorola's SB5120 modem and self-install software for $59.97.
