Verizon Wireless and Comcast announced several more markets where they will be co-marketing each other’s services.

In addition to the markets in Michigan and Georgia, Comcast and Verizon Wireless are expanding the offer to several cities across Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee today.
Verizon Wireless and Comcast have been co-marketing products in Atlanta, Chicago, Colorado, Kansas City, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Portland, Ore., Salt Lake City, San Francisco and Seattle.
Based on the package chosen, customers of both Comcast and Verizon Wireless could qualify for a variety of offers and incentives, including Visa prepaid cards valued up to $300, a complimentary 12-month subscription to Xfinity Streampix, a Comcast HD DVR at no additional cost for six months, and/or a complimentary 12-month upgrade to Blast! – the Xfinity Internet service that provides download speeds of up to 30 Mbps with PowerBoost.
The MSO has begun offering the wireless service in several areas in Michigan and in a number of cities in states across the Southeast.
