WEST PALM BEACH/TAMPA, FL — Verizon Wireless and Comcast today announced they will sell each other’s services throughout Florida and deliver a variety of offers and incentives for new and existing customers.  Now, consumers from the Panhandle to South Florida, who are looking to stay connected to the people and things they love while on the go or at home,  have new options for outstanding video, phone, Internet and wireless services.

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 Comcast HD DVR at no additional cost for six months, and/or a complementary 12-month upgrade to Blast!, the Xfinity Internet service that provides download speeds of up to 30 Mbps with PowerBoost®.  Also, eligible customers could now qualify for 12 months free of AnyPlay from Xfinity, which enables customers to choose to use their home Wi-Fi service to stream their live TV subscription to their iPad and Android tablets within the home.

“Our momentum with Comcast in delivering these value packages in other markets is continually receiving  praise and high satisfaction from customers,” said Pam Tope, Verizon Wireless Florida region president.  “Because mobility is a top priority for the consumer, we have developed an offering that provides a terrific wireless, entertainment and communications experience in one spot.  Comcast’s product suite combined with  the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is the ideal complement to complete the package.”

“Together with Verizon Wireless, we’re delivering more value for more consumers by providing an entertainment and communications solution that aligns with their lifestyles.  Now, Comcast customers in throughout Florida will have the option of building a great in-home experience through our Xfinity services, along with the reliability of Verizon Wireless’ network while on the go,” said Amy Smith, Comcast’s Senior Vice Preseident of the Florida Region
