On Monday, Verizon and Comcast confirmed a joint working relationship in select markets that could foreshadow a larger enterprise down the road.

Today, they announced they will offer each other’s services in Atlanta and roll out a variety of offers and incentives for both new and existing customers.

In addition to Atlanta, Georgia, Comcast and Verizon Wireless are expanding the offer to five additional markets today: Chicago; Colorado; Kansas City, Mo.; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.; and Salt Lake City.
