Verizon Wireless Teams With Comcast for Local Experiment

Verizon and Comcast are playing nicely with one another.

In what may strike some as a peculiar arrangement, Verizon Wireless and Comcast will sell each other’s services in Tucson and deliver a variety of offers and incentives for new and existing customers.

“Now, consumers in Tucson 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,” Verizon said today, while dancing around the issue of whether or not this opportunity may one day be available nationally.

But it looks like a national move could lie ahead. After all, in addition to Tucson, Comcast and Verizon Wireless are expanding these offers to several cities across Florida and New Mexico today. Verizon Wireless and Comcast have previously introduced this offer in other cities in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and Washington.

“Our work with Comcast in delivering these value packages in other markets continues to receive praise and drive high satisfaction from our customers,” said Andrés Irlando, president of Southwest Region for Verizon Wireless. “Because we know mobility is a top priority for consumers, we have an offering that combines the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network and Comcast’s product suite giving customers a stellar wireless, entertainment and communications experience.”
