                Xfinity Voice
                Reinventing residential phone service for the
                21st Century

   Overview     Xfinity® Voice offers digital quality phone service with all of the features that customers expect from their

                Xfinity Voice calls travel over Comcast’s proprietary managed IP network – not over the public Internet.
                Using a managed IP network gives Comcast the ability to provide service quality that may not be available

                call clarity.*
