Comcast Begins Mobile Phone Service

Boston and Portland, Oregon has lucked out and became the first cities offering Comcast's mobile phone service. Comcast will be offering a "triple play" (or three-way, as I like to call it because you are getting boned multiple times) package that will include cable TV, Internet and mobile phone service. The mobile service will tack on an extra $33 per month for 200 minutes of service and include the usual voicemail, and other services.

Other cable companies such as Time Warner and Cox will also be jumping on the mobile phone bandwagon with service available in 2007.
