Moving to a new place? Comcast wants to help with your ‘digital’ move
As one of the busiest moving periods of the year approaches, Comcast Corp. is promoting its Movers Edge program as a way of making a move to a new home a little less stressful.
In the Internet age, though, moving isn’t just about filling out change-of-address forms and hauling sofas and book-cases from Point A to Point B; it’s also about moving an individual’s “digital” presence, says Comcast, a company that provides of a range of entertainment and information services such as Internet service and cable TV.
According to Comcast, its Movers Edge program is designed to reduce the stress of a person’s “digital” move by ensuring that people can get their Xfinity TV, Internet, and phone services up and running quickly in their new homes.
To that end, Comcast has set up a special Web page at http://www.comcast.com/move-transfer.html that connects consumers to specialists who can answer questions about either setting up or transferring a customer’s Xfinity services.
“With more than 68 percent of households having broadband access, today’s connected consumer views having Internet, cable, and phone service in a new home just as much a priority as things like electricity and hot water,” Tom Karinshak, a Comcast senior vice president of customer experience, said in a statement.Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
