PHILADELPHIA -- January 30, 2013

Comcast, a global media and technology company, today announced Comcast
Business Hospitality, a new product suite consisting of Ethernet, Internet,
video and voice services packaged in one integrated offering customized for
the hospitality industry. Available across its entire service area, Comcast’s
new product suite enables hotels and motels to leverage advanced technology
from a single provider to improve the guest experience, streamline back-office
operations and reduce costs.

As the line between business and pleasure continues to blur for many
travelers, seamless connectivity and high-speed Internet access are in high
demand. With Comcast Business Hospitality, hotels and motels can provide their
guests with fast and reliable Internet connectivity, quality voice services
and up to 60 high-definition (HD) channels in each room – and the services
scale quickly to meet growing business needs, seasonal demands and other peak
usage periods.

“The needs of today’s modern traveler are changing, and high-performance
connectivity is now just as important as price, location and loyalty programs
when selecting a hotel,” said Alexandra Sewell, senior director of Hospitality
Services and Cross-Segment Verticals, Comcast Business Services. “Hospitality
decision makers must adapt to support this trend, and Comcast Business
Hospitality offers them an easy way to do so by packaging scalable,
cutting-edge technology with a fast and reliable network – without
complicating back-end operations. In an extremely competitive market, this is
a vital business differentiator for hotel properties.”

The combination of Comcast’s broad portfolio of services, high-performance
network and dedicated hospitality support team make it uniquely suited to meet
the needs of the hospitality industry. Comcast operates and supports its
advanced network, which is separate and diverse from traditional telecom
carrier networks and serves 20 of the nation’s 25 largest markets. The
strength and reach of Comcast’s network, which is a result of decades of
investments by the company, provides hotels with a reliable connection – even
across geographically dispersed properties – and enables them to deliver
seamless data, video and voice services, including:

  *Business Hospitality Ethernet – Provides fast, reliable and secure network
    connectivity and scalable bandwidth from 1 Megabit per second (Mbps) to 10
    Gigabits per second (Gbps). Hospitality organizations can easily and
    quickly adjust their bandwidth levels based on guest demand – often by
    simply placing a phone call.
  *Business Hospitality Internet – Offers a range of speeds to address
    changing needs, including download speeds of up to 100 Mbps and upload
    speeds of up to 10 Mbps. Additionally, the service equips IT departments
    with two modems – one for the property’s back office and one for hotel
    guests – so they can better manage network traffic and maintain fast
    browsing speeds for guests surfing the Web.
  *Business Hospitality TV – Provides quality HD video service with up to 60
    HD channels. Designed specifically for the hospitality industry, Comcast’s
    HD video services are delivered via a single piece of equipment that
    enables property managers to remotely manage video feeds – simplifying
    upkeep and maintenance and providing for better design aesthetics, as set
    top equipment is no longer required in guest rooms.
  *Business Hospitality Voice – Provides hotel properties with full-featured
    phone lines, including call management and other advanced business
  *Business Hospitality Trunks – Connects legacy PBX equipment with Comcast’s
    advanced IP network, enabling hotels and motels – and their guests – to
    experience next-generation voice services. Property managers can also
    remain confident that their investments in existing technology will be
