"Anyone can get our Comcast Digital Voice service – regardless of what kind of cable service they have (analog or digital) and they can have it as a single product or also chose to take our other products as well (high-speed Internet and/or cable). For the Enhanced Cordless Phone that is mentioned within the release I sent over (which hasn’t launched yet), a customer would want to have our high-speed internet to really enjoy and experience all of the integrated services and advanced functionality that come with that (i.e. – ability to view e-mail and voicemail, IM and access yellow pages).
