The article focuses on service bundles offered by several companies in New Jersey, which include high speed Internet access, television programming and telephone services. The state's longtime cable television operators including Comcast and Cablevision Systems believes that bundling such services will ensure customer loyalty. Verizon Communications is also offering bundled services, after a legislation was passed that allows telecommunication providers to seek statewide franchise rights instead of a town-by-town basis.
