The article focuses on the plans of cable operator Comcast Corp. to offer three-product bundle of voice, video and data services in 2007 in the U.S. According to chief operating officer Steve Burke of Comcast, he thinks that the focus for 2007 is triple play which is different than starting to roll out phones. Burke assesses that rolling out commercial phone will take a lot of capital, and that the high return on investment inherent in commercial phone will calm any investor fears.
