The article reports that the cable company Cablevision Systems Corp. is confident that it can penetrate the commercial-telephone market by offering low prices, secured data and voice products in the U.S. The company believes that such initiative is a big opportunity because that it has gained credibility as a voice provider. However, its competitor, Comcast Corp., aims to offer commercial telephony in 2007 because it refuses to believe that Cablevision will reduce prices to attract customers.
