With this new offering, Comcast Business Services now provides its customers a single, trusted source of support for the computers, tablets, mobile devices, servers and networks that power their small business. “Our small business customers have been telling us they need help keeping up with and getting ahead of today's ever-evolving technology,” said Daniel Herscovici, Vice President of Signature Support at Comcast. “Whether it's setting up a network, helping a small business get its employees connected remotely, removing a virus, or providing critical cloud-based data back-up, our new Business Class Signature Support service enables customers to meet their growing technology requirements.” With Business Class Signature Support, small business customers will have access to experienced IT specialists who can provide advanced technical support online, over the phone, or in-person at their convenience. Customers will be able to choose from several monthly packages ranging from round-the-clock remote support, onsite assistance and extended warranties. In addition, Comcast will offer one-time services such as virus removal, system set-up and wired and wireless network connectivity. Comcast Business Services is initially launching Business Class Signature Support across its Northeast Division, which includes 14 states from Maine through Virginia and the District of Columbia. The service will be made available in the remainder of the company's markets later this year.
