Comcast adds 555,000 voice customers

Cable TV giant Comcast added 555,000 voice customers during the second quarter, an impressive number from a company that claims to be gaining a percentage point in voice market share every quarter, but actually 21 percent lower than the voice subsciber additions its posted in the second quarter of 2007, and well off its first quarter 2008 additions of 639,000.

Comcast also lost 138,000 basic cable subscribers during the second quarter, while adding 320,000 digital cable customers. The company reported a second quarter profit of $632 million, a 7.5 percent increase over Q2 2007, but short of some Wall Street expectations.
