Comcast ranks the telcos

Comcast chief operating officer Steve Burke said the cable TV giant sees Verizon as more of a competitive threat than AT&T in the TV market. He noted that Verizon has taken some of its cable TV customers, and that AT&T may be a future threat, though he also said the customers lost to the telco may be analog customers and not from Comcast's premium batch of higher-spending digital TV customers.

Meanwhile, Comcast is eyeing future growth for itself in business services, but I'm willing to bet the telcos Burke sized up wouldn't acknowledge Comcast's presence and effect in their markets enough to return the favor.
