Report: Comcast to Add 250,000 New Broadband Subs in Q2

5 Aug, 2009 By: Erik Gruenwedel

The nation’s largest cable operator Comcast Communications is expected to add 250,000 net new broadband subscribers when it releases second quarter results later this week, according to analyst firm Strategy Analytics.

Boston-based Strategy said the increase during the summer months, which it characterizes as the weakest for broadband service providers, brings Comcast’s broadband customer base to about 15.5 million subs.

“Ninety-six percent of Americans would hold on to their broadband service, even if economic circumstances forced them to cut back household budgets,” said Ben Piper, analyst director with Strategy Analytics.
