The 2018 Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) Business Analyst Conference explored how Comcast Business is helping its customers go “Beyond Fast.” The story arc over the day-and-a-half gathering highlighted Comcast Business’ emphasis on how it not only equips companies with connectivity but also helps them realize the business innovation and customer experience capabilities they truly desire to grow their own businesses.
Offering the best last-mile gigabit broadband coverage in the U.S. is the foundation of Comcast Business’ strategy; however, the unit and its leadership are focused not merely on promoting accelerated data speeds but also on leveraging Comcast Business’ growing network capabilities and business-enabling portfolio to underpin and advance its customers’ digital transformation initiatives. Customer testimonials were a focal point of the event as technology executives within the sporting venue and quick-service restaurant (QSR) industries shared and extolled how Comcast Business’ solutions have helped to enhance customer experiences, improve operational efficiency and reduce costs.
Though Comcast Business’ portfolio is maturing, Comcast Business continues to innovate with significant opportunities ahead, as the unit seeks to gain market share and increase revenue from its existing solutions. Unlike its largest competitors — AT&T (NYSE: T), Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL) — Comcast Business is not encumbered by legacy assets, which has enabled the company to sustain double-digit year-to-year revenue growth over the past 30 consecutive quarters. Comcast Business has the potential to take up to $60 billion in market share from its main rivals as the company targets continued growth through its broadband services and adjacent solutions in areas including managed services, SD-WAN, unified communications, security and video.
