Comcast allowing free phone calls to Japan to help people stay in touch

Comcast is now allowing free calls to Japan for people using its Xfinity voice service. Those customers are both residences and businesses using its Business Class service.

The plan is to provide free calls from now through April 10, allowing people to reach friends and loved ones in Japan.

“We want to help ensure our customers with loved ones living in or visiting Japan have the means to remain in close contact with them during this difficult time,” according to Cathy Avgiris, GM for Communications and Data Services with Comcast.
