To help unite families and friends in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Comcast has announced it is providing free calls to Japan for its Xfinity Voice and Business Class Voice customers. For calls made to Japan by customers during the timeframe from March 11 through April 10, 2011, Comcast will remove these charges from customers’ bills. 

“Our hearts go out to all of the earthquake and tsunami victims and their families,” said Cathy Avgiris, SVP and General Manager, Communications and Data Services, Comcast. “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.”
