"As customers create and consume more digital media content, the need for online backup and storage increases significantly. Backup devices, like an external hard drive, can be lost, stolen or damaged in a fire and even if you put your backup device in a safe-deposit box, you probably aren’t updating it regularly," Cathy Avgiris, senior vice president and general manager of communications and data services for Comcast, said in a statement.
Comcast's high-speed Internet customers get 2 GB of storage
free. Those who need more can pay $4.99 a month or $49.99 annually for
50 GB of storage or $9.99 monthly/$99.99 annually for 200 GB of
storage. A personalized web site gives customers a platform from which
to share the data with others.
