Comcast’s quarterly profits exceed analysts’ expectations

    The numbers are looking good for Kabletown . . . I mean . . .  Comcast. The corporation pulled in $1 billion in profit in the fourth quarter and is expected to raise its dividends.

    As reported by the Philadelphia Business Journal, the company still lost some cable customers, but at a slower rate than it did in 2009. It was Internet, phone service and digital TV sales that drove profits up, though. The company brought in two million more Internet customers and one million additional phone customers in 2010.

    Replacing a remote at a service center; however, is still a nightmare.
