In short, sign up with Comcast HSI and you get Norton 360 for free excluding the online storage feature. Residential customers get 7 copies and business customers get 25.

I recently made the decision to switch to Comcast Business Class Internet. The DSL service. One of the free extras Comcast offers with it’s High Speed Internet service is “Norton Business Suite” software. If you are looking at Comcast residential High Speed Internet you can get basically the same product with the name “Norton Security Suite”.
