    Bell Atlantic acquired GTE and renamed the new company Verizon

    Xfinity is a trademark brand name for Comcast services

    From the article you cited: Update: An official announcement from Comcast confirmed that it will, in fact, not be changing its corporate name, but rather branding its cable services as Xfinity.
