Comcast introduces ‘Xfinity Mobile’ wireless service

As we began to wrap things up last week, Comcast announced a new wireless service called ‘Xfinity Mobile’. We first heard about the possibility of an MVNO earlier in the year, but now it has gone official.

Comcast confirmed its launch of Xfinity Mobile, which is a wireless service for mobile devices that will stand aside the company’s home phone, internet, and TV offerings. Comcast with be creating the MVNO with help from America’s largest carrier by subscribers in Verizon Wireless, who will provide the network.

Xfinity Mobile has a few plan options for those interested. $65 per month will get you unmeasured talk, text and data. For $15 less on a monthly basis, consumers can get the same deal shall they be enrolled in any of the existing Comcast services for TV, home phone etc. Comcast will also offer a pay as you go plan that will allow customers to pay on a per GB basis. It’ll go for $12 per GB of data consumed.

In terms of supported phones, at launch, the Xfinity Mobile will work on Samsung’s Galaxy S7 models or new Galaxy S8 devices, the LG X Power, or Apple’s iPhone 7 (not that we recommend it). Comcast’s new wireless service will open to the public “soon” as is currently in the final testing phase. Those of you interested can sign up here to register for email updates.
