Comcast Unveils Xfinity Mobile

By offering what (at least on first glance) appears to be a serious discount on wireless service to existing Comcast internet customers. That area covers markets across the nation, but is missing in places such as New York City and Los Angeles. The company's total addressable customer base is 29 million, with a total base of 130 million addressable mobile lines in its territory, they said. Comcast is making it clear that it is not looking to become a major player in the industry.

Consumers are enjoying a particularly competitive stretch between the major wireless companies, as they jockey to steal each other's customers with better unlimited data deals.

Xfinity Mobile is also going to rely on Comcast's network of more than 16 million Wi-Fi hotspots.

Comcast executives outlined their mobile plans to challenge phone giants like AT&T, which has agreed to acquire Time Warner for $85.4 billion, and Verizon as they roll out pay TV-style online services, such as DirecTV Now launched late in 2016, amid continuing convergence.

It's supposed to reduce the load on Verizon's network and ultimately cost less money, but it could end up being a headache for Comcast.

There are no monthly "line access fees", so the full prices are as quoted above, plus the usual taxes and other fees. According to the NPD Group, a market research company, approximately 80 percent of smartphone data is used over Wi-Fi. Xfinity Mobile is limited to people who already get internet, television, or home phone services from the provider.

Comcast's service will support iPhones, high-end Samsung phones, as well as more modest handsets from LG. Bring your own device models won't be supported initially.

The mobile devices would automatically find, connect to, and authenticate wifi connections. The unlimited plan includes unlimited talk and text, and there is no per line access charge. About 70% of customers use less than 5 GB per month, Butz says. Additionally, each line will cost $65 per line for all-you-can eat data. A Comcast phone plan could therefore cost just $12 a month for 1GB of data and unlimited talking and texting. Paying Verizon for bandwidth is a prudent way to start. $65 per line on up to five lines with no usage limits, or $45 per line for our customers with our best X1 packages.

This history of deception should lead you to second-guess the new Xfinity Wireless program.

In recent months, USA wireless carriers Verizon Communications Inc VZ.N , AT&T Inc T.N , T-Mobile US Inc TMUS.O and Sprint Corp S.N have offered unlimited data plans ranging from $50 a month for a single line to $90 monthly. Oh, you want to know which carrier's network Comcast will use?
