The service was already launched in a circle of a limited audience in some markets sometime back and it is only today that the company is making the offer public. The company on Thursday announced that its Verizon and Wi-Fi-powered Xfinity Mobile service is now available nationwide in all Comcast service areas. The cool thing about this service is that it bundles normal cellular data with access to the large network of Xfinity WiFi hotspots.
"We created a unique mobile experience that's simple and saves customers money by connecting to our nationwide Wi-Fi network, and allows them to only pay for the data they use", said Greg Butz, president of Xfinity Mobile. The company says that this means that almost 70% of users are able to connect to hot spots on the go.
With Xfinity Mobile, you can pay $45 for any heavy data users in your family, and $25 a month for those who just need a few gigs of data.
Most consumers can save 30 percent on their wireless bill with Xfinity Mobile compared to other providers.
Every gig of "shared cellular data across all lines on an account each month" costs $12, though you can also opt for unlimited service at $45 per month per line for up to five members of the same family or group of very close friends.
The service is built on a wholesale agreement with Verizon, with Comcast using the No. 1 wireless operator's own marketing language to tout what it calls "the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network".
We have to mention that there are many other cell phone plans in the same price range with more phone options, including Sprint's $50 a month deal on the first line of unlimited service. If you're renting the device, the entire amount is due if you don't maintain at least your Xfinity TV, internet, voice or mobile service.
