Earlier this year, Comcast announced its own MVNO, a brand new wireless service that accesses Verizon Wireless’s network called Xfinity Mobile.
And now that service is available. There are two rate plans to choose from. The first of which costs $12 per gigabyte of data usage, and also offers unlimited access to text and talk. The other rate plan runs $45 per month for X1 Infinity Internet customers for unlimited data, talk, and text. It will cost $65 per month for everyone else.
However, for a limited time Comcast is offering the $45 per month, per line deal to all of its internet customers. So even if you can’t access, or just don’t want to access, the X1 infinity bundle option, you can still sign up for the MVNO at a slightly discounted per month rate.
The unlimited plan comes with a soft cap, too. If you use more than 20GB of data per month, Comcast says it will reduce your internet speed down to 1.5Mbps, so be aware of that.
It’s also worth noting that you can’t bring your own device to this MVNO, so you’ll have to buy one from Xfinity Mobile. They have the PRODUCT(RED) iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus available, as well as the more traditional color options, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and the iPhone SE as well. The MVNO also has a few Android-based options as well.
With the new service now live, do you plan on taking advantage of the MVNO’s rate plans?[via Xfinity Mobile]
