Back in April of this year, Comcast officially announced its own wireless service called Xfinity Mobile, with plans to launch it before the summer kicked off. And sure enough, Xfinity Mobile is now live and available to purchase for those interested.
As previously reported, Xfinity MobileÂ has two different plan options. The first is priced at $12 per gigabyte and also includes unlimited voice and text.
The other rate plan is an unlimited data, talk, and text option. It is priced at $45 per month for Comcast’s Xfinity X1 internet customers, or $65 per month for everyone else. However, Comcast is hosting a limited time deal that allowsÂ any of its internet customers toÂ pick up an Xfinity Mobile plan for $45 per month per line.
With the unlimited data plan, there is one thing to be aware of. If you surpass 20GB per month, Comcast will throttle your network speed down to 1.5Mbps.
Also worth mentioning is thatÂ you cannot bring your own device to Xfinity Mobile. That means you’ll need to pick up one of the 12 phones the MVNO has available right now.
Here are the available devices:
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Samsung Galaxy S8+
- Samsung Galaxy S7
- Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
- LG X power
- Apple iPhone 7 and PRODUCT(RED)
- Apple iPhone 7 Plus and PRODUCT(RED)
- Apple iPhone 6s
- Apple iPhone 6s Plus
- Apple iPhone SE
So, now that Xfinity Mobile is available, do you plan on subscribing to the new MVNO on the block?
