Vermont Business Magazine Comcast announced that Xfinity Mobile, a new wireless service designed for the way people use their phones today, is beginning to roll out in Xfinity Stores in Vermont. Comcast is introducing the service in its retail stores market-by-market and it is now available at the Xfinity Store in South Burlington. “We’re excited to be one of the first areas of the country to unveil Xfinity Mobile at Xfinity Stores,” said Michael Parker, senior vice president for Comcast’s Western New England Region, which includes Vermont. “Xfinity Stores are the ultimate showcase for consumers to experience how Xfinity Mobile integrates with our other Xfinity products including X1, Xfinity Home, and xFi – and our goal is to ensure our customers leave knowing a lot more about our capabilities and the benefits of being a Comcast customer.”
The press release says Xfinity Mobile combines the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network with the largest WiFi network of more than 17 million hotspots nationwide to support a seamless internet and entertainment experience inside and out of the home. Available to all Xfinity Internet customers, the service is designed to save customers money with up to five lines included, unlimited nationwide talk and text, and no line access fees.
Each Xfinity Mobile customer receives 100 MB of shared data across all lines on the account to get them started, and the freedom to choose from two straightforward data options:
- Unlimited – $45 per month, per line on up to five lines with no usage limits1.
- By the Gig – $12 per GB of shared cellular data across all lines on an account each month.
Using the Xfinity Mobile app, customers can easily “switch and save” on their data plan – changing from “By the Gig” to “Unlimited” data options at any time during their billing cycle for no additional cost and then switching back to “By the Gig” at the beginning of the next billing cycle. In addition, with Xfinity Mobile, families can mix-and-match on an account so that each individual has the data option that makes sense for them.
Xfinity Mobile offers the most popular devices on the market today. Payment options for devices include monthly installments across a 24-month period, or a one-time, upfront payment of the full retail price of the phone.
Sales of Xfinity Mobile, both online and through call centers, began in all of Comcast’s service areas on May 17.
