Xfinity Labor Day Sale 2022 – If you already have Comcast internet or TV service, you can get a cell phone plan through Xfinity Mobile. When you think about it, it makes a lot of sense for a lot of people.
It turns out plenty of people are willing to take Comcast up on that offer. As of the end of last year, 2.8 million people were using Xfinity Mobile, which launched in 2017.
Because Comcast began erecting its own cellular towers, that explosive growth never occurred. Because it relies on one or more major carriers’ networks to deliver its service, Xfinity Mobiile can be considered an MVNO (or mobile virtual network operator). In Comcast’s case, Verizon’s network and the internet provider’s own Wi-Fi hotspots are used together with Verizon’s 5G coverage.
As with Comcast’s other offerings, bundling is key with Xfinity Mobile. In fact, you aren’t even eligible for Xfinity Mobile if you don’t already do business with Comcast, or are willing to make the company your internet service provider. Meet that criteria, and Xfinity Mobile service could be yours, with unlimited talk, text and data only costing you $45 each month.
When it comes to cell phone service, is it wise to go with Comcast? Here’s a closer look at the rest of the details to see if Xfinity Mobile is right for you.
Xfinity Mobile: How it works
Xfinity Mobile is available exclusively to Comcast subscribers. The wireless service relies on Verizon’s network (the clear winner in our fastest wireless networks testing), along with access to Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide.
If you subscribe, you can pick between an unlimited data plan and paying only for the data you use. Unlimited nationwide talk and text are included regardless of your data choice. Xfinity Mobile users pay no access fees for up to five lines. Some carriers charge subscribers as much as $20 per line in access fees on top of their regular monthly data plan rate, though for unlimited plans, those access fees are often baked into the monthly rate.

Comcast TV subscribers will be able to use the Xfinity Stream TV App on their smartphone to stream live TV, on-demand content and shows stored on a cloud-DVR, no matter where they are; it will count against your data allotment, though, if you don’t have an unlimited plan with the carrier. I’ll get to that in a sec.
Xfinity Mobile’s prices vary from $15 a month up to $60 a month, depending on the options you choose. Taxes and fees, which vary from state to state, are not included.
The bare minimum $15 plan gets you 1GB of data along with unlimited talk and text. If your usage exceeds 1GB, you’ll be billed $15 per additional GB. Comcast unfortunately rounds up, so 2.1GB or 2.9GB of data usage would both be treated as 3GB, and cost you $45. This is different from something like Google Fi, which refunds you for the data that you don’t use.
Xfinity upgraded For new customers with multiple lines sharing the same pool of data, we charge by the gigabyte. Under the new system, you choose the amount of data you want to use upfront, with reduced costs for the more data you use. For example, whereas 1GB normally costs $15, 3GB costs $30 and 10GB is just $60.
Video streaming in HD resolution and LTE hotspot speeds are both included in the Gig plans. A Data Saver feature lowers video resolution to 480p and slows down hotspot speeds to 600 kbps, all in the name of preventing you from going over your data limit and racking up a higher monthly bill than you counted on.
