Comcast’s New Wireless Service Coming to Xfinity Stores in Illinois and NW Indiana
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 the Chicago area, Central Illinois and Northwest Indiana. Comcast is introducing the service in its retail stores market-by-market – this is the first group of Xfinity Stores in the Midwest to make the service available.
“We’re excited to be one of the first areas of the country to unveil Xfinity Mobile at Xfinity Stores in retail,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region senior vice president. “Retail is a great way for us to demonstrate how Xfinity Mobile integrates with our other Xfinity products including X1, Xfinity Home, and xFi – and our goal is to ensure they leave knowing a lot more about our capabilities and the benefits of being a Comcast customer.”
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 – including more than 1.6 million in Illinois and Northwest Indiana – 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 – Now through July 31, $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.
