Comcast testing 5G compatibility for its wireless carrier project
CFO Mike Cavanagh also tuned in, affirming that Comcast will sell phones like the other wireless carriers, with monthly installment plans. Predictably, phone purchases will be bundled with Comcast's cable and internet services, offering savings. Additionally, the future carrier is testing 5G network compatibility while admitting it needs "space, power, and backhaul" to complete the effort.
Overall, Comcast appears quite determined to enter the wireless carrier market. Bundling its services and smartphone plans together seems like a sound business decision, potentially offering customers better value and increased simplicity. We'll learn more about the initiative as the middle of the year approaches.
