Xfinity Mobile loses $189 million during the first quarter despite adding 196,000 new subscribers
Xfinity Mobile now has 577,000 subscribers and analysts expect Comcast to lose $1.2 billion on the venture after its first 18 months. A hybrid Wi-Fi first carrier, users connect to 18 million Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots for connectivity. Once out of range of these hotspots, customers are connected to Verizon's 4G LTE network.
Comcast customers with internet service can pay $45 a month for Xfinity Mobile and receive unlimited talk, text and data. Once 20GB of data are consumed in a month, speeds are reduced. Subscribers can also pay $12 a month for each GB of shared data that they want for one month. Any money used to pay for data not used, will be returned at the end of the month. And with the Xfinity Mobile app, users can switch from paying by the GB to unlimited service anytime they want.
Xfinity Mobile currently has a deal on new phones. Sign up for unlimited service between now and May 23rd and you'll get $200 back on the purchase of a new phone. If interested, click on this link.
