It’s been not more than six months when Comcast’s Xfinity mobile made its debut coupled with flexible options and value-added services for its existing customers.
Keeping all progress of Xfinity mobile under wraps, the Philadelphia-based media giant only revealed about their customer’s positive response, and its 12 USD-by-the-gig option.
According to Bloomberg, nearly 200,000 customers have already signed in to the company’s Xfinity Mobile service, and subscribers joined Comcast in less than a period of 5 months, despite one-month delay between the declaration of service’s details and its availability.
Moreover, Xfinity mobile runs off 18 million hotspots of Comcast and Verizon’s network. Thanks to an agreement between the two, that enables Comcast to buy data wholesale. As per the company’s executives, the main objective is not to become an extensive wireless company, but to save cell phone bills of existing subscribers and boost average revenue per customer.
Although the launch gave rise to the speculations of Comcast looking forward to establish its own wireless network in the market, Comcast’s CEO, Brian Roberts has been continuously rejecting such rumors.
