Just by glancing at the Pricing & Offer Information for the Unlimited Plan, we can see that the advertised price is actually only the introductory rate which will end after 24 months of service.
If you don’t have at least one Xfinity customer on your plan, you will be charged an extra $10 per line.
When using the Data Plan Calculator offered on their website, we can see that the pricing isn’t all that great. In the end, the results did not favor Xfinity Mobile, but it all depends if you’re currently an Xfinity customer, Data needs, etc.
Xfinity Mobile vs T-mobile, Sprint, AT&T, & Verizon
The calculated numbers are a result of the service price. It does not include any phone payment plans that are being financed.
Single Phone Unlimited Plan
This Single Line Plan seems to work out the best and offers a really competitive price. This might be worth it assuming you are already an Xfinity customer, this way you can avoid the extra $10 line charge. Just keep in mind about the fees as well as the introductory pricing once it expires.
2 Unlimited Plans
Although you see that you pay $10 less with Xfinity Mobile, keep in mind about those fees that are not applied in the calculator.
Family 4 Unlimted Plan
The Unlimited Plan for a family of 4 still doesn’t go well for Xfinity Mobile. T-Mobile, who is known to have all fees included in their pricing, is cheaper before Xfinity applies their rates & fees.
2 Phones with 4 Gb Data/mo
In this case, Xfinity is able to hold up against the top 4 competitors by providing a fair price. Remember to keep in mind about the monthly fees and rates that will be added to your bill every month.
In this case, it’s best to not disregard AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon in your choice of options.
