If you’re an Xfinity internet customer who is looking for a cell phone plan, Xfinity Mobile could be an option for you. In fact, the ability to bundle your internet and cell phone plan could potentially save you money.
We take a look at Xfinity Mobile plan and break down the plan options and pricing. The Xfinity Mobile data plans are Unlimited or By the Gig. Before purchasing any cell phone plan, it’s important to understand all the details.
Xfinity Mobile Unlimited data plan
The Xfinity Mobile unlimited data plan is offered at a flat monthly cost of $45/line per month.
Customers will get 4G LTE data and 5G access where it’s available, plus personal hotspots.
To determine if the Xfinity Mobile Unlimited data plan is worth it for you, review your data usage history. Many people will find they don’t use quite as much data as they think they do. If you find you typically only use 2 GB a month, you could save $15 a month by going with the By the Gig data plan option.
Xfinity Mobile By the Gig data plan
If you don’t need unlimited data, Xfinity Mobile offers their By the Gig data plan.
1 GB for $15/month
3 GB for $30/month
10 GB for $60/month
It’s important to note that all lines on the plan will share this data. Also, there is no rollover data and your monthly cost is not prorated if you don’t use all your data.
If you exceed your data plan, you’ll be charged an additional $15/GB or you can update your plan choice.
Other cost considerations for Xfinity Mobile
You’re able to add up to 10 lines on Xfinity Mobile, whether that’s a phone, smartwatch or tablet. Each additional line is $10 per month. The Xfinity Mobile website does note that you may be limited to fewer lines based on your credit.
There are no activation fees, and you receive a free SIM card if you bring your own phone.
Though Xfinity Mobile is only open to Xfinity internet customers, you can maintain your mobile Unlimited or By the Gig plan if you decide to end your internet service. However, you won’t be able to add new lines to your Xfinity Mobile account and you will be charged an extra $20/line per month.
What network does Xfinity Mobile run on?
Xfinity Mobile is a mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO. As an MVNO, Xfinity Mobile doesn’t own its own wireless network. Instead, Xfinity Mobile buys access to use a wireless network owned and operated by one of the major carriers like T-Mobile or AT&T.
Xfinity Mobile runs on the Verizon network. So if you know Verizon offers good coverage in your area, the Xfinity Mobile might be a smart solution for you to lower your cell phone plan bill.
Xfinity Mobile Wi-Fi hotspots
Another way Xfinity Mobile sets itself apart from the competition is that you’re able to tap into over 19 million Wi-Fi hotspots. The benefit here is that you can keep your mobile data usage to a minimum by connecting to a hotspot to get online while on the go.
Does Xfinity Mobile have contracts?
You do not have to sign a term contract to get Xfinity Mobile wireless service. If you’re not happy with your plan or the service, you can leave at any time without penalty or early termination fee.
You can also switch your plan from By the Gig to Unlimited or vice versa. And if you have multiple lines on your plan, you can select whether each line is Unlimited or By the Gig.
