Comcast is offering 5G on all its Xfinity Mobile plans. Xfinity Mobile is Comcast’s mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) service that rides on Verizon’s network. So essentially, Comcast is piggybacking off Verizon’s 5G network. Today, Comcast is launching new data plans with 5G services included free, regardless of how customers choose to pay for their data, whether it’s unlimited or by the gig.
Comcast’s wireless pricing has been somewhat disruptive. The company offers two types of plans: an unlimited plan and a by-the-gig usage plan. The plans can be mixed and matched within families. For example, a parent who mainly uses Wi-Fi can choose the by-the-gig plan, while his teenagers might each need the monthly unlimited plan. And customers can use the Xfinity Mobile app to switch their plans on-demand at any time. So it’s basically a form of dynamic pricing.
