Cable giant Comcast offers cellular plans on Verizon network

Cable giant Comcast offers cellular plans on Verizon network”

- Comcast on April 6 launched a new cellphone service, Xfinity Mobile, making it the first major US cable provider to enter the highly competitive wireless market.

Xfinity Mobile isn't meant to be a direct competitor to market leaders like AT&T and Verizon, as the service will only be available as a bundle add-on for existing Xfinity subscribers.

Comcast has announced plans to launch a new wireless service in the United States called Xfinity Mobile. Comcast said it has simplified that process.

Bloomberg reports that Charter, which recently bought Time Warner Cable, plans to launch a wireless service in 2018.

Wie finishes sixth at ANA Inspiration; Ryu wins in playoff
When he played the 12th on Tuesday, in front of a large gallery but merely for practice, it was on his mind again. The 2014 ANA Inspiration victor made three birdies on her opening nine and added a birdie on the par-5 11th hole.

Use the Xfinity Mobile app to view your data use and call logs in real time, manage payment options, switch back-and-forth between data options, order a new device or add additional lines.

One of the more unique aspects of Xfinity Mobile is the ability to mix and match across lines. Comcast executives declined to reveal whether the company's agreement with Verizon prevents it from building its own cellular network.

Comcast's phones would automatically connect to wifi hotspots when they're available, harnessing the 16 million (including in-home ones) in its franchise territories. $65 per line on up to five lines with no usage limits, or $45 per line for our customers with our best X1 packages. And sure enough, the company has officially unveiled just that. It won't be offering voice-over Wi-Fi either.

Xfinity Mobile customers are getting more than an industry-acclaimed network to talk, text, and use data on.

Spanish League to probe match fixing
The 12-0 loss equalled a record for Spain's third division - Extremadura routed Portuense by the same score in 1993. Saad did say that Barcelona had nothing to do with the match-fixing and just did what they had to do.

In recent months, the four major USA wireless carriers - Verizon Communications Inc VZ.N , AT&T Inc T.N , T-Mobile US Inc TMUS.O and Sprint Corp S.N - have offered unlimited data plans ranging from $50 a month for a single line to $90 a month.

-By the Gig - $12 per Gigabyte of cellular data across all lines on an account each month. Customers with multiple lines can choose different options for different lines. There's also an "unlimited" data plan, throttled in some unspecified way after 20GB. Comcast says it will add that option sometime in the future. When the service launches later this year, subscribers will be limited to using the Apple iPhone 7, Apple iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT) RED edition, Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus and the Apple iPhone SE.

Watson noted that Comcast has a good history of expanding into new markets while not being the first mover. While many carriers today tout offers where they'll pay the early termination fees or your remaining bill with your old carrier, Comcast is making no such offer to potential customers. If a customer moves out of range of a Comcast hotspot, the user's Internet connection will drop until the mobile device re-establishes Verizon connectivity. It will initially be available only to subscribers with Xfinity broadband service.

Comcast is focused on selling to its 29 million customers so marketing, distribution, servicing and other expenses are lower.
