Xfinity Mobile introduces bring your own device (Byod)

KNOXVILLE – Comcast announced today that Xfinity Internet customers can bring their own device (BYOD) to Xfinity Mobile by visiting Xfinity Store locations across the country. Select, unlocked iPhone models can be activated on the Xfinity Mobile network, and devices that don’t qualify may be eligible to be traded in for a gift card equal to the value of the phone, which can be used to bring down the cost of upgrading to a new device.

“When we first introduced Xfinity Mobile, our goal was to simplify the experience for customers, from the sign-up process to activation, and support it with the best 4G LTE network,” said Doug Guthrie, Regional SVP at Comcast. “With the introduction of BYOD, iPhone users can now easily switch to Xfinity Mobile and get access to over 18 million Wi-Fi hotspots, without needing to purchase a new phone. Unlike most providers, Comcast does not charge for line fees, and customes will save by leveraging our Wi-Fi network for their data needs.”

Customers are encouraged to visit for additional details and to determine if their device is eligible to bring to Xfinity Mobile. Comcast expects to be able to activate devices from additional manufacturers on the Xfinity Mobile network in stores later in 2018.

Xfinity Mobile is available to all Xfinity Internet customers, and includes up to five lines of unlimited nationwide talk and text, no line access fees, and 100 MB of shared data. When a customer brings their device to Xfinity Mobile they can choose from two straightforward data options – “By the Gig” for $12 per GB of shared data across all lines on their account, or Unlimited for $45 per month per line. In addition, customers with Xfinity Mobile and Xfinity TV have a complete entertainment solution at home and on the go, including access to 200+ live TV channels, 40K On Demand movies and shows, and cloud DVR.
