PHILADELPHIA -- Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) today introduced Xfinity Mobile, a new wireless service designed for the way people use their phones today, with the internet and data at the center of the experience. Up to eighty percent of smartphone data traffic in the U.S. travels over Wi-Fi,1 not cellular networks, making Wi-Fi a key solution to today’s mobile data consumption. Xfinity Mobile uses America’s largest, most reliable 4G LTE network along with Comcast’s 16 million Wi-Fi hotspots to provide consumers with a better wireless experience, for less money, on today’s most popular devices.

"We’re doing mobile differently by bringing our customers the best networks and a product designed to save them money in an increasingly data-driven world," said Greg Butz, president of Comcast Mobile. "Mobility is more important than ever to consumers, so we’ve designed Xfinity Mobile the way mobile should be – a simple solution for internet and entertainment in and out of the home."

Xfinity Mobile benefits customers by bundling wireless service with Comcast’s other Xfinity experiences. With Xfinity Mobile, customers only pay for the gigabytes they use, with the flexibility to easily switch back-and-forth between data options using the Xfinity Mobile app at no cost.

Key benefits and features of Xfinity Mobile include:

No Line Access Fees

Get up to five lines automatically included when you add Xfinity Mobile to your Xfinity Internet service, with no line access fees, unlimited talk and text, and your first 100 MB of shared 4G LTE data included – all at no extra cost.

Save Money – Pay for Only the Gigabytes (GB) You Use

The end of the data bucket is near with two straightforward data options available that will save most Xfinity Internet customers money when they add Xfinity Mobile:

Unlimited – Consume all the cellular data you want for one set price for up to five lines.2 $65 per line on up to five lines with no usage limits, or $45 per line for our customers with our best X1 packages.

By the Gig – $12 per GB of cellular data across all lines on an account each month. Seventy percent of U.S. wireless customers use less than 5 GB of cellular data per month3, so families can share their data across devices and will only pay for what they use.

Flexibility – Families can mix-and-match on an account so that each person can choose the way to pay for data that makes sense for them.

No Penalties – Easily switch back-and-forth between data options at no cost. If customers find that they’ve used more data on a "By the Gig" option one month, they can switch to "Unlimited" for that month, then switch back the next month with no penalties.

 Tom Fallon INFN's last CC:

"On the topic of metro, I'm very pleased to report that in Q4 we received an initial metro order from a large North America cable operator. While the ramp for this customer should be gradual, over time I expect this to develop into a sizeable opportunity. This deal represents a major milestone in the evolution of our metro business, and I commend our team on the win."

"We're excited about the opportunity. It's been a journey. And we stayed at it, and I think we have proven to them that we are providing a differentiated value proposition. It's slow, but it's ramping. And like I said – like a sales guy said, the first order, it's not a customer. It's a customer when you have the second production order. So, we've had more than our second production order now."

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
