Charter's Mobile Service Details Leak

Dan Jones

Charter is reportedly gearing up to push out its mobile service, following in the footsteps of rival Comcast with its own Xfinity Mobile service.

Charter Communications Inc. 's Spectrum Mobile will offer WiFi over a customer's home hotspot, or switch to Verizon Wireless 's 4G network outside of their domocile. This is similar to the existing Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK) service works. (See Comcast Rings In Xfinity Mobile Nationwide.)

BGR reports that Charter expects to launch the service at the end of June. Unlimited data usage would be priced at $45 a month, or the company will offer a pay-per-gigabit option at $12 a gigabit.

This would put Charter's unlimited data pricing under other unlimited offerings from mobile service providers.

Re: Visible Mobile
It does appear consumer choices are becoming all to numerous, although the consumer probably still can't "win" in the long run, as the providers have the data that allows them to charge and offer choices that will always result in the best profit mix for them while the consumer tries to find affordable services, not alway understanding the fine print in the offers.

Re: Visible Mobile
Well I guess Spectrum's point is that they can sell existing subs a bundle. (albeit one that makes Verizon money too.)

Visible Mobile
At this price, you’d be better off setting up a plan with the company called a “Visible”. They are $40/month, taxes included. To compare, XfinityMobile runs about $53 after taxes and fees, plus it requires a bundled service. VisibileMobile was started by former execs from Verizon and T-Mobile so you know they'll have an excellent rate and beat the competitors pricing. Do a google search on them, you may be surprised what you can save.

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.
