Charter's Mobile Service Details Leak

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.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
