Xfinity Mobile intros 5G data options

June 8, 2020
Xfinity Mobile's new cellular data options for 'Unlimited' or 'By the Gig' offer customers the faster speeds, lower latency and improved capacity that 5G has to offer.

On June 4, Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) announced that Xfinity Mobile is launching new data plans with 5G services included free, regardless of how customers choose to pay for data, whether its "Unlimited" or "By the Gig."

Xfinity Mobile now offers 5G speeds across all new data plans at no additional charge. Further, Comcast is offering consumers the flexibility to modify their data plans throughout the month between 1GB, 3GB, 10GB or Unlimited, all now with 5G capabilities. The 5G service is available in 34 major cities across the U.S., including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Memphis, Miami, Minneapolis, Spokane, St. Paul, and Washington, D.C. with access to 5G to expand nationwide in the future.

New and current customers can choose from two 5G data options – “By the Gig” shared data starting at 1 GB for $15, 3 GB for $30 and 10 GB for $60; or Unlimited for $45 per month per line. Cellular data speeds for Xfinity Mobile customers are reduced after 20 GB of cellular data consumed. Wi-Fi usage does not count towards the 20 GB data threshold.

The Xfinity Mobile service is available to Xfinity Internet customers and includes up to five lines of unlimited nationwide talk and text, with no activation fees, and no phone line access fees, according to the carrier. The carrier gives customers the option to mix-and-match data options per user on an account, and switch any line on an account between data options, at any time during their billing cycle.

 “From day one, Xfinity Mobile has been proud to be the only provider to empower customers to design a mobile plan that fit their needs, as well as have the flexibility to seamlessly switch between unlimited or per gig to save money. We’re excited to now extend that benefit with 5G data plans,” commented Rui Costa, Senior Vice President, Innovation & Customer Value Propositions, Comcast Cable.

Existing Xfinity Mobile customers can opt-in to a 5G cellular data option through the Xfinity Mobile app. 5G phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra are already available for purchase on, and additional devices will continue to be added in the future.
