Comcast today launched a new mobile service, Comcast Business Mobile designed for small business customers.
Comcast is targeting small businesses with a variety of services, including nationwide 5G coverage, flexible data coverage and the experience the company has gained in developing and operating its Xfinity Mobile business.
The company hopes to have at least as much success with the service as it has with the consumer focused Xfinity Mobile, which recently surpassed 3 million customers and achieved break even status.
Like Xfinity mobile, Comcast requires business mobile customers to also be internet customers, business internet customers in this case.
The service offers two pricing options:
- Unlimited data for as low as $24 per month for up to 10 lines
- Usage-based pricing: 1Gs for $15 a month, 3G for $30 a month and 10G for $60 a month. The 10G plan includes data sharing.
Comcast Business Mobile enables users to buy devices straight from the company or to use their own compatible devices without needing to sign a long-term contract for service.
“Staying connected – whether in the office or on-the-go – is critical for small businesses. Comcast Business Mobile provides small business owners and their employees access to the most reliable network with nationwide 5G included at no extra cost as well as access to more than 20 million secure Xfinity WiFi hotspots,” said Bill Stemper, president, Comcast Business, in a prepared statement. “We have created a unique mobile experience that brings more value to our Internet customers, saving them money while providing tremendous performance, reliability and flexibility.”
Comcast’s mobile service relies on the operators vast Wi-Fi network for mobile coverage, but also enables customers to roam on Verizon’s network, including Verizon 5G, whenever Wi-Fi is not available.
