Comcast continues rolling out “High-Speed 2go,” introducing the mobile broadband service in its hometown of Philadelphia, the MSO announced yesterday. “As Comcast’s hometown, Philadelphia is one of the most technologically progressive cities on the East Coast. Having the first and only 4G service bundled with some of the nation’s fastest Internet speeds is evidence to that fact,” said Eric Schaefer, senior vice president of Sales & Marketing for Comcast’s Freedom region, said in the news release.
Touting “High-Speed 2go” as “the fastest available wireless Internet in the nation,” Comcast’s mobile broadband offering is made up of two different data cards and service plans bundled with one or more of its Internet, phone or television services:
- Comcast High-Speed 2go Metro data card and service provides 4G metro coverage area;
- Comcast High-Speed 2go Nationwide delivers metro Philly 4G service and coast-to-coast roaming access on Sprint’s national 3G network.
Offering subscribers mobile broadband as part of pre-packaged “Fast Bundles,” Comcast’s $49.99 “Fast Pack Metro” bundle includes 12 Mbps home Internet service, a free WiFi router, and 4G mobile service with 4 Mbps download speed — a pretty compelling offer. Customers willing to spring for another $20 per month can get the “Fast Pack Nationwide” service with nationwide mobile broadband.
