Comcast's wireless phone service coming later this year

Comcast will add later this year wireless phone services to its existing cable TV/Internet offers. What started as a rumor was confirmed by the company's CEO in September 2016 and now, as part of the quarterly financial results, new information about the upcoming services surfaces via official channels.

While the launch window remains as accurate as "the middle of the year" for now, Comcast's executives revealed that the service would be introduced gradually, thus allowing the company to "learn and adapt along the way." On the other hand, Comcast plans to operate like the existing wireless carriers, its approach being "to purchase the phones and collect payments."

In addition to the above, it comes naturally for Comcast to offer wireless services bundled with the existing TV/Internet offers. The company is happy with its Verizon Wireless partnership and has confirmed that 5G capabilities would soon be tested. The new service is expected to debut using a combination of Comcast WiFi hotspots and Verizon LTE, and this is it for now. More details might surface in the coming months, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
