Comcast Releases its Latest Prepaid Now Internet and Now Mobile Services

When it comes to selecting a phone carrier, there are countless options available. Of course, you have the major three carriers to choose from: Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. However, there are a lot more carriers out there, each with their own set of advantages and disadvantages, so it can be challenging to find a provider that meets all of your needs.

In a similar vein, there are several internet service providers available, but Comcast’s Xfinity brand is typically more well-known than others. Comcast has launched Now Mobile and Now Internet, two new prepaid phone and internet subscriptions.

Comcast has launched Now Mobile and Now Internet, which offers all-inclusive pricing, dependable internet and phone service, and no credit checks or commitments for its users. Since Comcast offers “pay as you go” options for internet and mobile services, customers can quickly stop or terminate service.

Leading phone carriers don’t usually promote prepaid phone plans, but they can end up saving you money in the long run and being more economical than postpaid options. Comcast had previously introduced the “Now” brand with its free Now TV and Now WiFi Pass subscriptions, but this is undoubtedly a far larger step. Bundles of Now Mobile and Now Internet start at $55 per month, while Now Internet only costs $30 per month.

MVNOs Can Offer Excellent Value

Although many people in the US are familiar with Comcast and Xfinity, fewer may be aware of Xfinity Mobile. An MVNO, or mobile virtual network operator, is Xfinity Mobile. MVNOs can save you a ton of money for unlimited data because they operate on the networks of larger carriers. Operating on the Verizon network, Xfinity Mobile has a solid track record for those who intend to use multiple lines on their mobile plan or currently have Xfinity as their internet provider. All that the new Now Mobile will do is function as Xfinity Mobile’s prepaid counterpart.

Contrary to popular belief, MVNO brands are rather widespread. Apart from Xfinity Mobile, there are numerous other providers that utilize Verizon’s towers, including Spectrum Mobile. While Metro by T-Mobile and Mint Mobile use — you guessed it — T-Mobile’s towers, Cricket Wireless uses AT&T towers. For better coverage, several providers—like Consumer Cellular, Straight Talk, and Boost Mobile—use the tower networks of several major phone companies.

Although using an MVNO can result in less expensive phone plans, since Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile prioritize their customers first, they have historically been the first to experience throttles and data deprioritization by the larger carriers. Customers of Mint Mobile, however, may no longer be able to do so after the MVNO was formally purchased by T-Mobile on May 1 from actor Ryan Reynolds.
