It's offered in all of Comcast's service areas through the company's newly redesigned retail stores and online.

Comcast this week announced that the company's Xfinity Mobile wireless phone service is now available nationwide.

"We created a unique mobile experience that's simple and saves customers money by connecting to our nationwide Wi-Fi network, and allows them to only pay for the data they use", Xfinity Mobile President Greg Butz said in a statement. In addition to using Wi-Fi at home, almost 70 percent connect to the company's Wi-Fi network when they are on the go.

According to a news release, Xfinity Mobile runs on America's largest, most reliable 4G LTE network - which is Verizon - and uses Comcast's 16 million Wi-Fi hotspots for a better wireless experience.

Xfinity Mobile offers unlimited talk and text as well as two different data options.

Customers must have residential Xfinity internet service to take advantage of the mobile deal. It's designed so that you'll end up paying for unlimited data for you entire family - even your grandparents who still have an AOL email - since it's cheaper than doing it line by line.

Comcast says Xfinity Mobile costs $45 a month a line with no unlimited data usage, though speeds are slowed after 20 gigabytes. Almost 25 percent of Xfinity Mobile accounts have at least one line using "By the Gig", and one line with the "Unlimited" option - another feature no other wireless carrier offers. "Now that we're available across all of our distribution platforms, including our retail locations in all of our markets, we look forward to introducing even more customers to Xfinity Mobile". It's not clear if you can bring a compatible device to the service or if you have to buy one from Xfinity mobile.

We have to mention that there are many other cell phone plans in the same price range with more phone options, including Sprint's $50 a month deal on the first line of unlimited service.
