Comcast Corp. (CMCSA) Shares Rise Amid Entrance to Mobile Internet Sphere

Comcast Corp. (NASDAQ:CMCSA) rose 2.17% to $38.15 during midday trading on April 6, after its move to enter the mobile internet domain with Xfinity Mobile – boasting a very low price, especially for existing premier subscribers of the traditional cable bundle.

The latest addition to its services recognizes the shift of consumers from traditional TV to mobile. To alleviate the thinning of cable popularity, it required subscription to a cable bundle to avail of Xfinity Mobile but it does place nice perks to the deal.

Comcast Corp. (NASDAQ:CMCSA) will charge no additional fees to let you add up to five lines if you add the Xfinity Mobile deal into your Xfinity Internet service, it provides unlimited call and text, plus users can easily switch between the unlimited plan ($45-$65) and pay “by the gig” plan ($12 per gigabyte).

“Xfinity Mobile uses America’s largest, most reliable 4G LTE network along with Comcast’s 16 million Wi-Fi hotspots to provide consumers with a better wireless experience, for less money, on today’s most popular devices,” the cable giant said in a press release.
