Comcast continues its rollout of wireless data service, announcing today the Colorado launch of Xfinity Internet 2go, the company’s high-speed wireless data service.
Xfinity Internet 2go provides a mobile Internet solution via wireless data cards. Comcast offers a fourth-generation or 4G wireless service in addition to a nationwide 3G wireless service. Comcast is selling this wireless service independently or as an add-on with one or more of its Internet, TV or voice products.
Colorado customers now have access to three different wireless data cards and service plans from Comcast:
- Xfinity Internet 2go Metro (4G) service uses a 4G-only data card. The 4G device operates only in a 4G network footprint.
- Xfinity Internet 2go Nationwide (3G) service uses a 3G-only data card. The 3G-only device operates on Sprint’s national 3G network.
- Xfinity Internet 2go Nationwide Preferred (4G/3G) service delivers metro 4G service plus coast-to-coast access on Sprint’s national 3G network. The 4G/3G device operates by switching between available 4G and 3G networks.
Comcast is selling wireless data services following its investment in Clearwire in November 2008. Comcast’s 4G service will be provided via the Clearwire WiMAX network, and its 3G service will be provided by Sprint’s nationwide 3G network.
