According to Comcast VP of product management, Randall Hounsell, the dedicated team is currently focusing on the BYOD aspect of the business. Hounsell related to FierceWireless that they are positive some sort of BYOD setup will be launched by the MVNO before the year ends. The Comcast executive promises that when it's ready, the process will run smoothly so that it will bring a very clean and simple experience to users who wish to use this option.
Since BYOD and device trade-ins are two features many are requesting for, the MVNO is excited to offer this to its customers. But when asked when users can expect Xfinity Mobile to offer BYOD or device trade-in options, the executive declined to comment. He did, however, assert that these are options they are currently focusing on.
Apart from focusing on BYOD and device trade-ins, Hounsell shared that Comcast intends to keep its $45 unlimited wireless option to all its customers and not just to the ones who subscribe to its "best" X1 video offers. But while the $45 unlimited plan is available indefinitely, Hounsell shared that its best X1 customers will be getting a better price by next year.
It's interesting to see Comcast's plans for Xfinity Mobile take place. And since they are hopeful about their products and services, it could only mean they have a lot lined up for their customers. Hopefully, we'll learn more about these plans in the near future.
