Comcast to roll out Xfinity prepaid services
July 22, 2016
Comcast has announced plans to roll out Xfinity Prepaid Services in the US, a pay-as-you-go offering that lets people sign-up for TV or Internet service and ‘refill’ their subscription any time they would like, for either seven or 30 days. The TV and Internet services, which come without a credit check or contract, will be available later this year starting in Illinois, Michigan, Georgia, Florida and Indiana and offered everywhere within the Comcast footprint by the end of 2017.
Additionally, Comcast has signed a deal with Boost Mobile, a leader in the no-contract wireless industry, to offer Xfinity Prepaid at select Boost Mobile locations later this year and all 4,400 Boost Mobile locations within Comcast’s service area by the end of next year.
“We want to create an easy, pay-as-you-go option for people who want more flexibility and predictability when buying our services,” said Marcien Jenckes, Executive Vice President, Consumer Services, Comcast Cable. “And our partnership with Boost Mobile will give Xfinity Prepaid customers even more places where they can conveniently sign-up and pay-as-they-go.”
