Charter's wireless service goes live, joining Comcast

Charter Communications' new wireless service, Spectrum Mobile, has gone live.

As expected after the company formed an alliance with fellow top cableco Comcast, the service relies on the same MVNO agreement that powers Comcast's Xfinity Mobile and offers similar flexible pricing.

Customers can pay for data by usage, or a flat $45 per month per line for unlimited data. On the per-usage option, Charter's plan charges $14/GB/month while Comcast's is $12/GB/month.

 

 

Charter Communications launched its much-awaited Spectrum Mobile wireless services on June 30, offering customers flexible data pricing plans similar to Comcast’s Xfinity Mobile.

 

That makes sense given the Charter service stems from the same Verizon Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) agreement that is the basis for Comcast’s Xfinity Mobile service, which was launched last year.

The 4G LTE Spectrum Mobile service is connected to the cable operator’s WiFi hotspots across the country, according to Charter.

Like XFinity Mobile, customers can switch data plans during the month, so they only pay for the data they need. Charter claims Spectrum Mobile customers can save as much as 40% over competing wireless services
