Comcast Partners with Charter Communications to Offer Wireless Cell Phone and Data Services
New England Council member Comcast recently announced it will partner with Charter Communications to begin offering cell phone and data services throughout the United States.
Comcast bought $1.7 billion in free wireless spectrum during an auction hosted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) last month. The wireless spectrum is expected to help boost service for the new Comcast and Charter partnership. Existing Comcast broadband customers may even be able to add on the new Xfinity Mobile wireless services as early as this month. Comcast and Charter have also committed to exploring partnerships in other wireless sector areas, such as potentially developing technical standards and common operating platforms.
“Both of our companies have regional wireless businesses using the same 4G LTE network, and by working together, our goal is to create even better experiences for our customers,” said Comcast Chairman and Chief Executive, Brian L. Roberts.
The New England Council thanks Comcast for continuing to expand services offered to the benefit of customers across the New England region. Read more in The Boston Globe and Reuters.
