Comcast launches 4G wireless service at $70
Cable provider Comcast is ready to launch its High-Speed 2Go 4G/3G wireless data service. On the Comcast website, the carrier is advertising the 4G services are available at Bellingham, WA, Portland, OR and Atlanta, GA, with more markets coming soon. It also promises 3G coverage for most of the US.
While Comcast isn't quick to point out what network it is using to provide the service, the coverage map looks nearly identical to one used by Sprint. Comcast will offer a bundle that includes 15Mbps home Internet service and unlimited 3G/4G data access when mobile, at 3-6Mbps speeds. When a 3G or 4G network is not available, mobile users default to Sprint's EVDO network. The Comcast High-Speed 2Go service costs $70 per month. A 4G-only service in the above metropolitan areas costs $50 per month.
Comcast first introduced the service this summer. [via BGR]
