Comcast launched their High-Speed 2 Go service in Boston this week. The service normally works over WiMax networks operated by Clearwire and Sprint but in Boston they are only offering 3G EVDO coverage on Sprint's network. The WiMax 4G service is expected to be available at a later date
According to DSLReports the pricing for the service has changed too:
• Comcast High-Speed 2go Metro service costs $54.99 for twelve months and comes with 12Mbps Comcast home broadband service and a Wi-Fi router. The service uses a Mobile WiMax data card that will obviously only work in areas where there's Comcast/Clearwire Mobile WiMax.
• Comcast High-Speed 2go Nationwide service costs $69.99 initially($92.95 thereafter) and also comes with Comcast 12Mbps home broadband service and a home Wi-Fi router. The service uses a dual-mode data card that allows users to float between Clearwire's Mobile WiMax network and Sprint's 3G EVDO network.
The service is sold under the new Xfinity brand created to help Comcast compete with AT&T U-Verse and Verizon FiOS.
