I agree - for a single line it' a great deal. 

It’s a fantastic deal. But for a multi person plan I would not recommend Xfinity mobile.

Does using data while on xfinity wifi hotspots count against data?  Because that's free data usage if you're on another carrier but have xfinity for home broadband.

I also found out that there is no speed or data cap on the WiFi hotspot on the phone

I read that BYOD would start end of 2017 as well as Wi-Fi calling. I'm thinking I'm going to switch (to avoid being forced onto T-mobile) and try to bring my Sprint phone.

I get speeds in excess of 80 MB a second before I get throttled to 1.5 MB a second

I wonder if Comcast is going to offload data onto its WiFi network and then stand and pole mounted small cells to where they only use Verizon for roaming outside their own network. Charter will definitely follow that model.

They use Verizon wireless as the cell phone provider for the network side and they use their own hotspot on their cable modems for access when you’re stationary.

What about outside? Comcast has a pretty extensive outdoor WiFi network. When you go inside does it automatically switch the data connection to your cable/WiFi modem?

If you leave the Wi-Fi turned on your phone should automatically connect to a Xfinity hotspot. I just shut my Wi-Fi off when I leave and when I come back home i turn it back on And it automatically connects to an Xfinity hotspot. The phones should automatically do it. And data speeds are very respectable too. 0b54099eefd0a03d490af26a6239335c.png

I would think that it should automatically go on WiFi.

Actually have to keep the Wi-Fi turned on. But if you come within range of an Xfinity hotspot you should automatically connect to it.

    • So I finally picked up my V30+ on Wednesday night. Spent the next day and a half getting it set up to my liking. Radio-wise, this phone seems to be about on par with my G4 - possibly a few dB weaker. I don't have B41 at my house, so I haven't been able to do much on that front. I do have B41 at work, but when I'm there I have to do, you know, work stuff. But from at I can see there and at customer sites B41 seems strong, stable and fast. Overall this is great phone, and I'm really pleased with it so far. Despite the bigger screen, it's barely any larger overall than my G4. I've seen some comments that the phone has a plastic-y feel to it, but I haven't found that to be the case at all. Speaking of cases, I did slap a Spigen Neo Hybrid on it right away; it barely increases the size of the phone at all, while making for a secure grip with my sometimes sweaty hands. Functionally, it's quick and smooth as butter, as you'd expect with a brand-new phone. Battery life has been awesome. Yesterday I was working in a facility where signal was terrible, but I still had 70% battery when I left; my G4 would have been down to 30% or less. My experience has always been that battery life is not so great for the first week or so, either due to battery physics or because the phone is doing a lot of background work for updates, etc. (I've heard both theories - don't know if either is correct). So I won't be surprised if battery life gets even better in the next week or so. This is a lot of money for a phone, but I bought it with an eye to being future-proof for at least a few years. By then - who knows - we might be looking at 5G devices!
    • Could be a combination of the two. HPUE has improved coverage substantially from devices I’ve seen with it. Only way to know which is the bigger contributor overall would be to get your old iPhone and test it under the current network. iPhone 6s supports 2xCA. It’s also a generation (or more in my opinion) behind in terms of RF components and features as it lacks HPUE. The S8 supports 3xCA and HPUE. When the iPhone finally gets HPUE a year from now, Sprint’s network will be in even better shape... or heaven forbid it will be running on T-Mobile, which doesn’t do HPUE as far as I know. :-(
    • According to Günther’s Post, more enhancements could come as soon as November. Wonder what they have in store for us. Exciting times ahead for Sprint’s Coverage Map! I’m glad this important section of the Sprint website is finally getting some major attention.
    • my s8 sucks don't hold band 41, note 5 crush this s8 reception on band 41.
