Comcast Launches 4G Mobile Internet Service in Washington, D.C.



Comcast has launched its high-speed mobile Internet service in 10 East Coast markets, including DC, Baltimore and Richmond.

The company initially launched the service, known as High-Speed 2go, last year in its home base of Philadelphia. It comes to the DC-area nearly two years after the company initially invested in WiMax developer Clearwire.

Comcast is currently selling two different data cards and service plans — nationwide 3G service powered by Sprint, and a faster but more localized 4G service powered by Clearwire. The 4G device is designed to automatically switch to the 3G network when away from the faster connection. The company is bundling the wireless service with one or more of its other Internet, phone and television products. Pricing plans and service packages are available here.

  1. I’m wondering what the ROI is on that $1.05B investment?? I haven’t seen the pricing plans but would expect them to mirror the Clear offering. How many subs will ditch their wired, blazing fast BB home service for the cheaper, slower, mobile enabled service? Time will tell.
