I plan to cancel comcast.... I need an alternative for Xfinity Mobile.

Zfinity mobile worked great for me, unlimited and free talk and text, and we get by with 6-8 GB data per month, for 4 cell phones.

if I cancel comvcast cable and internet, they will add a $10/line, which is still OK. but that means my monthly fee would jump by $40, it should still stay below $100 for 4 cell phones.

Still, any alternatives?

I could ask my friend to take our cll phones on his account. the bill is separate, so that may work, but right now it's not a good time to visit friends and ask them to go to an Xfinity store to move the phones lines to their account.

What I need: a prepaid provider, preferably on Verizon, which does allow WiFi calls. ATT Prepaid does not (unless they changed it recently).

I missed why you are cancelling?

$100 for 4 phones is amazing, IMHO.

does Visible have wifi calling?

Party Pay would bring you to $100 with unlimited everything and hotspotting. Verizon underneath it all.

I think space-time has a Fiber internet option that he's going to switch to.

space-time, here's my recent thread on this exact same topic. I'm staying with Comcast for now (because of Xfinity mobile), but if there's a similar phone option, I'll switch ASAP.

The new FiOS provider is not Verizon?

Just thinking out loud...
Verizon offers a FiOS + Verizon Wireless bundle. [www.verizon.com]

lowest option I see is $35 per line, so it comes to $140. I might as well keep Comcast as backup ISP at the new place.

I had two lines with xfinity mobile for several years. When I moved and stopped using comcast the plan changed to around $60/mo .
Red Pocket (verizon) had a sale last winter $190 for unlimited talk and text + 5gb data.
The other line was $100/year for 500 min 500 texts and 1gb data

$190 for what period? I guess one year?

and is that 5 GB of data per month or the total for the year?
