Everywhere by 2017; New Partnership With Boost Mobile Will Provide New
Retail Point-of-Purchase Option

Prepaid Services
, a pay-as-you-go offering that lets people sign-up
for TV or Internet service and “refill” their subscription any time they
would like, for either seven or 30 days. The TV and Internet services,
which come without a credit check or contract, will be available later
this year starting in Illinois, Michigan, Georgia, Florida and Indiana
and offered everywhere within the Comcast footprint by the end of 2017.

Additionally, Comcast has signed a deal with Boost Mobile, a leader in
the no-contract wireless industry, to offer Xfinity Prepaid at select
Boost Mobile locations later this year and all 4,400 Boost Mobile
locations within Comcast’s service area by the end of next year.

service at any time, for either seven or 30 days. There are no
limitations on the number of times the service can be renewed and

discount for people who sign-up for both TV and Internet service at the
same time. All pricing and package options can be found at
