Comcast's Now Internet is now available ... or so they say

Reports are out, and the Websites seem to agree, that Comcast's Now Internet service is available nationwide.

According to Cord Cutters News, Now Internet has rolled out nationwide.

Now Internet starts at $30 a month for 100 Mbps, which is enough for three 4K streams and the ability to surf the web. There is also a $40 a month option for 200 Mbps down, which is enough speed for six 4K streams and the ability to surf the web. There is also NOW Mobile with unlimited 5G, talk, and text for $25 a line.

"NOW is a simple, reliable, and low-cost way for people to get Internet and Mobile service on their own terms." said Bill Connors, President of Connectivity and Platforms, Comcast. "Our trials have shown that there is a need for a better prepaid product that provides a more consistent and reliable connection and we’re excited to bring fresh new options to this market."

The service seems clearly targeted at the growth of 5G home Internet services as its marketing even directly compares Comcast Now to 5G home Internet.

Well, here's the thing. I can't subscribe. Well, I can, but they're making it hard. I've looked at it, but am finding it practically impossible.

Also, please note NOW Internet is not available for customers who:

  • Subscribe to other Xfinity services (except Xfinity Mobile).
    • If you want to downgrade from Xfinity Internet to NOW Internet, you’ll need to remove all other Xfinity services (except Xfinity Mobile).
  • Have Bulk Video, Bulk Internet, Managed WiFi or WiFi Ready service.
  • Are located at fiber properties.

If you’re eligible, you can sign up for NOW Internet with no credit check, no annual contract and taxes and fees included in the cost of service. You’ll pre-pay for services and your subscription will auto-renew at the end of your prepaid service period. You can cancel at any time by visiting

Honestly, I'm not wanting to cancel Xfinity Internet just to try to subscribe to Now Internet. I don't have any Xfinity equipment, so I could walk into my designated Comcast center and cancel Xfinity Internet and subscribe to Now Internet. If I try to do it online, I'll be without Internet for a period of time, between my Xfinity service ending and my receiving my Now Internet equipment.

My Streaming Life works great with Xfinity Internet. I'm not planning on messing with that just to save a few bucks. On the other hand, I may decide that I want to save the money bad enough to actually go through the steps. After all, I'll be paying Comcast less money if I do that. And that sounds like something I might do after all.
