Xfinity Mobile, the MVNO exclusively for Comcast Xfinity home internet customers, has changed its multi-line discounts to provide greater value, but with an unusual structure. The base rate for one line remains the same $45/month. However the new multi-line discount drops the rate to just $30/month/line for a family plan of two, three, or four lines. Previously, the rate dropped progressively with each additional line, a common scheme among US carriers. With this change, two- and three-line plans are now significantly cheaper, while four-lines plans remain the same. Also, additional lines (beyond four) are now just $20/month/line.

Xfinity Mobile fudges price comparison to T-Mobile

The chart Xfinity Mobile used in its press release has a glaring flaw:
T-Mobile charges $45/1 line for its Base Essentials plan, not $60. So Xfinity does NOT cost less for 1 line.
For 3 or 4 lines, the *regular* T-Mobile Essentials plan cost the same as Xfinity for 3 or 4 lines, $90* and $120. T-Mobile Essentials consistently has much better phone discounts than Xfinity short-term promotions.

Xfinity throttles data after 20 GB of monthly data use; speeds are reduced to a maximum of 1.5 Mbps download/750 kbps upload. During network congestion T-Mobile de-prioritizes Essentials data compared to its more expensive plans and again after 50GB/month.

*third line free promo has been running for more than 3 years.
Eh... the Base Essentials is not an "unlimited" plan, so that's not quite a fair comparison.
