A Comprehensive Review about Xfinity

You might be surprised to know that nearly 3,000 internet providers are operating in the United States. One of them that has gained a lot of popularity recently is Xfinity. It offers different types of services. However, its Internet service is the most popular one. Millions of people are utilizing this service for a decent Internet connection.

In this article, we are going to review this service completely. The data we will discuss will help you know if this service is any good for you or not. Let’s start.

What is Xfinity?

Xfinity is an entertainment and communication company owned by Comcast. It was launched more than a decade ago. Since then, it has provided quality Internet and cable services to its users. Most of these services are provided individually. However, the company might offer them in the form of a bundle as well.

Its Internet service is what has made the company more popular. What impressed us the most was its wide range of bundles. These bundles are carefully tailored according to the needs of different types of users. For example, a suitable package for a gamer will have a different nature than one for a student.

Xfinity markets itself in a very clever way. It uses the 10G word while doing it. Users are tricked into believing that it has a 10G speed (similar to 4G, 5G, etc.) However, that is untrue. In actuality, this term denotes the service’s ability to process 10GB of data per second.

 Also, this service isn’t as fast as 5G.

 Services of Xfinity:

The company offers the following major services:

Internet:

As discussed earlier, it is the main service. It includes different packages and offers very decent speed.

Cable television:

The company also provides cable television service. Although not very popular, it covers a large range of channels. They are related to almost everything including news, sports, and entertainment.

Home phone:

There are not many people that use home phones anymore. Still, the company is providing these services to the users who do. It comes with the features of call waiting and voicemail.

Xfinity Internet Review:

Xfinity Internet is one of the best services when it comes to being diverse in packages. You get to choose from the following bundle options:

Speed:

The details of the Internet speeds for different packages are already given above. However, you might be disappointed to know that you may not get the exact speed. We tried using the Fast and Connect More package during our testing. We experienced an average speeds of 220 Mbps (Connect More) and 360 Mbps (Fast).

This speed depends on different factors. So, it’s possible that some users may get the exact speed according to their package.

Contract:

This feature is what we loved the most about this service. There is no requirement for you to sign an annual contract. This implies that you are free to end your membership whenever you choose. On the other hand, there could be some cost savings available if you pay for one or two years in advance.

Just like any major Internet provider, Xfinity gives you two different options for installation. In the professional installation method, you will have to pay from $40 to $100. The kit is free for some regions. Others have to pay around $15 for it.

In case you exceed, you have to option of paying $10 for every extra 50Gb you use. This limit maxes out at $100. Besides this, there’s an option of paying $30 extra to get unlimited data each month.

This is one of the most popular bundles of Xfinity Internet. That is because it has an exclusive nature and comes with several perks. It costs only around $25/month. With this, you get:

  • High-speed Internet
  • Unlimited data after the 1.2 TB limit.
