Cheapest Xfinity Internet Plans
I found that the following packages are the cheapest way to get Xfinity Internet. The prices and packages vary from region to region, so I’ve split them up by location.
|Plan||Region||Download Speed||Upload Speed||Price|
|Performance Pro||Northeast||400 Mbps||20 Mbps||$29.99|
|Connect||West||75 Mbps||5 Mbps||$24.99|
|Connect||Central||75 Mbps||5 Mbps||$30|
Cheapest in the Northeast – 400 Mbps for $29.99 per month
The most affordable Xfinity Internet plan in terms of price per month in the Northeast region is 400 Mbps over a one year agreement.
This will be a one year agreement, and the price includes a $10 discount for paperless billing and Auto Pay . It does not include, however, taxes and other fees. You can find out about any hidden fees you may have to pay here.
Your price will be locked in for 24 months, but at this point, it will be raised. You can find out more about the price rises in our article here.
Is the cheapest speed of 400 Mbps going to be fast enough for you? Almost definitely. 400 Mbps would be fast enough for an office of 10-12 people using the internet fairly heavily, so it should be more than enough for most housing arrangements.
Cheapest in the West – 75 Mbps for $24.99
In the Western region (e.g. California and Oregon), you can get Xfinity Internet for as little as $24.99.
It is quite a bit slower at 75 Mbps. However, this should still be enough speed for a couple of people living together or a small family at a push. Otherwise, you’ll need to almost double your monthly bill to $55 for 400 Mbps of internet.
One great thing about this contract is that there is no minimum term. You can sign up for just one month to see if it’s right for you, then change to another plan or cancel altogether if it’s not working out for whatever reasons.
Again, the price for this plan will be locked in for 24 months. That means you’ll be guaranteed to not pay any more than the original price for a 2 year period. After this, the price may (and probably will) rise.
Cheapest in Central – 75 Mbps for $30
If you’re based in the likes of Wisconsin or Illinois, you won’t get as good value as the other two locations. The cheapest price in this territory is $30 per month, and for that you’ll get 75 Mbps.
Again, you’ll get your price locked in for 24 months here but you’ll also have to sign up for a minimum contract length of one year. There’s no way to sign up for just one month in this region.
So, if you’re not sure if 75 Mbps is going to be fast enough for you, it’s probably not going to be worth the risk. You won’t want to be stuck with that speed for 12 months if it’s not going to allow you to do what you want to do without interruption.
Cheapest in terms of price per Mbps – 6 Gbps for $299.95
No matter which of these locations you live in, the cheapest in terms of price per Mbps is Gigabit Pro. Ironically, it’s actually the most expensive overall! But it is immensely fast.
For $299.95 per month, you’ll get an incredible 6 Gbps of internet. That’s about as fast as it gets in the US. Hardly anyone is going to need that kind of speed though. It would be enough for 30 or so people using the internet heavily.
Furthermore, the availability for this speed is very limited right now as Xfinity is still in the relatively early stages of rolling out the infrastructure for this immense level of Fiber internet right now.
Affordable Connectivity Program
The actual cheapest Xfinity Internet plan comes through the Affordable Connectivity Program. Except this is only available to those who live in limited income households.
The exact criteria is that your household will have to be earning less than 200% of the federal poverty guidance line . You can also qualify for this scheme if you are on a particular federal program, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Free school lunch
With this program, Xfinity will give you a discount of up to $30 per month on your internet plan. In fact, it is possible to get free internet if you sign up for an eligible plan that’s $30 per month or less. You may still have to pay some hidden fees though.
You can find out more about Xfinity’s internet services for low income households here.
More Ways to Save Money with Xfinity Internet
Who doesn’t want to save even more cash on their internet bill? If you’re planning on signing up with Xfinity, we’ve got you covered. Here are some top tips, and you can find out more of them here.
- Autopay and Paperless Billing: Not all Xfinity plans offer this, but some allow you to save $10 per month on your plan if you choose to set up a direct debit and receive your bills via email instead of in the post.
- Check for discounts for certain demographics: Xfinity often offers deals for the likes of teachers or military veterans, so keep an eye out to see if there are any of these available when you’re trying to get Xfinity Internet for yourself.
- Buy your own router: A lot of the Xfinity Internet plans demand quite a high price to rent the Xfinity Gateway router. But you can get around that by buying your own. Check out the best budget routers for 2022 here.
The Entry Level Xfinity TV Package
Xfinity’s TV packages are pretty awesome. They offer some of the best value for money per channel when compared to the competition.
Again, the price changes based on where you’re looking to sign up from, so here’s a look at the three territories where the differences lie.
|Plan||Location||Price (not including Broadcast TV fee)||Channels|
|Choice TV||Central and West||$20||10+|
|Choice Limited TV||Northeast||$30||10+|
Cheapest in Central and the West – Choice TV for $39.75 per month
For that, you’ll get 10 or more channels such as CNN and BBC World News. It’s a very basic but affordable TV package, and there doesn’t appear to be any minimum term for the contract so you should be able to cancel whenever.
This price includes a $10 discount for Autopay and Paperless Billing. If you don’t want both of these, you’ll need to pay that additional $10 per month.
Cheapest in the Northeast – Choice Limited TV for up to $54.95 per month
In North Eastern states, Choice TV is rebranded to Choice Limited TV. It costs a little more at a price of $30 per month plus an additional up to $24.95 per month for the Broadcast TV fee.
Again, you’ll get 10 channels but they’re slightly different with FOX and NBC on offer. The good news is that there is no minimum term for this package again.
Reduce Your Xfinity TV Bill Further
Unfortunately, there are some fees that make even the cheapest Xfinity TV plans pretty expensive (namely the Broadcast TV fee). So, to help you combat that, we’ve put together some tips on how to save some money with your Xfinity TV bill:
- Get Auto Pay and Paperless Billing: Combining these two options will save you $10 per month. The prices listed above already include this addition.
- Try to negotiate a better deal: It might be possible to get a better price by speaking to a sales representative and haggling with them. We can’t guarantee this will work, but it could well be worth a try!
The Cheapest Xfinity Mobile Plans
Unlike the internet and TV plans, Xfinity Mobile prices are the same no matter where you sign up for them.
Unlike some other mobile providers, you don’t save a lot of money by taking up four or more lines at the same time with Xfinity. That makes this a great value provider for single or double users.
With all Xfinity Mobile plans, you’ll get free access to Xfinity public hotspots all around the country. This means you can save your data in certain cities.
However, you’ll have to be Xfinity customer to sign up for th
Here are a couple of the cheapest plans.
|By the Gig||$15||1 Gig||Low data users, single line users|
|Unlimited||$30 for two lines||Unlimited||Higher data users|
Cheapest for low data – By the Gig from $15 per month
The cheapest plan for low data users is ‘By the Gig’ which starts at just $15 per month if you have an Xfinity service already, such as TV, internet or home phone.
If you cancel your internet plan while you’re an Xfinity Mobile customer and you do not have any other services with them, you’ll need to pay an additional fee of $25 per month.
The $15 fee here applies to one 1 Gig of data. You’ll pay an additional $15 per month for every other Gig you use. So, if you use more than 2 Gig of data in a month, you may actually end up paying more than you would if you had the Unlimited plan.
So, this plan is best for those who are going to use 2 Gig of data or less in a month. This is enough data for a couple of hours of Netflix streaming in standard definition, for example. So, not a lot.
It’s also possible to share your data between lines with this plan, so you could save even more money if you want to take up a plan with another user who also uses very little data.
Cheapest for unlimited data – Unlimited from $30 per month
These days, most people will probably be better off with the Unlimited plan. For $30 per month per line when you take up two lines, you won’t have to worry about how much data you use. And we’re all increasingly using more and more of it as time goes by.
If you choose to take up just one line, the cost will be $45 per month. However, if you take up three, four or more lines, you won’t save any additional money. The additional cost will continue to be $30 per month for each additional line.
While the plan does technically offer unlimited data, your speeds will be throttled should you end up using over 20 GB in a month.
Affordable Connectivity Program
Like with selected Xfinity Internet plans, you can save money on your bill with Xfinity Mobile if you are in a low income household.
Saving Extra Money With Your Xfinity Mobile Bill
There are a few more ways that you can save money on your bill with Xfinity Mobile. Here are some of our top tips for that:
- Keep your existing Xfinity service: A fee of $25 per month applies to those who cancel Xfinity Internet while they are on an Xfinity Mobile plan but do not have another service like TV.
- Keep an eye out for deals: Xfinity offers various deals for its mobile users from time to time. They’re particularly strong if you choose to take up a plan with a handset, so make sure you refer to the Xfinity Mobile website to see what’s available at any given time.
- Refer a friend: If you bring a friend over to Xfinity Mobile, you’ll get $25.
Cheap Xfinity Plans FAQ
Take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions surrounding cheap Xfinity plans.
