How Good is Comcast Xfinity Internet?

Overall, Xfinity internet is a good option for most consumers. It offers a great variety of internet speeds, wide availability, and competitive prices (especially if you bundle).

That said, if you’re uncertain about the future and don’t want to use their contracts, plans they do become a lot more expensive. 

This is also the case for their 1.2 Terabit data cap. If you are a heavy internet user that will surpass it, you will have to pay $10 per 50 GB or $30 extra per month to remove the data cap.

Best Xfinity Plans for Your Home

Here are the best Xfinity internet speeds for different circumstances. 

#1 Best Overall – 300 Mbps – Fast/Performance Pro

Xfinity’s Fast/Performance Pro internet plan (the name is different depending on your location) is ideal for a family of between 3-6 people. 

300 Mbps will be enough for everyone in the family to play video games, stream 4K movies and be in video calls simultaneously. 

Just note that the upload speed of this plan is only 10 Mbps. This means that you can only have a couple of video calls on at the same time.

Also, make sure you get a router that can handle it. 




#2 Best for Single Household – 50 Mbps – Connect/Performance Starter

For people who live alone, the Connect/Performance Starter internet plan of 50 Mbps will be enough. This will be able to provide you with a high-quality stream, casual browsing, and other background processes simultaneously. 

That said, since it’s only 5 Mbps in upload speed, you will not be able to have more than 1-2 video calls on at the same time. 




#3 Best for a Couple – 100 Mbps – Connect Plus/Performance

Connect Plus/Performance is a good option if you are two people living together. 

100 Mbps is enough for two 4k Netflix streams, casual browsing, and other background processes. 

However, if you both work from home and have a lot of video conferences and upload files, consider a faster internet plan. Because with this plan, you only get 5 Mbps upload speed.




#4 Best for Large Households – 600 Mbps – Superfast/Blast!

If you are a household of 5+ members with tons of smart devices, consider the Superfast/Blast! plan

600 Mbps will allow everyone in the house to watch 4K movies simultaneously. And since it has a 15 Mbps upload speed, it will handle the smart devices that have a tendency to always upload data. 




#5 Best for Extreme Users – 1200 Mbps – Gigabit Extra/Gigabit         

Consider the Gigabit Extra internet plan if you are a large family (8+) or want real quick downloads. 

It will provide you with 1200 Mbps download speed, and 35 Mbps upload speed. This is enough for more than 10 people to stream 4K movies simultaneously. 

Just make sure to get a top-tier router that can take advantage of such a speed. 

Yet, if you are a small workplace, I would stay away from this plan. This is because the upload speed of 35 Mbps. 

This will not be enough for more than a couple of video conferences at the same time. And any large file upload might disrupt the calls. 




#6 Best for Businesses – 6000 Mbps – Gigabit Pro

If you are a small to medium-sized business, then Xfinity’s Gigabit Pro internet plan is a good option. 

Not only because of the insane download speed of 6000 Mbps which is enough for 50+ people to use the internet without any issues. 

But also because it’s a symmetrical internet plan. Meaning it has the same download speed as upload speed. 

This makes it possible to have hundreds of video calls on the internet simultaneously. 




Xfinity Upload Speeds

Since most of Xfinity’s internet plans are cable internet, the upload speed is often limited. Here you can see a table with what upload speed you get for what download speed.

Download SpeedUpload Speed
50 Mbps10 Mbps
100 Mbps10 Mbps
300 Mbps10 Mbps
600 Mbps20 Mbps
900 Mbps20 Mbps
1200 Mbps35 Mbps
6000 Mbps6000 Mbps

10 Mbps upload speed – With 10 Mbps, you can have between 2-5 teams call simultaneously, depending on the quality of the call. However, this is if you exclude any background uploads, something smart devices often do. So a more realistic number would probably be four calls at most. 

20 Mbps upload speed – Most homes should be fine with this upload speed. Even if everyone is working and having school from home. 20 Mbps would be enough for up to 5 high-quality video calls and 10 lower-quality ones.

35 Mbps upload speed – This will definitely be enough for most normal families. 35 Mbps is enough for upwards of 15 teams calls. That said, if you are in a smaller workplace, this is still not enough. Because any large file upload will disrupt all the video calls. 

6000 Mbps upload speed – Now we are talking! 6000 Mbps would be enough for up to 3000 teams calls at the SAME TIME; wow. This upload speed is enough for a workplace. And honestly, it’s completely unnecessary for nearly all homes.

Comcast Xfinity Internet Prices

Xfinity’s internet prices are different all over the country and are constantly changing. Therefore, for 100% up-to-date information, go here

However, you should know a couple of things about Xfinity’s pricing before you order. 

Xfinity Internet Prices After 12 months

When ordering Xfinity internet, always check how much of a price increase you get after 12 months. Depending on the plan and deal, it could be anything from $15 more to more than $60. 

Sometimes it also increases again after 24 months, and even 36 months sometimes. Making some plans more than double as expensive as in the beginning. 

When your contract ends, always make sure to renegotiate your internet plan. Otherwise, you will pay a lot more than you need to. 

For more info on this, check out our article on Xfinity Prices After 12 Months.

Xfinity Internet Hidden Costs

Xfinity also has a tendency to find a way to charge for everything. Here is a table of all of Xfinity’s hidden fees. 

FeeAmount
Professional installation$89.99
Self-installation $39.99
Reactivation fee$6.00
Late payment fee$10.00
Early cancelation feeUsually $10 x the number of months left on the contract
xFi Gateway$14.00/mo.
xFi Gateway Complete$25.00/mo.
Own modem & router$0/mo (except for buying them)
Xfinity FlexIncluded
Data overage fee$10 per 50 GB
No data caps$30/mo. extra

Xfinity Internet Equipment

When it comes to Xfinity’s internet equipment, you have three options. 

  1. xFi Gateway
  2. xFi Gateway Complete
  3. Bring your own
Wi-Fi optionMonthly feeDevice
xFi Gateway$14xFi Gateway (a modem/router combo device)
xFi Gateway Complete$25xFi Gateway, xFi Pod, unlimited data
Own equipment Free (except for buying them)Bring your own modem and router (either as one device or two)

We here at Networks Hardware recommend you always buy your own equipment. This is because it’s simply cheaper in the long run

That said, the XFi is not bad at all. And if you get it you get free replacements and tech support.

With XFi Complete, you also get unlimited data and an XFi Pod. The unlimited data costs $30/mo otherwise. The Pod works as a Wi-Fi extender, providing a better Wi-Fi signal in larger homes.

You also don’t have to decide what devices you have to get. 

That said, if you decide to buy, we have created these articles to help you choose the best one for you!

Also, if you are uncertain if you want a modem/router combo or separate devices, check out this article. (Spoiler, we think separate are better).

How to Get Xfinity Wi-Fi Plans

You only need to go through three simple steps to get Xfinity’s Wi-Fi plans. They are; 

  1. Choose what internet plan/package you want to have
  2. Order it online, or call Xfinity
  3. Add xFi or xFi Complete to your internet plan if you wish. 

Comcast Xfinity Availability

Xfinity is available in 40 states in the US.

However, just because it is available in your state doesn’t mean it will be available at your exact address.

Comcast Xfinity Internet Types

Comcast Xfinity offers two types of internet services. The most common one is Cable internet, and the other is Fiber Optic internet. If you have the choice, go for fiber. 

Fiber Internet

Fiber uses fiber signals to provide your home with internet. These signals get converted by your ONT into digital signals that your router uses to create your home network. Thus, for Fiber, you don’t need a modem. 

If you live in a city or close to one, chances are you have access to Xfinity fiber internet. This will allow you to access the Xfinity Gigabit Pro plan (6000 Mbps), otherwise unavailable. 

Cable Internet

Cable internet is the most widely available type of internet in the US (except satellite internet). This means that there is a big chance it will be available for you. 

Cable internet uses the television infrastructure to provide your home with internet. This means that if you have access to Cable internet, you can access Cable television. 

If you have to choose between Cable and DSL, go with Cable internet. It’s faster, often has a better price and is more reliable. 

Xfinity Fiber vs. Xfinity Cable 

Fiber is, in general, a better option than Cable internet for a couple of reasons. The first is that fiber internet has much higher upload speeds than cable internet. 

The second reason is that fiber is more stable during peak hours. Whereas Cable internet often will be slower when your neighborhood is using the most of it. 

The last thing is that generally, the latency in fiber is lower than in Cable internet. This will improve the response time, mostly noticeable in video games and video calls.

Current Xfinity Deals

  • Right now, you also get Xfinity Flex included in your internet offers and Peacock Premium. This allows you to stream Peackook content on your TV using the Flex device. All for free.
  • You can also sign up for Xfinity Mobile. This is an affordable mobile service for any Xfinity internet customer. With Xfinity Mobile, you can save up to $400 per year of your bill. So it’s worth comparing the price with your current Mobile service. From my experience, Xfinity Mobile is best when you buy a certain amount of Gigabit per month and then share it between the family.  
  • You can also get access to Visa prepaid cards if you are a student, teacher, or military personnel/veteran. These can be upwards of $150
  • Moreover, if you bundle many Xfinity services, you will get a much better price. If you also take a 24-month contract, you can get some of the best deals in the market. 
  • You can also get HBO Max, SHOWTIME, or Netflix included in the high-tier bundles.

Here are some of the groups that Xfinity offers special deals for right now. 

Unfortunately, if you are a senior, you don’t get any deal automatically. However, you might still get a better offer. You can learn more about this here

Also, some of Xfinity’s “deals” are a bit questionable. 

For example, they offer $10 off per month if you use automatic payments and accept to have your internet bill paperless. The thing is that all the prices have already factored in. This makes it more of a punishment for you that don’t want to have that, instead of an offer.

Xfinity Internet Bundles

Xfinity Bundles are some of the best ways to save money on your internet/TV/phone bill. 

Depending on what you bundle and where you live, you can save up to $20 on two services, $40 on three services, and  $60 on four services (where Xfinity offers security plans).

Comcast Xfinity No-contract Internet Plan 

Only ever get Xfinity no-contract plans if you’re sure you will not need Xfinity for more than 6 months. 

Because the early termination fee is most often $10 multiplied by the number of months left of the contract. And the extra cost for picking a no-contract plan is between $10-$30 per month. 

This means that it’s cheaper to just pay the early termination fee in just between four to four to six months.

Therefore, only go for Xfinity’s no-contact plans if you know that you will use their service for a very short amount of time (between 1-6 months). 

It will be cheaper to pay the early termination fee for anything more. 

Xfinity Data Caps

Xfinity’s internet plans have a standard data cap of 1.2 Terabit. You can pay an extra $30 a month or get the xFi Gateway Complete ($25/month) to remove it. 

So, now the question is, how much is 1.2 Terabit? I know that number doesn’t mean much to me anyway. 

According to Xfinity, 1.2 Terabit of data is enough to “video conference for 3,500 hours, watch 1,200 hours of distance learning videos, stream 500 hours of high-definition video content a month, or play more than 34,000 hours of online games.” [2]

And after some research, I can confirm that this is mostly correct. It will be enough for 3500 hours of video conference, but not of the highest quality. And this is the case for the 1,200 hours of distance learning videos as well. 

Another way of putting it would be that you would need to watch 6 hours of 4K movies per day the entire month for you to reach the data cap

It’s, therefore, pretty easy to conclude that most people won’t reach the data cap. And if you are going to use more than 1.2 Terabit, you probably already know it. 

For more info, check out our article on Xfinity Data Caps.

Xfinity Flex

Xfinity Flex is a 4K streaming TV box available for you that got Xfinity internet service. It comes as a small device that gives you access to free TV, music, and movie apps, Xfinity’s on-demand library, and a couple of extra channels – and the best of all, it’s completely free.

Xfinity gives you this to make you a more “sticky” customer. Making it less convenient to change providers. So keep that in mind before you order it!

Xfinity Prepaid Internet

Xfinity Prepaid Internet is a pay-as-you-go internet option that offers you a slower internet connection for a flat rate and no contract. [3]

It’s a good option for you with infrequent internet usage that want to save money. Because you can turn it on and off as you wish. 

The cost right now is $45/month and a $35 starter kit which includes a modem/router combo. You need to pay for this and can not start the service with your own modem.

You can, however, put their modem in bridge mode and connect your own Wi-Fi router. 

You can also get your own modem later on the line if you call and ask them to change the MAC-ID of your modem because you have “slow internet” or it is “constantly dropping”. 

Even though this is a bit unnecessary because you don’t pay any rental fee for this modem. 

The internet speed you get with Xfinity Prepaid Internet depends on where you live. Still, generally, it’s between 50-100 Mbps download speed and 5-10 in upload speed. This should be enough for around 1-3 people.

For more info check out our article on Xfinity Prepaid Internet.

Comcast Xfinity Customer Service

To reach Xfinity’s customer service call: (800) 934-6489.

Before you call, make sure you have your address, account number, and phone number connected with your Xfinity account ready at hand. 

The support is open between 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday — Saturday. 

Find more info on our article on Xfinity Customer Service.

How good is Xfinity Customer Support?

A couple of years ago, Xfinity got a lot of criticism for their support being bad, and this was certainly the case.

Since then, however, they have restructured and become a lot better – not perfect – but better. 

This is strengthened by Xfinity’s customer satisfaction ratings, which got 67/100 in 2021. This is nothing incredible, but still the third-best of all the internet providers. 

Even if that doesn’t say much…internet service providers aren’t exactly known for their support. 

Xfinity Internet vs. Other Top Providers

Xfinity stacks up pretty well most of the time compared to the other internet providers. But there are situations where you might want to pick another internet provider. 

Xfinity vs. AT&T

Suppose you have to decide between Xfinity and AT&T, then look at the offerings. If you only want internet and stand between AT&T’s fiber internet and Xfinity’s cable internet, get AT&T’s fiber internet most of the time. 

Because like I said earlier, fiber has a lot faster upload speed, is more stable during peak hours, and has an average lower latency than cable internet. 

That said, if you want to bundle a bunch of services, like TV, voice, and internet, then Xfinity will be cheaper most of the time. 

Also, if you only have access to AT&T DSL, then get Xfinity internet. Cable is simply superior to DSL internet in every way.

Xfinity vs. Verizon 

Between Xfinity and Verizon, you need to look at the offers in your area. If you have access to Verizon fiber and only want internet – it will most often be your best bet. 

Because fiber will give you a faster upload speed for video calls, lower average latency for video games, and a more stable speed that won’t be affected by your neighborhood’s usage. 

But if you want to bundle your TV, voice, and internet, then Xfinity will most often be your best option. 

Because their contract bundles are some of the best on the market. 

If you only have access to Verizon DSL, then go with Xfinity. Cable internet is just better than DSL in every way. Providing faster, more reliable internet for a better price. 

Xfinity Internet Essentials Program

Comcast Xfinity Essential Program is an internet offer for low-income households. It provides you with 50 Mbps download, and 10 Mbps upload speed for just $9.95/month. You can also get the 100 Mbps download speed and 10 Mbps upload plan for $29.95/month. [4]

To enroll, you need to qualify for a government program like the National School Lunch Program, Medicaid, housing assistance, SSI, SNAP, or a Federal Pell Grant.

To learn more read our article on Xfinity Internet Essentials Programs.

Xfinity App Review

Like most other internet providers, Xfinity also has an app. But in contrast to most others, it’s actually pretty good. 

From the app, you can check your data usage and connection, restart and reset your modem, check your security status, and set parental controls to restrict certain devices. 

Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspots Explained

Xfinity hotspot is a way for you to save cellphone data by connecting to Wi-Fi hotspots whenever they are available [5]. And since there are millions of them all over the country, they will be available a fair bit of the time. 

This is an offer that only Xfinity customers who have Xfinity Mobile or a Performace Starter/Connect plan or above have access to.

And this is nothing you have to ever think about. Because whenever you are close enough to a hotspot, your phone will connect to it automatically. Meaning you will save data without even noticing it. 

To turn this on for your phone, download the Xfinity app and log in using your Xfinity username and password. 

Bottom Line: Should You Get Xfinity internet?

Overall, Xfinity is one of the better internet providers in the US. They offer fast internet plans for competitive prices and are widely available. Plus, you will have access to their Wi-Fi hotspots all over the country, saving data on your phone. 

They are, however, not perfect. Their no-contact plans are expensive, and so are their unlimited data offers. They also have pretty steep price increases after 12-24 months. 

And like all other internet providers in the US, their support could be much better. 

All that said, Xfinity is very often the best provider available. So if that’s the case for you, don’t hesitate to order today. 

FAQ

Here are some commonly asked questions about Xfinity internet. 

What is the best Xfinity internet plan?

The best Xfinity internet plan depends on your circumstances. For a single person, the 50 Mbps plan is enough. But for a larger family, Xfinity’s 300 Mbps plan is a better option. 

If you want to learn more about what internet speed you need, check out our article on internet speeds.

What is the cheapest Xfinity internet package?

The cheapest Xfinity internet package is the Performance Starter/Connect internet plan that offers you 50 Mbps starting at $19.99/month. 

That said, you can get away with paying less if you qualify for Xfinity Internet Essentials Program. 

What Xfinity internet plan is best for gaming?

Technically the best internet plan for gaming would be the Gigabit Pro plan. Since that will be a fiber-optic connection, you will have less latency. 

But realistically, any Xfinity internet plan will be good for gaming as long as you don’t have too many other people and devices using the internet simultaneously.

So for gaming, just make sure that you get enough internet for your household, and you should be fine.

How fast is Xfinity’s upload speed?

Xfinity’s upload speed is on the slower side. Depending on your internet plan, you will get between 5-35 Mbps

However, if you get the Xfinity Gigabit Pro plan, you will have 6000 Mbps upload speed. But this is only available in cities and will set you back $299.95/month. 

Why is my Xfinity Wi-Fi so slow?

First, do a speed test and compare the result to what you pay for. If it’s close or the same, you need to upgrade your internet plan to get faster internet. 

But if it’s far away, check out our guide on how to fix slow Xfinity internet

Is Xfinity internet expensive?

It depends. Sometimes, yes, other times no. 

Generally, Xfinity’s internet is cheaper initially, but the prices will increase as you cross the 12 and 24-month mark. 

So always renegotiate as soon as your contract has run its course.

Is Xfinity Internet DSL or cable?

Xfinity only offers cable internet and sometimes fiber optic internet. Never DSL internet. 

The difference is that cable internet uses the coaxial infrastructure, while DSL uses the copper lines. Fiber uses the newest fiber optic infrastructure. 

I don’t want to rent a gateway from Xfinity; what do I do?

If you don’t want to rent a gateway from Xfinity, you will have to buy your own equipment. 

This includes a modem and a router, either as a single combo device or as separate devices (we recommend separate devices, learn why here). 

If you want some help with choosing, check out our article on the subject:

Are Comcast and Xfinity the same thing?

Yes, Comcast is the parent company of Xfinity. So they are the same company under different brands and names.
