When it comes to choosing the best cable and Internet package, it can be just as challenging to find out which providers are in your area as it is to ferret out the best price.
For fast speeds and lots of bundling options, XFINITY® should be at the top of your list. But even though they are one of the largest cable and Internet providers in the country, there’s no guarantee that specific services are available in your area.
If you want to know whether your home is in an XFINITY service area — and what speeds and packages you can get — here’s how to find out.
How do I check if XFINITY is available in my area?
XFINITY currently provides services to cities across 40 U.S. states. The best way to find out if your preferred services are available is to use an online search tool. There are plenty of search tools out there, but you’ll want to use one that is designed to pinpoint which providers are ready and able to deliver services to your specific area.
Once you’ve confirmed that XFINITY is available near you, visit some of their retailer sites for more detailed information about the specific packages, services, and bundles offered in your area. From there, reach out to an XFINITY representative. They’ll be able to walk you through the rest of the process directly — from checking service pricing at your precise location to scheduling an installation.
What services does XFINITY offer?
XFINITY offers a wide range of network services, including Internet speeds up to 105 Mbps and access to 500,000 XFINITY Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide. XFINITY also provides 3G and 4G Internet services, and if you’re located near their growing fiber network, you may have access to connection speeds of up to 2 Gbps for just $299 per month.
If you’re a TV junkie, XFINITY can help you make the most of your TV— they offer a complete HD experience, whether you’re watching live or catching up on your favorite show with XFINITY On Demand™. You can also take your TV viewing anywhere you go with the XFINITY TV App, which gives you access to your channel lineup, DVR, and On Demand programming via tablet, smartphone, or any other mobile device.
Which factors affect specific XFINITY service availability?
It may surprise you that your neighbor — who lives just down the road — can enjoy a TV or Internet service that isn’t available for your home. But while it might seem unbelievable, it’s a real situation that both customers and providers have to deal with.
While there aren’t usually any official contracts keeping service providers out of specific geographic areas, expansion costs and municipal regulations can restrict availability. Even though XFINITY has a large service area, there are some spots where alternate providers have already run lines and made expansion more difficult. That’s not to say that XFINITY won’t expand into those areas eventually, but it may take a bit more time and effort.
Another limiting factor could be the type of infrastructure accessible from your house. Some XFINITY services — like the XFINITY Gigabit Pro package — require a fiber-optic line, while others use coaxial cable connections. Depending on the infrastructure available to you, your access to different services provided by XFINITY may be limited. Check availability before you set your heart on a specific package or plan your budget around an amazing deal that may not be available at your location.
No matter how amped you are to start surfing the Internet and flipping through channels, everything comes down to which services are available at your home. Check this XFINITY availability map to find out whether or not you can start enjoying XFINITY speeds and programming.
