Is Xfinity good?

Xfinity’s cable TV and internet services tend to be reliable. And it has free perks, like Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots and the Xfinity Stream app (a dream team for streaming live TV on your mobile device). Plus, getting started is easy because you can usually install everything yourself.

But your mileage may vary—Xfinity’s network is gigantic, and its services and plans vary from place to place. Also, we’re not fans of the hidden fees that come with its equipment or the data caps on Xfinity internet plans.

Xfinity features

Xfinity’s prices are just one part of their internet and TV plans. Here’s what else you’ll need to plan for if you want to get Xfinity service in your home.

Xfinity equipment

Xfinity xFi gateway unboxing with required cables and instructions

Xfinity internet customers can get optional hardware ranging from the xFi Gateway combo router/modem ($14.00/mo.) to the free Xfinity Flex streaming stick. Xfinity TV customers can also get the Xfinity X1 cable box, which includes features like DVR storage and a user-friendly voice remote that makes it easy to find the channels you’re looking for.

Vist our Xfinity equipment guide for a full breakdown of Xfinity’s free and rentable hardware options. From routers to Wi-Fi extenders, Xfinity has hardware options that’ll suit any TV or internet customer.

Peacock Premium

Xfinity is the latest media company to have its own streaming service. Peacock is the streaming home for NBCUniversal shows like The Office and Saturday Night Live, along with a growing library of movies and streaming originals like A.P. Bio and MacGruber. Xfinity internet customers can get a free Peacock Premium subscription, which normally costs $4.99 per month.

Check out our full Peacock review to learn more about the streaming service.

Xfinity availability

Xfinity is currently available in 39 states, divided into three regions—West, Central, and Northeast—so your available packages and pricing will vary based on which region your state falls into. For more information on Xfinity’s availability across the US, check out our Xfinity availability map.

Final take: Is Xfinity worth it?

While Xfinity’s rates won’t have you jumping up and down, clapping, and shouting, “Hooray, hooray, I am the lucky birthday child!”—the prices aren’t higher than most TV and internet providers, either.

With Xfinity’s high-speed internet plans and respectable channel lineups, you’re likely to have an overall positive experience.

And if you take advantage of Xfinity’s snazzy perks like the X1, Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots, and Xfinity Stream app—well. Maybe you’ll be a lucky birthday child, after all.

Xfinity FAQ

Is Xfinity TV and internet in my area?

Xfinity is available in most US states, but you’ll have to check if it services your neighborhood. Enter your zip code above to check Xfinity availability in your area.

What is the cheapest Xfinity package?

The cheapest Xfinity packages are Connect ($19.99/mo., 50 Mbps) and Popular TV ($49.99/mo., 125+ channels). Check out our guide to Xfinity’s cheapest packages for more Xfinity deals.

Is the Xfinity Flex really free?

Xfinity Flex is super duper free. You can request it when you sign up for your Xfinity internet plan (although your customer service rep will probably railroad you into getting it before you get a word in edgewise).

However, if you get an Xfinity TV plan, you’re not eligible for an Xfinity Flex. That’s okay-ish since you’ll get the X1 DVR instead. Unfortunately, the X1 falls into the non-free category due to its $14.95 per month service fee.

Is Comcast or Xfinity better?

Comcast and Xfinity are the same thing—you can’t trip us up with your trick question!

In 2010, Comcast started using Xfinity as its trade name for TV, internet, and phone services.

And as part of Comcast, Xfinity has built-in relationships with Comcast’s other products, such as NBCUniversal. That’s one of the reasons you’ll get the Peacock Premium streaming service for free with your Xfinity cable TV service.

What is the best Xfinity deal?

The best Xfinity deals are Popular Double Play and Gigabit. Both packages offer excellent download speeds and value for under $100.00 per month.

Visit our Xfinity deals guide for more information on the best Xfinity savings.

How reliable is Xfinity?

According to our customer satisfaction survey, 62% of Xfinity customers are satisfied with their internet service. In addition, 69% of Xfinity customers are satisfied with their internet speed, tying it for first place with Verizon. Cable service will always be dependent on how heavy usage is in your network, so for more reliable speeds, we recommend fiber internet if you have the option.

Methodology

For our Xfinity reviews, we spent hours analyzing Xfinity plans for areas including price, performance, and channel counts to see how they stacked up against the competition. We also drew from our annual internet customer satisfaction and TV customer satisfaction surveys to see how real Xfinity customers felt about the provider.
