Is Xfinity good?

Xfinity’s 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 pros and cons

Pros

  • Reliable service

Xfinity’s Western residential customers (like you) should rejoice at the affordable 100 Mbps plan. You can stream TV on your Roku without worrying about constant buffering.

But if you have a larger family or a lot of smart-home devices, another plan might be a better option for you, so be sure to check out our full Xfinity internet service review.

In Xfinity’s West region, Digital Preferred doesn’t require an annual contract—but that makes it more expensive than the similar-but-contracted Preferred Plus plan. Unless you move so frequently that you never unpack your boxes, plan to tie yourself down for a year with Xfinity.

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.

What is the cheapest Xfinity package?

The cheapest Xfinity internet plan is Performance Starter, which is $19.99 per month in Xfinity’s West region. It offers download speeds of only 25 Mbps—that’s not fast, but if you don’t stream TV or make video calls, you’ll be fine.

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.
