Is Xfinity good?

Xfinity plans can be good. Xfinity cable TV and internet services tend to be reliable, and the provider offers 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.

Pros

  • Reliable service
  • Freebies included
  • Easy self-installation

Cons

  • Prices that vary by area
  • Overpriced equipment
  • Data caps on most internet plans

Xfinity internet in the West region

Xfinity’s Western residential customers should rejoice at the affordable 200 Mbps Connect More plan. Your family 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, consider starting your plan search with Xfinity’s Fast, Superfast, or Gigabit (formerly Ultrafast) plans. All three plans have excellent download speeds between 400 Mbps and 1,000 Mbps, providing ample amounts of internet bandwidth for your household.

Xfinity internet in the Central region

The Central region’s 200 Mbps plan recently went down in price to better match West Coast prices, and provides a decent speed for one or two devices marathoning your favorite Netflix original series.

If you’re really looking to support multiple streaming devices or some gaming, you might want to upgrade to Xfinity’s Fast, Superfast, or Gigabit plans. Their speeds, between 400 Mbps and 1,000 Mbps, are right in the sweet spot for a household with multiple smart-home devices.

Xfinity internet in the Northeast region

Xfinity’s Northeast plans are much better than they were last year. Xfinity has recently condensed its plans to better match those of other regions, so you’ll no longer find yourself paying $65/mo. for embarrassingly slow speeds.

The best deal you’ll get right now is the super affordable 400 Mbps plan for just $30/mo. You’ll also get that price locked in for the first 24 months. The other plans aren’t too bad either if you need more juice.

Just keep an eye on Xfinity’s contract requirements, Northeasterners—as the Rumplestiltskin of the telecom world, Xfinity loves to hide things in the fine print.

Xfinity TV in the West region

Xfinity’s TV prices in the West region seem low, but there’s a catch—each plan requires a one-year contract. It might be worth it to commit to a year of the Popular TV and Ultimate TV packages, but we don’t recommend you buy Choice TV. It’s just a basic cable package—you’d be better off getting an over-the-air antenna.

Popular TV provides cable staples like ESPN and Food Network, but you’ll want to upgrade to Ultimate TV if you’re looking for more niche channels like NBA TV and NFL Network.

Xfinity TV in the Central region

The Central region’s plans look similar to those of the West region, but they’re more expensive at the Popular and Ultimate levels (again, we don’t recommend basic cable plans like Choice TV). The tradeoff is that the Central region doesn’t require a term contract. You’re paying for the freedom to leave at any time.

Xfinity TV in the Northeast region

Xfinity’s Northeast region recently switched from five plans to three, in order to match the rest of the country. If you’re missing the old plans, don’t worry; Popular TV is very similar to the old Extra plan, providing 125+ standard cable channels, and Ultimate TV is a lot like the old Digital Preferred plan with 185+ channels.

The Popular TV package is fine for customers who want to save a bit of money, but Ultimate TV is a better choice for families who want a lot of options, including Cartoon Network and Disney XD.

There is no longer a top-tier package like the old Digital Premier, but you can essentially recreate it by signing up for Ultimate TV and manually adding premium channels like HBO to your bill.

Also, both of the previous basic cable packages (Limited Basic and Choice Limited TV) are replaced by the plan simply called Choice TV, but we wouldn’t recommend it. If you just want to watch local channels, try an OTA antenna.

All of Xfinity’s cable TV plans include the Xfinity Stream app, which lets you watch TV from your mobile device and TV. We’re all for melding with your couch, but mobile viewing comes in handy if the world drags you kicking and screaming from your house.

Xfinity bundles in the West region

Xfinity’s bundles can have a lot of confusing names and details, so we’ll break it down for you. In the West region, Xfinity offers four internet and TV bundles, also known as Double Plays. There are four levels, one for each internet speed. Your savings with each may vary.

Most households will probably want the Popular Double Play (AKA Fast Internet + Popular TV): with 400 Mbps and 125+ channels, it’s perfect for a streaming-heavy family with multiple devices. But if you need more internet horsepower and can’t live without those extra channels (we get it!), the Ultimate Double Play (AKA Superfast Internet + Ultimate TV) might be for you.

You can also turn any Double Play into a Triple Play by adding a phone plan for just $10 per month.

It may seem that some bundles actually cost more than their component parts put together, defeating the point of a bundle, but Xfinity will sometimes apply mystery discounts and charges once the plans are in your cart. You may have to do some fiddling in the checkout process. All internet service providers (ISPs) are at least a little confusing, but Xfinity’s methods are particularly opaque.

Xfinity bundles in the Central region

Like in the other regions, the bundle naming conventions in the Central region allow you to see exactly which internet and TV packages make up each bundle. But also like the West region, the official prices aren’t always the ones you’ll see once you put the plans in your cart.

The Central region’s Super Fast Internet + Popular TV package provides a standard channel count of 125+, as well as 800 Mbps internet speeds, which is more than enough to support all the streaming you’ll need to do to make up for those missing channels.

In the Central region, you can turn any Double Play into a Triple Play for $10 a month, although you’ll also be subject to a 1-year term contract either way. Bummer.

Xfinity bundles in the Northeast region

Xfinity recently expanded its Northeast bundles offerings to three packages that better resemble those in other regions. The old Standard+ More bundle is now called Fast Internet + Popular TV (to which you can choose to add a phone plan) which is exactly what it says on the tin.

The old Signature+ plan got a little bit of a speed boost and is now the Gigabit Extra + Ultimate TV bundle.

And if you want something in the middle, Superfast Internet + Ultimate TV will get you all the cable channels you want without having to pay extra for gigabit streaming speeds.

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 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 no longer get a free Peacock Premium subscription, but it only costs $4.99 per month and has a ton of content. 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?

Xfinity cable TV and internet plans can be worth it, depending on your region and your budget. 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, you can maximize your TV and internet experiences.

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 plan?

The cheapest Xfinity internet plan is 75 Mbps for $25.00 in the West region, 75 Mbps for $30.00 in the Central region, and 200 Mbps for $25.00/mo. in the Northeast region. Unfortunately, plan pricing and naming varies by region.

Is the Xfinity Flex really free?

Sorry, after April 2023, the Xfinity Flex won’t be free anymore. If you don’t mind paying whatever its new price will be, 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 as well 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 deal is Superfast Internet + Ultimate TV, which provides 800 Mbps download speeds and 185+ cable channels. Your savings may vary by region, though, and depending on where you live, it could cost $115–$120 a month.

For more on Xfinity’s money-saving double plays, head over to our Xfinity bundles review.

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.
