Xfinity Internet Overview

Xfinity offers cable and fiber-optic internet in 40 states across the U.S. and is one of the more affordable options for getting high-speed internet. Xfinity internet packages feature some nice perks, including access to Xfinity’s WiFi hotspots across the country. For an extra fee, you can also rent the xFi Gateway modem and router, which can control other compatible home devices.

Xfinity is owned by Comcast, the company behind NBC. That makes bundling Xfinity internet and TV deals all the sweeter, as subscribers to TV packages get access to Peacock Premium, NBC’s streaming service. Or, you can skip bundling and get Xfinity internet only.

Xfinity Internet Plans

Starting at $29.99/mo., a variety of Xfinity internet prices and plans are available for every type of household and user. Consistent 1TB data caps defy overage charges, and most packages top speeds of 100 Mbps.

Xfinity Data Caps

In most states, Xfinity internet customers are subject to the Terabyte Internet Data Usage Plan. Nonetheless, 1 TB of data/mo. is enough for most households to enjoy music, HD video streaming and online gaming.

Xfinity charges $10 per 50 GB of data if you exceed your limit, but limits the overage charges to a maximum of $200/mo. For an additional $30/mo., you can add unlimited data to your plan.

Xfinity accounts feature an online data usage meter to monitor your consumption. The Xfinity account app, available for Android and Apple devices, also includes a data monitoring feature. Before signing up for the unlimited data option, it’s best to monitor your usage for a month or two. The provider gives you two courtesy months, during which you will not incur additional charges for data overages.

With some plans, in select markets, Xfinity offers a flexible data option, designed for light internet users. If you use 5 GB of data or less in a month, you’ll receive a $5 account credit. However, if you exceed 5 GB, Xfinity will charge you $1 per additional GB of data.
