Living in the US means, you have a lot of great Internet & cable options to choose from. Today we are talking about two of the most popular options for that. Comcast’s Xfinity & Verizon’s Fios. Both of them are extremely popular & they kind have different approaches as far as their services go. Let’s talk about this in detail in the upcoming sections of this article. If you’re interested, stick around. It’ll be worth it.
Xfinity vs Fios services
Both Xfinity & Fios provide TV & Internet services. However, Fios is entirely based on Fiber Optics while Xfinity is mostly old school cable. So, compared to Xfinity, FIOS has faster Internet speeds in general. On the other hand, though Xfinity has comparatively lower Internet speeds, it does have way better availability. While Fios exists in 9 total states as of now, Xfinity is available in 30+ states (35 to be exact). So, in many states, you can’t get Fios at least right now. Talking about available on-demand content though, Xfinity has a wider range of content compared to Fios.
Xfinity vs Fios Pricing
The pricing is kind of a Mixed bag here. Xfinity starts at $65 per month if you’re getting a 12-month subscription and Fios actually starts at $79.99 per month with a 24-month agreement. Depending on exactly what you need, you can choose between the two.
Xfinity vs Fios Customer Support & Satisfaction
This one is also a mixed bag with differences based on areas of service. So, customers of both service providers have faced good & bad experiences but, Fios had better rankings compared to Xfinity so, maybe they’re slightly better but, again they have limited availability so, it really can’t be said what kind of experience you’ll get but, hopefully, none of them will be terrifying.
What do we recommend?
Well, we’ll say, if you have both options available in your area, try asking people in your area who are already using the services from these providers. That’ll give you a better idea about those services in your specific area. But, in general, you shouldn’t have any problem with either of these. Figure out what you need the most & then make your decision & you should be good to go.
