Frequently Asked Questions

What is DSL?

DSL stands for digital subscriber line and is a type of internet service that runs through phone lines. The big advantage of DSL over dial-up—which also runs through phone lines—is that DSL won’t tie up your phone connection. You can be online and use the phone at the same time. DSL speeds are also much faster than dial-up, reaching up to 100 Mbps with some providers.

What is broadband internet?

The term broadband internet is generally used to refer to any fast internet connection that’s always on. However, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has specific guidelines in place for broadband internet: any service that describes itself as broadband must have speeds of at least 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload. That makes broadband services plenty fast for the average internet user.

How do I hook up an Xfinity cable box and internet?

Installing your Xfinity cable box and internet service is easy once you know what to do. When you sign up, you’ll get a kit with detailed instructions and everything you need. We also have a complete guide to installing Xfinity with step-by-step instructions. But if you’d rather not deal with all that, you can always pay for a professional installation.

How do I log in to Xfinity Wi-Fi?

To log in to Xfinity Wi-Fi, first connect to the Wi-Fi network on your device. Once that’s done, open your web browser and the login page will pop up automatically. Just enter your Xfinity username and password, and you’re good to go. The username and password will be the same that you use to log in to your Xfinity account.

What is Xfinity Blast! Pro?

Xfinity Blast! Pro is an Xfinity internet plan available in some areas in and around Denver. It offers speeds of 250 Mbps. Most Xfinity service areas have a comparable plan with similar speeds, but the name may be different.

Denver Residential Internet Coverage

Denver is a big city, so it comes as no surprise that there are big Internet Service Providers to choose from. Two of the major internet providers in Denver are CenturyLink and Xfinity, and these two cover most of the city and surrounding areas. There are also several smaller providers that offer more localized service.

CenturyLink offers expansive coverage for the Denver area, from the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport to the Centennial Airport. Some parts of the city have access to CenturyLink’s fast fiber connection, including Washington Park. The rest of the city gets affordable CenturyLink DSL service. Heads up: CenturyLink offers speeds up to 1,000 Mbps in the fiber service areas.

Xfinity offers a similar range of coverage for both high-speed cable internet and cable TV service. In fact, Xfinity is one of the top cable providers in Denver. Xfinity speeds also run up to 1,000 Mbps. For the most part, all of Denver is covered by Xfinity—there are only a few small gaps in the downtown area near Stout Street and 15th. Xfinity also offers Xfinity WiFi Hotspots, which allow you to connect when you’re away from home. This is a great way to enjoy streaming and social media on the go without draining your data.

Smaller providers in the area include Live Wire Networks and Kentec Communications. Live Wire offers internet service to residents on the west side of the city, between 17th and 10th and over past Santa Fe Drive. Kentec covers a small area on the east side of downtown from 17th Avenue to 1st.

If none of those internet providers offer good service where you live in Denver, you can also consider Viasat satellite internet, which offers nationwide coverage. Satellite internet services tend to be a little slower and more expensive than their land-based counterparts, but their wide availability is their strong point.
