I had Comcast/Xfinity for many years and feel their products are extremely good. However their Customer Service (when you could reach someone) was horrible and the costs were far far far too high. It got to a point where I simply could no longer afford it!!!!

Works great When it’s working, but goes out frequently. So that’s why the low rating. Especially for the expensive price for internet only.

Our cable box did not work properly. We disconnected it and brought it down to the xfinity store in the Fresh Pond mall in Cambridge, MA. We handed the broken unit to the service person there, he asked our address and he handed us a brand-new cable unit in new packaging. We were in and out in two minutes. Installed the new cable unit back at home and it worked.
