It’s good service but very expensive after you get a deal and it expires the prices go higher on the package, so after That you are not eligible for new deals and in my area xfinity is the only provider and they know that so there’s no mercy on anyone, I am disabled with low income ,older women my daughter lives with me and she’s in in a training program and she does some classes in zoom she has to go to friends house or hotspot and I need at least Wifi that way I can zoom my medical appointments and other agencies for my mental health my zoom meeting, as if right now I have no provider or Wifi and it’s very depressing

Although the service I have received has been very good and I have experienced only a few hours of down time, I would like to see better pricing and faster service
