by Barton Strawn | Feb 4, 2016 | Brand Guides
offers a wide range of services — including TV, Internet, and Voice. With so many options on the market, and several different bundle packages available, it can be difficult to find the right Internet service for your needs. We’ve broken down some of the most popular Internet-only packages from XFINITY to help you choose the package that’s right for you.
Important Terms to Know
Before checking out the various packages that XFINITY offers, it’s a good idea to understand some key terms that are often used when discussing Internet options.
The most important term to know when researching Internet packages is “Mbps,” or megabits per second. Mbps refers to how many megabits of information are transferred per second through any given connection — the higher the number, the faster the connection.
Another important term is “broadband.” Broadband
Internet refers to a high-speed connection. It can come in many forms, including DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), cable, fiber optic, and satellite. XFINITY from Comcast offers cable Internet
, which transmits data over existing cable television networks through a cable modem.
Got it? Great! Here’s a breakdown of XFINITY’s cable Internet packages, by price.
