I will never move to an area where Xfinity is unavailable. SPECTRUM is the WORST internet service I have ever had. Direct TV is even better than this. Your Equipment is CHEAP. I have internet issues multiple times a Day with no outages in the area. Equipment replaced once and being told to replace again. This is RIDICULOUS. Do not use Spectrum. First time Customer and this is my experience!!!
