XFINITY is the name used to describe all of the offerings from cable-turned-telecommunications company Comcast Corporation. XFINITY services include digital cable television, voice-over-IP phone services, home security services and high-speed Internet, with packages that offer speeds of up to 105 megabits per second.

Internet Packages

There are a total of five XFINITY high-speed Internet packages offered, beginning with Economy Plus, at 3 Mbps, and topping out at Extreme 105, which offers speeds of 105 Mbps. Comcast's Performance Starter package offers Internet speeds of 6Mbps, its Performance package 25Mbps and its Blast package offers 50Mbps. With slower speeds, the Economy Plus, Performance Starter and Performance packages are more suited toward residential households, while the Blast and Extreme 105 packages are more designed for businesses.

About Comcast

Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Comcast Corporation is the largest cable operator in the United States, serving residential and commercial markets in 40 states. The company began calling its trio of digital cable, high speed Internet and telephone services "XFINITY" in the winter of 2010 as a means of rebranding its services to sidestep the consumer ramifications of its poor customer service history. As of May 2012, it was estimated that over 18.5 million customers use XFINITY Internet.


XFINITY also offers what it calls "XFINITY Connect," which is an online hub that allows users to check their email, social media accounts, calendar, voicemail and contact all from one program. You're able to check your XFINITY Connect hub from any computer that has Internet access or you can download the mobile app for your smartphone or tablet to do so. XFINITY Internet also comes with Constant Guard online protection.

Other Info

XFINITY's Blast, Performance and Extreme 105 Internet packages also offer users complimentary access to over 100,000 Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide, which many customers consider an ideal service for when you're on the go. Special promotions are also offered for first-time XFINITY customers for the first six months of service on its Blast, Performance and Economy Plus plans of $39.99 per month, $29.99 per month and $19.99 per month, respectively. Internet services can also be bundled with other XFINITY services, such as cable, voice and home security.
