Our Thoughts on the Xfinity vs Frontier Services Contest

Frontier’s basic Internet service plans, even though they are lesser priced than their Xfinity counterparts, seem to offer considerably lower (maximum) downloading speeds – and may only prove ideal for those subscribers who happen to be on a budget. But the former picks up on its latter competitor thanks to its FiOS Internet offerings, which provide blazing (and symmetrical) bandwidth speeds at a lower cost than Xfinity’s Gigabit Pro plan.

On the Cable TV front, we feel that Frontier (credits again go to its FiOS services availability) is the clear winner because the number of maximum TV channels that the company offers reaches to a whopping 400. Frontier channel lineup includes not only local content but also Premium Channels; with many in HD.

The same reviewing platform, which bases its comparative analyses on a range of reputable online resources and customer testimonials/reviews, noted that XFINITY’s bundle deals happened to be the cheapest in the digital services industry – making them hot picks for subscribers.
