Xfinity and Frontier internet prices seem to play leapfrog. Depending on what speed you’re looking at, one or the other might offer a better promotional price.
That said, we think Frontier’s Fiber internet service is the best deal thanks to its low cost, fast speeds, and unlimited data options—not to mention its newer and generally more reliable fiber technology.
But not everyone can get Frontier’s fiber internet service. And if you’re stuck with its DSL service, Xfinity internet is the clear winner. Here’s what Xfinity’s promotional prices look like for the Central part of the US:
In today’s world, DSL internet doesn’t quite cut it. Frontier’s lowest speed of 6 Mbps is barely enough to surf the web and send a few emails. We imagine you’ll hear dial-up noises in your head while trying to load Gmail or other sites.
And the 25 Mbps and 45 Mbps speeds aren’t much better—but they’ll at least connect you to a Zoom call if you’re the only person online in your home.
So if it’s a tossup between Xfinity and Frontier DSL internet, go with Xfinity.
But, like we said, if you can grab Frontier’s Fiber internet, go for it. It comes with no contracts and unlimited data (Xfinity caps data at 1.2 TB), plus the prices are pretty low for the speeds you get.
