Xfinity vs. AT&T: Comparing Internet Plans

As you can see from the above tables, Xfinity offers cable internet speeds in the low-tiered packages, and fiber speeds in the gigabit plan, whereas AT&T offers DSL internet speeds in just one of its plans, while the rest of them use fiber connection.

Also, Xfinity offers lower upload speeds, i.e. 5-10 Mbps in its basic packages and up to 35 Mbps for its gigabit package. This might seem a tad too unreasonable as compared to AT&T, which has higher upload speeds for its basic and gigabit plans.

Moreover, Xfinity has a 1.2 TB data cap in all of its plans, which is alright since it doesn’t seem likely to run out in a household of many devices connected to the same internet. On the other hand, AT&T has an unlimited data cap, meaning that the user might never run out of it.

Final Verdict

It seems like AT&T offers the best internet speeds and those too at a symmetrical pace on account of having a fiber internet connection in the majority of its plans.

However, Xfinity is a more reasonable internet service provider for average internet users. For one, it is widely available in the US, all 36 states, so you are much more likely to locate it in your area. Two, Xfinity has a huge range of internet plans in all divisions of the US. The basic package might seem unreliable, but it is good enough for people from low-income households, who need an internet connection just to get through the day. So, determine your internet needs before finalizing whether to get Xfinity or AT&T. The comparison in this blog will surely help you make the right decision!
