I have two different accounts that I use for my internet. I use Uverse for its great customer service. However, when it comes to actual internet, I use xfinity. I use xfinity because the internet is free of ads that xfinity can’t afford to run on my account. That alone is worth the price difference.
That’s the power of xfinity. Although it’s free, it also has a few perks. For example, you can change your provider without any restrictions or limitations and get the internet you want without having to pay a penny. However, you can only change your internet provider, not your cable provider, which is really great because you can still stream Xfinity games on your TV. Also, the xfinity apps are very easy to use.
I can’t remember the last time I saw a cable provider offer its customers the ability to change their internet provider without paying a penny. That’s very important for internet speed and reliability. Cable companies should be in a position to offer their customers something they cannot do themselves. As a result, it is time for internet providers to stop charging for the ability to change internet providers.
In the US, it costs $100 before you can actually change providers. Most internet providers in the US charge a monthly fee. This is very confusing to the average internet user. The average internet user can’t change their internet provider without a $100/month charge. To make it even worse, the average internet user will not be able to use their preferred internet service for any time before the end of their contract.
The main problem with the current model is that it only works if you have a “standard” internet connection. Without an internet connection, you can’t even change your internet provider. What happens if you lose your internet connection? You can’t watch your favorite shows, watch streaming movies, and go to your favorite websites. A single internet failure for any of these reasons could leave you without internet for days. That’s not good for anyone.
xfinity’s plan is to bring internet access to those who dont have an internet connection in the same way as the cable companies bring the internet to the homes of those who dont have cable. Uverse plans to do the same, but for streaming instead of cable. Which in turn is bad because those who dont have internet are the ones who can’t watch all those shows and movies you want to see, because they cant stream them.
One of the big criticisms of Uverse is that the internet speeds are so slow that it takes hours to stream a movie or series. This makes it impossible for those without broadband internet to watch a show or movie and those with broadband internet will never have the chance to. With Uverse, you can watch the newest episodes of shows like Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the next Mortal Kombat movie, and of course, even more movies.
With Uverse, you can get a great selection of shows and movies that you can stream at ultra high speed, like a Netflix like experience. This is a huge benefit for those with no internet connection, but especially for those who don’t have cable or DSL.
If you are a Verizon or AT&T customer, they will let you use their internet in order to watch the latest episodes of shows like Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Walking Dead, or even movies like Avengers: Endgame. That’s huge for those of us who dont have access to a satellite or cable provider.
