How to Lower Your Xfinity Bill

1. Trim your TV channels

If your Xfinity TV service boasts hundreds of channels but you don’t even flip past them when you channel surf, it’s probably time to revisit your subscription. This doesn’t mean you need to cut the cord and ditch cable TV altogether. But downsizing to a TV package that offers fewer channels will probably save you a buck or twenty. Just check out the price difference between Xfinity’s different TV plans if you don’t believe me:

2. Reduce your internet speed

Our number one tip for chopping some dollars off of your internet bill is to reduce your download speed. Sure, big numbers and internet that’s faster than a street race sound fun, but the truth is, they’ll cost you more. Of course, you don’t want to trim your internet speed down so far that you and your family can’t enjoy online fun. We recommend taking a look at our guide on how many Mbps you need, then taking inventory of how many people and devices connect to your internet at the same time. This should give you a better idea of how much speed you need. You can also check out our internet speed recommendations for streaming services if you enjoy Netflix a little too much. (No such thing!) To top that off, we put together an internet speed guide for Zoom to make sure you’re covered if you work from home.

3. Limit your data usage

If you’ve ever gone over your one terabyte (TB) data cap with Xfinity, you know what to expect the next morning: an email shaking its digital finger at you and warning that you might be charged the next time you go over your data limit.

Xfinity gives you two of these so-called “freebies,” and they reset after 12 months.3 But if you go over your data cap a third time within one year, Xfinity automatically charges you an extra $10 to add 50 GB of additional data to your account.

Those charges for extra data won’t go over $200 each month. Yup, $200.

Whether it’s $10 or $200, that’s an extra slap to your wallet. We can’t blame you for avoiding paying for extra data, and luckily there are a few things you can do.

4. Ditch the rental equipment

Xfinity provides its customers with a modem and router combo for your internet, plus cable boxes for the TV. This equipment costs you a rental fee each month, which can quickly add up.
