Are you an Xfinity or Comcast user? If you are wondering if these are two different brands, no they are not. After researching trademarks, I discovered that Xfinity is the trade name for Comcast Cable Communications, LLC, a subsidiary of Comcast Corporation.
Xfinity is one of the leading providers of cable television services in the United States. and is also known for offering internet, telephony and wireless services. Before the rebranding in February 2010, the services were popular as Comcast Digital Cable, Comcast Digital Voice, and Comcast High-Speed Internet, which were rebranded as “Xfinity TV,” “Xfinity Voice,” and “Xfinity Internet” respectively. Because of that, you will see both names being used interchangeably on the internet.
Here I’ll cover the Xfinity account signup process, how to access it, and the issues you may encounter along the way.
