Xfinity internet plans – Comcast plans
Xfinity / Comcast like most other companies (including car dealers) don’t make it easy to see what you are really getting and what the “out the door” cost will be. Cell phone providers are notorious – (though T-mobile lists out the door prices – bravo!) So here is a plain and simple list of all… Continue reading Xfinity internet plans – Comcast plans
