This post is brought to you in partnership with Comcast, but all opinions are honest and my own.
This year has brought many changes to the world around us. With our family spending more time than ever in our home, there is one thing we could not live without: INTERNET. I know many of you are nodding your heads right now because without the internet, where would we be?
As a full time blogger, I need reliable internet on a daily basis. As a Mom of two little girls who love screen time rewards, I need great WiFi coverage as when they’re on the iPad in another room. And as a wife of a man who loves to stream sports, I need a dependable fast connection to keep up with the game.
Our family has valued our Xfinity Internet over the last few years. However, when the whole family started spending every second of the day together at home during the pandemic, we discovered our true appreciation for the Xfinity service and their xFi Pods.
Drying Tears and Ending Internet Frustration with xFi Pods
With children in first grade and preschool requiring access to online learning, and a husband working full time online at home, it’s absolutely necessary for our family to have fast performing consistent internet signals. The first few months we were all together we discovered our home has a lot of hard to reach areas where the WiFi coverage is weak or drops off entirely. There were many tears (from the kids) and lots of frustration as we all struggled to be online in different rooms at the same time. This is where xFi Pods save the day!
We live in a 3 bedroom home with living rooms on each side of the first floor separated by a brick chimney. xFi Pods helped us eliminate WiFi connectivity issues by creating a mesh WiFi network in our home that provides extended, more consistent WiFi coverage for everyone.. We have three xFi Pods – two plugged in downstairs and one upstairs – that stay seamlessly connected as we use different devices around the home. The xFi Pods are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and so easy to install!
The Xfinity xFi Experience
One of the best things about Xfinity is their advanced WiFi experience with access to the best speed, coverage, security and control. Not only does our family have the ultimate speed and coverage we need, but Mom and Dad also have the power to control what our children do on the internet.
The Xfinity app and website allow users to make their internet usage customized to their family’s needs. Everyone in our house has a profile on the Xfinifty app and with xFi features, I can assign everyone’s devices to their own profile. xFi features are so ideal for parents to be able to control and manage their kids’ screen time.
Want to pause access to your child’s device until they’re done with homework? It’s easy with the touch of a button! Worried about too much screen time? You can set an active time limit specifically for your kids. Want to make sure your child doesn’t stumble onto an inappropriate website? Turn on Parental Controls! I have so much comfort in knowing my daughters are protected while they are on their devices thanks to xFi controls.
The power to protect your personal safety from online threats does not end with the children’s devices. With Xfinity Internet you can also get xFi Advanced Security, which monitors all of the devices connected to your home network and blocks suspicious activity while you safely use the internet. The best part is that both the xFi features and xFi Advanced Security are included for free with your service when you have Xfinity’s xFi Gateway.
Why Xfinity Internet is our Must Have for 2020
As my husband and I continue to work at home together, I’m so happy we never have to fight over an internet or WiFi signal. In the case that our children need to participate in distance learning, we are prepared with our Xfinity Internet service for high speed, complete coverage, and secure connections.

This just made me realize that I totally take my internet for granted. Going to write it a love letter ASAP! ♥️
Wow technology has advanced so far and the improvements are invaluable. With my husband and I working from home 100% now we can definitely utilize this. Thanks for sharing everyone should look into these upgrades.
Girlfriends who make you LAUGH! Often through texts, bc everyone’s a workin lady or momma… but that support network pulled me through quarantine!
Internet is so important, especially right now for kids going to school online and of course for those of us that run an online business. This sounds like a great option!
For sure having amazing Internet is a must these days! This is good to know about Xfinity and the xFi Pods.
Sounds like a great internet provider, wish we had it here!

I had to switch from AT&T to Xfinity and wasn’t happy at first. But I’ve been very pleased with their service!

Oh! I need to try the xFi pods. Our reception is really bad upstairs, and that might help!
I haven’t had Comcast internet since I was a kid, but I’ve heard excellent things about Xfinity over the years, and I’d definitely be interested in trying it for myself. I know in the near future, my husband and I would like to move to a more rural area, and we’ll struggle with internet connectivity in that location, so this could be vital! Thanks for sharing your experience!
Sarah Lennon says
We have Xfinity as well and never have any issues with it! We love all the options as well!
Sounds like a great internet service! I’ve used xfinity before and it was a good one.
I feel like Xfinity is a hit or miss – I have it now but I’ve experienced quite a few outages BUT when it’s working, it works great!
