Xfinity Installation Guide

Installation Guide

Our Installation Guide

Moving can be stressful enough without having to worry about your Internet and tv service. Cable and Internet service provider Xfinity makes the installation process as easy as possible. This handy guide will have you streaming and browsing in no time with your new Xfinity internet service.

To get started, first check to see if the service is available in the area you are moving to. Once you have determined that service is available, you have the option to set up your equipment yourself or schedule installation with a technician.

Professional Installation vs. self-installation

Even if you are not a tech-savvy person, the self-installation process through Xfinity is simple and straightforward. Self-installation allows you to install Xfinity at any time, day or night, without scheduling an appointment. Technicians will usually set appointments within a two to four-hour window and require an adult to be present for the installation.

Installation Cost

Installing your Xfinity Internet and cable service yourself is less expensive. The cost of professional installation is currently set at about $90.00, while the cost to self-install only includes the shipping fee for the Xfinity self-install kit. Unfortunately, if you are moving to a home that has not been previously wired for Xfinity, you will need to use a professional to install.

Your self-installation kit

If you have chosen to self-install, you will need to place an order with Xfinity to have the kit shipped to your address. This can be done when you order your service, or you can contact customer service to place your order. You can choose to have it shipped to your home or pick up your kit at the nearest service center.
