Professional Installation vs. self-installation

Even if you're 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. Meanwhile, technicians will usually set installation appointments within a two to four hour window.
