Let others know about your problems with Xfinity: Write comment
In today's world, we rely on technology more than ever before. So what do you do when Xfinity by Comcast has an outage? We've put together a list of steps to take to make sure you stay connected.
If you experience an Xfinity outage, the first thing you should do is stay calm. Don't panic, as this will only make the situation worse. This also happens with other providers such as Cox or Charter Communications for example. Instead, take a deep breath and follow these steps:
1. First, check to see if there is an official outage in your area. You can do this by visiting the Xfinity website or checking their social media channels.
2. If there is an outage, call Xfinity customer service at 1-800-XFINITY (1-800-934-6489).
3. Customer service will be able to help you troubleshoot the issue and get your service up and running again as quickly as possible.
When an Xfinity outage occurs, checking social media for updates can be a great way to stay informed. Xfinity's official Twitter and Facebook accounts are the best place to look for real-time updates about service outages. You can also check local news pages or other community forums to see if others in your area are experiencing similar problems. By keeping an eye on these platforms, you can gain valuable insight into the cause of the outage and when it is likely to be resolved. Additionally, if you need help troubleshooting your service during an outage, you can often find helpful advice from other customers on these platforms as well.
If you're experiencing an Xfinity outage, there are a few steps you can take to try and fix the issue. One of those steps is restarting your router or modem. This can often help clear up any minor issues and get your service back up and running. To do this, simply unplug your router or modem for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once it's been restarted, check to see if your service has been restored.
When an Xfinity outage occurs, having a backup plan in place can help keep you connected. If you have access to another internet service provider, such as a mobile data connection or a satellite internet provider, you may be able to use those services as alternatives until your Xfinity service is restored. Additionally, many providers offer their own backup plans that provide limited connectivity during outages.
It’s also helpful to have some form of Wi-Fi hotspot or wired connection available if possible. This could include using your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot or plugging into an ethernet cable if available. While these methods will not provide the same speeds or reliability of your Xfinity service, they can still be helpful in keeping you connected during an outage.
By taking proactive steps and having a backup plan in place, you can minimize the disruption caused by an Xfinity outage and ensure that you stay connected even when faced with unexpected network issues.

live in the 33952 ZIP , Port Charlotte Florida. Been without T.V ( occasionally will play one random channel for a bit ) and Internet ( which I would call a flickering connection 2-3minutes max) since the Hurricane Ian. On September 28. This has just been gasoline on a fire as far as trying to recover from this disaster. Business and people think we are lying about why we are unable to connect with them . ?? And fill out and send information to get the help we need to fix the damages from this storm. IT ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT HELP THAT COMCAST/XFINITY IS SAYING THAT THERE ARE NO OUTAGES IN THE 33952 AREA. ALL OF OUR NEIGHBORS ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUES. .

No trucks anywhere. My wire is down from the pole. Reported a week ago or more. No trucks to be scene 33952 or at least nowhere near my neighborhood. Hope they don't plan on charging us for service this month. I call bullshit on their excuses. Has anyone contacted the FTC to turn up the heat? This is ridiculous and if you work from home....becoming very damaging. Get it together Comcrap.

My husband works from home and I have an online business and two Vrbos. My guests want to know what’s going on with the internet in Punta Gorda, and Harbor Heights. We want to know what’s going on with the internet in Peace River Shores. FLORIDA we have heard NOTHING from you on status! I would never disrespect my customers like this.

33993 Cape Coral power has been down for more than two weeks now. I have gotten my power back a week ago since then. Also, a wire connecting the house to the power lines is down but doesn't appear to be damaged.

Be nice to get to at least talk to someone. Just want information on when we might get it back on, or even to let you know that it is out. How do we do that if we can not get ahold of anyone.

I'm in port charlotte 33952 Had water the whole time, have power for almost a week, no internet since 9/28/22 due to Ian. Haven't even seen an xfinity truck anywhere!!! They don't take your calls, instead there is a bot that you cannot get anywhere. We pay good money for Xfinity services and think they should have updated equipment to use in these situations, What is the problem Xfinity??? Can you give us a month or 2 of free services for this inconvenience???

Punta Gorda, 33982. My area has had power since Sunday(almost a week). Poles are up all the way to my community. Why is it taking so long for Xfinity to start working again. My business and my GF depend on wiFi. If it continues much longer I will be check out other options for wiFi

33967 Have power and water, but still no Internet since 9/28. I get that with the hurricane, outages were inevitable, but nor am I at ALL surprised that Internet would be by far the last service to be restored, lol. Call yourselves Xfinity now or even the savior of all mankind if you want. You're still Comcrap to me. Day 9 and counting and I know they're going to fail their estimate of back on by midnight tonight. There had better be a 1/3 reduction in my bill.
