Disclosure: Post and giveaway sponsored by XFINITY, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.
I've been fascinated by the internet from the first time it was introduced into my life. It was so fun talking with people around the world in chat rooms and checking to see if I had this new thing called "email". These days the internet is so ingrained into our lives that we hardly give it a second thought. That is...until it's running slowly or isn't working altogether. Who can blame us? Slow internet interferes with school, work, and play. I work from home and internet is absolutely vital to the success of my business; I was reminded of this while recently traveling in the Bahamas when I found myself on an island with NO WiFi. Luckily there are services provided by Xfinity to combat dreaded slow internet and keep us moving at the lightning speed of technology.
Sure, it's nice to get away and relax without being constantly tethered...but there's a time and a place for everything! I prefer that it be MY CHOICE when I am offline, not just because I'm at the mercy of a bad WiFi connection.
It's normal these days to have multiple devices connected to our in-home WiFi. I'll often be working on my laptop, checking emails and social media on my phone - all while my family is also checking their emails, doing homework, or streaming television and movies on their computers, tablets and phones.
It's very important that we maintain a high speed and have enough bandwidth to enable us all to accomplish everything we need to get done.
With XFINITY High-Speed Internet, our devices can zip along with the quick speeds that our busy lives require. XFINITY offers plans to meet everyone's needs, whether you're a casual web surfer or a hardcore technology buff - and everyone the middle! Each plan offers the highest quality internet capable of downloading movies or music in minutes as well as streaming without buffering issues. I know I can't be the only one who hates that......buffering.....message. So annoying!
Even during peak hours, you can expect 100% of the speed you're signed up for in every room, across all of your devices, all the time! Remember

There are other amazing features provided by XFINITY too. Constant Guard is a security suite that keeps your online activity secured against identity theft, viruses, and more through Norton Security. I enjoy shopping online, banking, and other activities that include sensitive information that I want to make sure is safeguarded and I appreciate Constant Guard keeping watch. XFINITY also provides millions of hotspots to their internet customers. This is a fantastic service that allows me to sign into my account with my Comcast username and password to access hotspots wherever available rather than using my cell provider's data and adding to my bill. Find hotspots near you by searching your address at http://wifi.comcast.com/ or downloading the XFINITY WiFi app.
