What is the Seasonal Convenience Plan?

  • Keep your Xfinity equipment in your home
  • Keep your home phone number
  • Keep your Comcast.net email address and access it anywhere with an email only Internet connection or upgrade to the Seasonal Internet Access connection to enable you to control home smart devices remotely.
  • No changes of service can take place while your account is enrolled in the Seasonal Convenience Plan
