I too came from Verizon using very little data. So far I have not noticed any network issues moving from one provider to another that points to some major underlying problem. I did have one single short code SMS not come through and of course several institutions have measures in place that notice a provider change and you have to go through reverification measures for 2 factor etc... However I have only been using Xfinity mobile for a very short time. I have stayed local for the most part and look forward to multi-state trips to fully prove out the move. I am happy with the move but as always time will tell.

We have had both Verizon and Xfinity Mobile for a couple of months, coverage has been the same between the two phones as I had expected. Prior to that we were on T-Mobile and Google Fi (which runs on the T-Mobile network in my area), and I must say T-Mobile has come a long way over the last few years - despite the much touted Verizon coverage, I am finding out dead zones for Verizon that worked fine when I was on T-Mobile, but of course there were also dead zones for T-Mobile that now have coverage by Verizon.
I have a scheduled date to change from Verizon to Xfinity verfizon in a few days and have been trying deaperatly to see the comparisons. I don't know how it all works I just want it to work as good as Verizon.
I was with Verizon for three years before moving to Xfinity. I haven't noticed any differences at all in service. One thing that I do know will come up is we go to Canada a few times a year, and Verizon's agreement with the Canadian providers is better than Xfinity's. But as for day-to-day coverage at home, no difference. And we're paying the same amount on Xfinity with installment payments for two new phones as we were on Verizon for just the plan alone.
moving to new thread.

I can confirm that 1X roaming on Xfinity is FAR different than 1X roaming on Verizon... 1X on Xfintiy does not support calls, text, or data, while 1X on Verizon supports (albeit slow) calls, text, and data. This is on iPhone 8 bought from Xfinity.
"In terms of coverage, Xfinity advertises the same coverage map as Verizon, but Xfinity probably doesn't have the same roaming agreements in place with third parties as Verizon. Evidence of this is that they use a different PRL (Preferred Roaming List) file than Verizon."
