Is Comcast’s email service worth the buck?
After initially establishing itself as a cable distribution company in the 60s in Mississippi, Comcast has come a long way since then and is today headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Comcast is facing competition from the likes of Gmail, Hotmail, and others.
Gmail is most commonly used as it provides a host of digital solutions and a possible operating system (hence a fully digital and software ecosystem).
Comcast rebranded its internet and email services as Xfinity and promised to give customers a top-class experience.
It recently experienced security lapses and issues (with hackers from countries like Chile and Ecuador fooling Comcast users). Some Xfinity accounts were hacked.
Another issue is that the user base of Xfinity base is the loyal users of Comcast and Xfinity who have been using its services for more than a decade.
Comcast is upgrading its email services and is also upgrading the internet services it offers.
