Will my Internet slow down when someone connects to my XFINITY WiFi network? The broadband connection to your home will be unaffected by the XFINITY WiFi feature. Your in-home WiFi network, as well as XFINITY WiFi, use shared spectrum, and as with any shared medium there can be some impact as more devices share WiFi. We have provisioned the XFINITY WiFi feature to support robust usage, and therefore, we anticipate minimal impact to the in-home WiFi network
Translation, the up to five foreign users are going to eat ithe shared spectrum in addition to my own machines. Since my video streaming usage is already marginal, I don't know if this will drop my performance.
Anyone else have thoughts on this?
