"Great monitor for financial managers"

What do you like best?

The xfinity usage meter is a great tool that financial managers like me use to monitor the data usage of individual groups within the firm. It allows us to avoid overages and I can assign access to a financial analyst.

What do you dislike?

The xfinity usage meter is sometimes confusing to use and could use some more support from Xfinity. Otherwise, besides the fact that overages are possible and exist, there's not much more to dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems solved with the xfinity usage meter is the reduction in overages and cost overruns when it comes to data usage due to irresponsible behavior. This allows us to gauge our usage towards the terms of service that Xfinity requires us to follow.

"An overly simple interface leads to a basic, limited value tool"

What do you like best?

When evaluating any tool or resource for my business I consider two basic elements - function (which ultimately leads to the benefit to my business) and simplicity (which translates to ease of use). In this case, this tool is simple to use but as a result, offers a limited functionality and therefore limited benefit. As an example, one of the redeeming qualities of this tool is that it is very easy to access from the main account page. Also, the bar graph feature makes it really simple to gauge your general usage compared to other months. Other than these two items there is not much additional value to this particular tool.

What do you dislike?

Two main frustrations... 1) it only shows you the past 6 months of usage data. It will be more beneficial if it went back 24 months. This would allow me to compare seasonal usage. 2) There is literally no additional information on what is driving the usage. They can tell which device is online and also have a feature that tells me how much each device is currently utilizing the data but the usage meter tool doesn't offer any of that information here. Seems like a big miss to me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No particular recommendation either way for someone considering using this tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"New Xfinity Data User"

What do you like best?

Xfinity usage meter allows you to immediately see how much data your devices require. This allows me to check in on my usage and understand what level of data I require based on when I am working from home. It also helps me to see if I need to increase my data bandwidth for work file downloads.

What do you dislike?

Often times if you check your usage meter before there is enough data it gives you and error that is confusing, but it should simply say there is not yet usage to record. This would make it easier to understand

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The xfinity usage meter helps me to accurately account to our IT team how much data my day to day work requires when I am away from the office. I otherwise would need another service to record my usage.

"Easy Way to Monitor Data Usage"

It is really easy to look at the graphs provided to check for data usage to prevent data overages. The interface is user friendly and it is easy to identify how much allocation you have left for the month.

There is really nothing I dislike, it does seem like a tool that is not needed because it is almost impossible to go over the allocated amount of usage for a given time period.

It prevents extra fees from occurring , prevents us from using too much data, and can save money.

"Fairly Unnecesary, but Glad it Exists"

What do you like best?

It's useful to know where you sit with data usage. Especially knowing there are thresholds that add additional fees.

What do you dislike?

I'm not compelled to use it often. Not because it isn't usable, but because the usage data is really only useful for absurdly large data thresholds that don't really affect most people, myself included.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track of data usage.
