Comcast today announced the results of a new Xfinity survey that confirms just how much consumers dread not having Internet service when moving into a new home.
Nearly a third (31%) of adults, who are likely to move in the next year, say it would be more difficult to live without Internet for two days after a move than to live without water (69%).
The survey also found that moving is one of life’s most stressful events (39%), scoring higher than finding and adjusting to a new job (23%), creating a household or personal budget (15%), and even filing taxes (12%).
According to recent data, approximately 40 million people in the U.S. are expected to move this year, with a majority of activity taking place over the summer months.
There are countless details to address during a move, and scheduling the transfer of TV or Internet services takes 21 minutes on average according to the survey. The new ‘Move in a Minute’ experience from Xfinity reduces that time frame by 95%, with the ability to schedule whenever and from wherever customers choose.
To jump-start a move, customers can simply log-in to Xfinity, register their move date and new address, and select a time and day for their installation. X1 customers can also simply say, “Move with Xfinity” directly into their voice remote to get the ball rolling.
