The new XFINITY Store in Katy at 517 South Mason Rd is conveniently located and features 55” flat screen TVs and a comfortable seating area. Customers also can try out some of Comcast’s converged services and popular apps on iPad’s, like the XFINITY TV app. Kiosks around the store also provide customers with the opportunity to experience XFINITY TV, test drive XFINITY Internet’s speeds, connect with XFINITY Voice service, and try out next generation XFINITY Home Security.
In addition, customers receive personalized service from trained and knowledgeable Comcast Service Consultants and more time-saving offerings, including a self-service kiosk for quick bill pay and a queue system that allows customers to explore and be entertained instead of waiting in line for service.
