Have xfinity a bundle. Have really fast internet. Not sure of the price think it's around 40.00. Tv is much more.

A Google Mesh is a system to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi to cover your whole house with no dead spots. If you think of a window screen that covers the entire opening of your window, it's that kind of coverage (only in 3D for multiple floors). We have a 3 story house with over 4,500 sq ft and 3 units (plus the router) does the job (about a $300 one time cost). Since I use a Smart TV that uses Wi-Fi it covers that too (no more buffering). IN fact we have 4 smartphones, 6 tablets, 8 computers / laptops, a Ring device on the front door, a few Echo devices often all running at the same time.

I would only consider that, if I had the logon (and permission) to my neighbors Google mesh.. but then it would not be stealing, would it?

Used to do it all the time until you needed a password to connect and then I was out of luck.

What bundle does Comcast/Xfinity offer at $40? I just got my new bill- for triple play-$216 and change. Supposed to be 100 Mbps but I never get on 50 download and 5 upload. Now starting to have problems with internet and phone dropping but that's probably because of everyone being home.

I had the same problem until we switched to Frontier. You can't get higher than 5 upload unless you have Fibre (which Comcast does not have).
