Comcast launching neighborhood WiFi hotspot initiative

comcast logoComcast is launching a neighborhood WiFi hotspot initiative which gives Xfinity Internet customers an additional SSID in their home to share with friends and guests. The added WiFi network, what Comcast refers to as a “xfinitywifi” signal, will let existing Xfinity Internet customers log-in to the network with their username and password. This means more WiFi access areas to stream audio & video, Facetime, network gaming, and other WiFi-dependent activities if you’re a Comcast customer. The “xfinitywifi” signal is separate from your secured WiFi signal, which would require your chosen password to access. Comcast says tests in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Northern Virginia and the Greater Washington, D.C. metro area already proved successful, providing over 100,000 Xfinity Internet subscribers access to the neighborhood WiFi signals.

Comcast is already part of the CableWiFi Alliance that announced today over 150,000 combined hotspots. That partnership includes Bright House, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox, and Time Warner Cable.
