Comcast opens over 53K WiFi Hotspots during Hurricane Harvey
To help residents and emergency personnel stay connected during the wrath of Hurricane Harvey, Comcast announced they are opening its more than 53,000 XFINITY WiFi hotspots throughout the Greater Houston area to anyone who needs them – including non-XFINITY customers.
For a map of XFINITY WiFi hotspots, which are located both indoors and outdoors in places such as shopping districts, parks and businesses, please visit www.xfinity.com/wifi.
Once at a hotspot select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser.
XFINITY Internet customers can sign in with their username and password, and they will be automatically connected at XFINITY WiFi hotspots in the future. Non-XFINITY Internet subscribers should visit the “Not an XFINITY Internet Customer” section on the sign in page to get started. Non-customers will be able to renew their complimentary sessions every two hours through Wednesday, August 30.
