Comcast has opened up Wi-Fi hotspots for both customers and non-customers during the winter storm.
“Comcast owns and operates thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots in greater Philadelphia and New Jersey,” a spokesperson wrote in a released statement. “To help residents and emergency personnel stay connected during the storm, Comcast is opening its XFINITY Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the region to anyone who needs them – including non-XFINITY Internet customers.”
Once you’re at a hotspot, select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch the browser.
XFINITY Internet Customers: Sign in with your username and password and you will be automatically connected at XFINITY Wi-Fi hotspots in the future.
NON-XFINITY Internet Customers: 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 until Monday.
Comcast is the parent company of NBC10.
