To help residents and emergency personnel stay connected after this week's nor'easter, Comcast has opened up access to hundreds of Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots across the Philadelphia region to anyone who needs them, including non-Xfinity customers, for free.
People in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware can immediately benefit from Wi-Fi access courtesy of Comcast, the parent company of NBC Universal and NBC10.
