Comcast has opened Xfinity WiFi hotspots to anyone who needs them for free – including non-Xfinity Internet subscribers.  

Important highlights direct from Comcast include:

  1. Xfinity WiFi hotspots across the country will be available to anyone who needs them for free – including non-Xfinity Internet subscribers. For a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots, visit www.xfinity.com/wifi. Once at a hotspot, consumers should select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser. 
  2. Comcast is offering Internet Essentials to qualified low-income households, who currently lack broadband at home, free for 60 days.   This broadband service will include a modem and wifi router mailed to customers’ homes as a self-install kit. There will be no shipping and handling fees, no credit check and no installation fees.   To sign up, applicants can simply visit www.internetessentials.com.
  3. No Disconnects or Late Fees: Comcast will not disconnect a customer’s internet service or assess late fees if they contact Comcast and let them know that they can’t pay their bills during this period.
