To help residents and emergency personnel in Hurricane Lee’s potential path stay connected ahead of the storm, Comcast has opened 8,500 public Xfinity WiFi hotspots in areas it serves across Cape Cod and the Islands on the Massachusetts coastline, as well as Maine for anyone to use – including non-Xfinity customers – for free.
How to Get Connected
For a map of public Xfinity WiFi hotspots, which are located both indoors and outdoors in places such as shopping districts, parks and businesses, visit https://finder.wifi.xfinity.com/.
When a hotspot is within range, select the “xfinitywifi” network on a device’s list of available networks and launch a browser. Sign-in options will appear for both Xfinity customers and non-customers.
Xfinity Internet customers can sign in with their account credentials and they will be automatically connected to Xfinity WiFi hotspots in their range in the future. Alternatively, they can download the Xfinity WiFi Hotspots app and sign in with their account credentials.
Non-Xfinity Internet customers need to look for the “Get Connected” section and agree to the Terms and Conditions to be connected. Non-customers will be able to renew their complimentary sessions every 2 hours.
