Comcast deploys one million Wi-Fi hotspots

Comcast today announced it has surpassed one million Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation.

The company’s Xfinity WiFi network, the largest in the US, allows customers to connect more devices and do more online, in more places and at any time.

“We want our customers to have Wi-Fi access to the Internet, wherever they are,” said Marcien Jenckes, executive vice president of Consumer Services for Comcast Cable.
“Speed, reliability and accessibility on any device, are all important to our customers and we are committed to grow our hotspots to keep ahead of the rise in user demand,” added Jenckes

The Xfinity WiFi network deploys hotspots at different locations be it outdoor, business and neighorhood

Comcast has placed outdoor hotspots in public locations across the country, ranging from shopping centers and commuter stations to parks, sporting venues, beaches and boardwalks. Cities include San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington and Atlanta as well as areas of New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.

Most Comcast Business Internet customers are eligible to receive an Xfinity WiFi hotspot for no additional charge when they order service. This is a value-added feature that directly improves their patrons’ experience. Examples include restaurants, cafes and bakeries, retail establishments and office waiting rooms.

Recently, Comcast began providing residential customers with Xfinity wireless gateways the ability to have a second “xfinitywifi” signal (or SSID) in their home that is separate and distinct from their private and secure home Wi-Fi signal. This additional access point provides Xfinity Internet subscribers with a Wi-Fi signal without the need to share a homeowner’s private network password.

Comcast Cable is the nation’s largest video, high-speed Internet and phone provider to residential customers under the XFINITY brand and also provides these services to businesses. Comcast has invested in technology to build an advanced network that delivers among the fastest broadband speeds and brings customers personalized video, communications and home management offerings.
