Comcast opens thousands of Xfinity WiFi hotspots in Frederick during storm recovery
FREDERICK, Md. (ABC7) —
As Frederick County recovers from this week's storms and the historic flooding that followed, Comcast is working to make things a little easier on the people living there.
The cable and internet company has opened thousands of Xfinity WiFi hotspots to anyone who needs them in the area, including non-customers.
Comcast says the hotspots are open now until Friday, May 25, across the entire county.
Read Comcast's tips on how to connect to the hotspots below:
"Once at a hotspot select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser. Xfinity Internet customers can sign in with their username and password, and will be automatically connected to Xfinity WiFi hotspots in the future. Non-XFINITY Internet subscribers should 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 2 hours through next Friday, May 25.
We also encourage our Xfinity customers to download and use the Xfinity My Account app or online portal at www.xfinity.com/MyAccount to stay-up-to-date on their services."
