No Roaming Yet

According to their FAQ, they are not supporting roaming yet. I guess they have figure out how to integrate with the CableWiFi consortium. For Connecticut at least, it would allow movement between Cox territory and Cablevision territory. Cablevision though has a heck of a lot more hotspots installed than just about any other carrier, and with a smaller service area.

CableWifi uses a company called NNU.com You can see on their page that they proudly promote those brands as customers and TWC has been with them for years.

I'm wondering.....

Are they going to have to serve themselves with 6 strike notices and possibly shut down their free service when people take advantage of them by downloading stuff they don't want to at home??

hhmmmm............

Re: I'm wondering.....

More than likely you will be required to login the same as the other companies, hence why it isn't free to everyone.

Caps?

Wonder if this counts against your caps on your account? I'm going to guess that answer to be yes.

Also I can see it now...the rogue access points setup as CoxWifi SSIDs with the fake signup pages just go snag peoples ID and password.
