Comcast Expands East Coast Wi-Fi
2,500 New Hotspots in Mass. and New Hampshire
Comcast says the cable giant is expanding the number of free Wi-Fi hotspots available to the company's east coast customers. According to Comcast, they've activated 2,500 additional hotspots
throughout eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire in locations Comcast found to be the highest-traffic regions. Comcast followed on the heels of Cablevision in 2010 and began offering free Wi-Fi to customers in the hopes of offering a little something extra to users in their battle against Verizon FiOS. Comcast customers can sign in wherever they see the "Xfinity WiFi" SSID.
