As part of the rather creatively-named CableWiFi initiative, the majority of major cable broadband customers are now allowed to access the Wi-Fi hotspots on most other cable operators. Those hotspots, of which there are now around 200,000 nationwide, are available for free to users to subscribe to existing cable services. There have been some cooperative stragglers in cooperation; for example despite saying they were part of the intitiative back in 2012, Cox and Bright House have only just now announced that they've finally enabled access to one anothers hotspots, providing users in Orlando, Tampa, Daytona, Northern Virginia, Connecticut and Indiana with some additional connectivity options.
