Free hotspots from terrestrial ISP

I thought this might be useful to some:

 

Xfinity (Comcast), a terrestrial internet service provider, has opened up free hotspots all over the country, and they are available to everyone, including non-subscribers, for free.  Check the two links below. The first one gives information, and the second one allows you to check for hotspots in your zip code.

https://wifi.xfinity.com/

Are these Hotspots like public WIFI?

I haven't  used them yet, so I don't know. I would treat them as such, would keep my antivirus updated, etc.  

 

Reg, here's what Xfinity has about their hotspots:  https://www.xfinity.com/mobile/support/article/xfinity-wifi-protected

I usually check my parent's email in the morning. They have Xfinity.

 

Surprise! Can't get to it today. Route is end-to-end Level3, which dies somewhere in Philadelphia.

 

No one can tell me this isn't a nationwide CenturyLink issue.

Xfinity is having its own issues -- the intertubes are sticky for them too.  Hopefully someone, somewhere, will muck out CL.

Re: Free hotspots from terrestrial ISP

Just tried both your links regarding free hotspots...neither of them will load...I think they call that "irony".

They both work for me. I think they call that "you're having problems with your connection."
