    To help residents and emergency personnel stay connected as post-storm clean-up and power recovery continues, Comcast is opening nearly 127,000 Xfinity WiFi hotspots throughout its New England footprint in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont to anyone who needs them, including non-Xfinity customers, for free.

    Residents across more than 500 New England communities can immediately benefit from Wi-Fi access courtesy of Comcast.

    For a map of the Xfinity WiFi hotspots, which are located primarily throughout busy shopping districts and businesses, residents can visit www.Xfinity.com/wifi. Once in range of a hotspot, they should select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser.

    Xfinity internet customers can sign in with their usernames and passwords, and they 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 two hours through Jan. 8, 2018.
