WiFi HotSpots


1. Visit xfinity.com/wifi to see a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots. Open hotspots, both indoor and outdoor, will be displayed on the map in a blue color. Once at a hotspot, customers and non-customers should select xfinitywifi from the list of available WiFi networks, and then launch a browser. (please note that it must be 'xfinitywifi' all small letters, any other xfinity wifi will take you to one that requires a login)
