Comcast is opening more than 137,000 Xfinity WiFi hotspots to help residents and emergency personnel stay connected throughout Florida to anyone who needs them, including non-Xfinity customers, for free.

Once in range of a hotspot, 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 2 hours through September 15, 2017.
