Comcast Reveals Millions of Xfinity WiFi Hotspots

Comcast Reveals Millions of Xfinity WiFi Hotspots
 
 

The company known as Comcast has been expanding its Xfinity Wi-Fi network since the past few years or so. It recently decided to broaden this facility even more by introducing a spanking new neighborhood program.

Now subscribers to Comcast will be able to gain total access to the World Wide Web outside their home environments. Since the last couple of years, it had been busy constructing a Wi-Fi network that included in its purview train stations, bistros and parks. The good thing was that the facility was available at no extra financial burden for its customers. As to the further sprawl of its network, Comcast will make an important announcement today. The highlight of this event will be the neighborhood initiative. This is in a category of its own. Users will relay information regarding certain hot spots in their vicinity to other subscribers who will then get to use the facility thereby expanding an ever-increasing set of connections.

The service is in contrast to the home service. There is of course a catch to all this free usage of a public utility. Consumers will have to have an Xfinity Broadband connection. Otherwise they will have to pay for the rest of the online activity after the first two trials. Comcast began road-testing Xfinity about a year ago in the East Coast of the United States. Currently, the facility has over 100,000 users. The members of the special service have a right to back out of the deal whenever they want to.

The service bears an uncanny resemblance to FON, another enterprise which began six years ago and was initiated by a Spanish company. As for Comcast, it has extended its hot spots to include scads of other nuclei of hope. It is now the largest service of its kind in the United States. Having trebled in its volume, Comcast includes under its aegis some of the major cities of America such as New York, Chicago and Washington. The basic amenity this network affords other people is the ability to connect anywhere anytime with anyone.

This is a marvelous facility indeed. The extension of the Internet and its related electronic devices such as tablets and mobile phones has become so complex today that there seem no end to the ramifications of these devices and services. Computers and the digital revolution have opened up a virtual Pandora’s Box that spells both delights and dangers for the future. But then with every invention or discovery there come some side effects that have to be dealt with.
