To help first responders and the community stay connected, Xfinity is opening up Xfinity WiFi hotspots to the public until noon on Monday, September 17.
Nearly 7,000 Xfinity WiFi hotspots now activated in Charleston, Savannah, and Augusta
Comcast has opened nearly 7,000 Xfinity WiFi hotspots in Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., and Augusta, Ga., ahead of Hurricane Florence. The hotspots will help residents and emergency personnel stay connected as the weather event makes its anticipated landfall later this week. The hotspots will be available to anyone who needs them, including non-Xfinity customers, for free.
Specifically, Comcast has opened over 3,200 hotspots in Savannah; 2,100 in Charleston; and 1,600 in Augusta. The hotspots will remain open until Monday, September 17 at noon EDT.
For a map of the Xfinity WiFi hotspots, residents can visit www.Xfinity.com/wifi and enter their zip code. 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 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 while the hotspots are available.
We hope that you and your loved ones remain safe during this period of severe weather. To help our first responders and the community stay connected, we’re opening up Xfinity WiFi hotspots to the public in Charleston, SC and Savannah, and Augusta, GA until noon on Monday, September 17.
