Comcast has increased the number of free Xfinity WiFi hotspots from 7,000 to 12,000 to help residents and emergency personnel stay connected during the time of crisis cause by the Kincade Fire. These hotspots are available to everyone, including non-Xfinity customers.
The cities added to the list of free WiFi hotspots include Petaluma, San Rafael, Marin, Napa, the City of Sonoma and Santa Rosa. This is in addition to the locations that were previously available in Napa and Sonoma Counties.
For a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots, which are located at small businesses and in outdoor locations such as shopping districts and parks, please visit www.xfinity.com/wifi.
Once at 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 username and password, and they will be automatically connected at 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.
If you are prompted for a password or other login credentials, then you are attempting to access an Xfinity WiFi hotspot that is located in a home, not in a business or outdoor location.
This hotspot is not a part of the free Xfinity WiFi access program.
