Comcast is now rolling out their Xfinity Wifi Hotspots — a feature that turns home users’ own Comcast-supplied routers into public hotspots. The process has already started in the Midwest and East Coast features, but other regions are sure to follow shortly.
PCWorld has an article detailing the service and what you can do to turn it off, if you have an affected router. If you have Comcast internet, I highly recommend giving it a read since Comcast is not notifying customers of the changes being made in their customer’s devices.
If you are a local Comcast customer in the Shreveport-Bossier area, and would like help setting up your own 3rd-party router, don’t hesitate to give me a call, text, or email, or post a comment.
