Ratings and Reviews
TWO WEEK NIGHTMARE IN NASHVEGAS
Two stars above in Lou of the last two weeks being the most horrible use of this hotspot finder app especially in Nashville and surrounding suburbs. The app would Constantly ask for password and 90% of the time a dialog box would ask what network I would choose the network that they say is legitimately Xfinity Id Press expanding and a dialog box would drop down saying unable to join Hotspot and occasionally it would hook with him unsecured network such as xfinitywifi or cable wifi. I very much rely heavily on my Xfinity Wi-Fi service since I am in a rideshare program. Therefore since I employee Xfinity to be my Wi-Fi and hotspot provider I will be updating hopefully tomorrow with much positive review. Because I deleted the app reinstalled everything from soup to nuts I assume it's been fixed since an update immediately followed the re installment. I need reliability, period. Respectfully, RSS
Does it really work???? ☹️
If I find a hotspot and I can get it to let me connect it boots me after 5 minutes or less! It always asks for my password! What's with this? I've got The Xfinity security, the app, and 1 time in a month it scrolled a list for me to connect to. Let's see if they really read this! It took 3 yes 3 installs at my home and a month without TV 📺, Phone 📱, and WIFI , And to top it off they lost my old phone number too! At least the company I was with worked. They were slow but worked! My home wifi is the only good thing! Oh 2 year LOCKED IN PRICE YEA RIGHT! ITS INCREASINGLY RAISES EVERY MONTH SINCE MARCH! Until I'm helped and answered my rating stays 1 ⭐️! If I get help and answers I will raise my 1⭐️to what it deserves! Plz watch this post! People do ur homework! They have good home wifi if u stay inside. That's only reason they got 1⭐️! GOD BLESS
Xfinity Hotspots needs a Data Quality Agent
The app is good in that it allows you to find and sign into the rising number of hotspots. The problem is that the wifi connects automatically and to avoid this on an iOS phone or pad, you have to turn off wifi in the main settings area, mark that particular hotspot as "ask to join" and then turn wifi back on.
It connects even if the signal is very weak and/or slow compared to your LTE data.
The app or Apple needs an agent to compare the two data streams and choose the one that is strongest and fastest. Without this, the connect is a real pain in the antenna trying maintain your usage.
