So bad not Worth the hassle or trouble installing
This app is poorly designed and really is no good it states that you can use Wi-Fi anywhere but all it does is give you locations where businesses that use Comcast WiFi,Business account so they can introduce you to their businesses. Then tell businesses by buying their Internet It would send customer there way. I thought it was to search for Wi-Fi in the area and be able to use your Xfinity account to log into any Wi-Fi any where any time as there commercial says even in the areas outdoors in the middle of nowhere. That is so false. As you will notice you will only find businesses that have Wi-Fi Business accounts and you must go in them to use it. By this Comcast can tell them just by them purchasing their Internet service will bring them more Business. The fact that they also limit Internet usage and now most cell phone companies are offering unlimited data usage which Comcast now restrict your data usage. I'm about to get rid of Comcast go to unlimited data provider and use my tablet to watch TV because every Worth watching Channel has a app now a days. Comcast I hope you lose all your customers for trying to be greedy and limit data an charges Comcast residential customers more.
What's the point?
I installed the app, only to find "This service is not available for the current tier of service". I have been at a business before, where there was business account usage for customers, yet Xfinity told me I would not have access and gave me the same message. I need to pay more in order to use the "free" hotspots that businesses pay for.
But what concerns me even more, and I can't even use the App to verify, someone is able to just drive by my house and tap into my wifi, and use up my limited bandwidth for free??? Now that Xfinity is capping data usage, and charging an arm and a leg for overages, am I paying someone else's data usage now? Ever since I was notified by Xfinity of their intend to charge me extra for overages, I have been tracking and limiting data use. But instead of it going down, it has been steadily increasing.
Is this a scam?
It took a while
I did not even know xfinity Wi-Fi is available to customers whenever in range. Then I had to go on-line to learn how to use xfinity secure WiFi when I am in range of a hot spot. But, once I had submitted my information, I have been able to get on-line various places. So far, I just check to see if there is an xfinity Wi-Fi connection in range wherever I am, and my phone hops right on. This app. Gives me an idea of hot spots near me, but they do not do me much good unless I were to walk or drive to one nearby. I like that xfinity makes a secure connection available to customers. Coverage is far from universal.
