Using a Comcast or Xfinity hotspot is easy to do. If you’re on a cell phone, just download the Xfinity WiFi Hotspots app and follow the instructions in the app. If you’re on a laptop, then you’ll need to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot and sign in using Xfinity ID and password.
Most Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots are only available to Xfinity Internet and Xfinity Mobile customers (Comcast customers may also be eligible, since it owns Xfinity). However, there are certain “featured hotspots” that are free to all users.

Before we dive deeper, let’s make sure we’re on the same page. What do we mean when we say Xfinity hotspots?
Well, there are actually two kinds. There are Wi-Fi hotspots, which Xfinity has set up all across the country at coffee shops, airports, parks, and other frequented public spaces. These hotspots allow people to access a high-speed internet network with their phone, computer, or other Wi-Fi enabled device.
The other kind of Xfinity hotspot would be the kind that you create with your own smartphone using the Xfinity Mobile cell phone service. We’ll talk about that kind of network at the end of this article.
