Comcast Corporation has announced the launch of Xfinity WiFi in Philadelphia, parts of New Jersey and in northern Delaware.
“With the explosion of wireless Internet devices, new platforms and apps, consumers are increasingly looking to enjoy entertainment and communications on the go,” said Cathy Avgiris, SVP/GM of Communications and Data Services for Comcast Cable, in a statement. “We offer some of the fastest Internet speeds in the home and, by offering Xfinity WiFi, we’re also providing a fast wireless Internet experience for our customers when they are outside the home.”
Xfinity WiFi hotspots have been launched throughout the greater Philadelphia area and its suburbs, in New Jersey towns from Union to Cape May and in northern Delaware. Hotspots are located in areas where customers spend time working, commuting, relaxing, shopping and socializing and include: SEPTA’s Suburban and Market East Stations, the train platforms along the Paoli/Lansdale Line (formerly R5) and the Manayunk/Norristown Line (formerly R6), the Wells Fargo Center and the South Street shopping district, to name just a few. Hotspots are also located in the suburbs of Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester Counties.
In New Jersey, Xfinity WiFi hotspots are located in places including: Berkeley Heights, Livingston, Long Branch, Montclair, New Brunswick, Perth Amboy, Red Bank, Rumson, Summit and Trenton, as well as numerous shore towns. WiFi access has been available to N.J. Transit passengers in northern New Jersey since a trial started more than a year ago. Additional hotspots have also launched in and around Wilmington, Delaware.
This announcement expands on the number of hotspots Xfinity Internet customers can access. Earlier this year, Comcast announced a roaming agreement with Cablevision and Time Warner Cable, whereby Xfinity Internet customers can also enjoy thousands of Xfinity WiFi hotspots in the Greater New York Tri-State area, also for no additional fee.
