What exactly is Comcast Wireless service?
The wireless service from Comcast is a cluster of hotspots that deliver internet connectivity at Wi-Fi speeds, across the city. The service is an exclusive offering to Comcast customers, who are subscribed to Comcast’s Wi-Fi services, which comes as a part of the Performance tier plan or above. People who are not subscribed to Comcast can also access the wireless internet service by purchasing a wireless access pass. The passes come with varying validity periods that range up to an hour, a day and a week. People can then choose a pass depending up on their requirements and get connected instantly through wireless hotspots.
