Xfinity Wifi hotspot

Thanks to Xfinity Wifi Hotspots, there is Wifi available at the Commuter Rail Platform in Framingham and Natick. If you have Comcast as your home internet provider, you can tap into the open Wifi networks that is available near these stations. The signal strength is very strong when standing on the platform.

You should use the WiFi access instead of the cellular access so that you don't have to use any of your minutes while waiting for a train. When you set this up on the phone, it will automatically connect to the Xfinity Wifi hotspot when you arrive at the station. You only need to set this up once to get connected.

Easy instructions to connect to the WiFi via iPhone:

  • Go to Settings
  • Click on Wi-Fi
  • Select the XFINITY WiFi Network (the SSID is xfinitywifi)
  • Click the 'Home' button.
  • Launch a Browser
  • Simply log in using your Comcast ID and password
  • Start browsing the web.

Comcast is currently advertising that there are hundreds of hotspots around in New England. There are hotspots on Cape Cod and the Islands, in all over a million hotspots in the United States. All of these hotspots are free to use for any Comcast subscriber.
