Comcast said it is opening up Xfinity WiFi hotspots in Northern California to all-comers through this Friday (Oct. 13) to help residents and personnel stay connected amid wildfires in the region.

Ungated access throughout the Napa and Sonoma County areas is available on access points with the “xfinitywifi” SSID. Comcast internet subs can sign on with their regular credentials and stay connected on various hotspots.

Non-subs will need to pick the “xfinitywifi” network name from the list of available hotspots, launch a browser, and locate the “Not an XFINITY Internet Customer” section on the sign-in page to get started.
