Comcast switches on free public Wi-Fi system for NFL Draft weekend

Comcast switches on free public Wi-Fi system for NFL Draft weekend


As Nashville prepares to host thousands of pro football fans this weekend, Comcast announced today it will offer free public Wi-Fi beginning at 3 p.m. CST Wednesday, April 24 and extending through Monday, April 29.

Comcast will open nearly 2,000 Xfinity WiFi hotspots throughout several popular areas and iconic landmarks in Nashville such as Nissan Stadium, Cumberland Park, Broadway, Riverfront Park, Music Row, Centennial Park, the Gulch and Bicentennial Mall.

“With tens of thousands of football fans preparing to visit Nashville, we’re ready to welcome them with a first-class Wi-Fi experience at some of the city’s busiest areas and venues,” said Comcast Regional SVP Doug Guthrie. “By activating our Xfinity WiFi network, we’re happy to connect those who visit high-traffic areas of Nashville during this exciting weekend.”

For a map of the Xfinity WiFi hotspots, residents can visit and enter their zip code. Once in range of a hotspot, they should select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser. Xfinity internet customers can sign in with their usernames and passwords, and will be connected to Xfinity WiFi hotspots in the future.

Non-Xfinity internet subscribers should visit the “Not an Xfinity Internet Customer” section on the sign-in page to get started. Non-customers will be able to renew their complimentary sessions every two hours during the week of April 24-29.

Nationwide, Xfinity Internet customers have access to more than 19 million Wi-Fi hotspots.
