Spectrum and Xfinity wifi hotspots are free for everyone in preparation for Hurricane Irma
Charter Communications announced today that it is opening its Spectrum wifi hotspots for free to non-customers to increase internet access and aid communication across Florida during Hurricane Irma.
Spectrum has more than 32,000 wifi access points across the state, Charter spokesman Joseph Durkin said.
Those who are looking to connect to the internet through a Spectrum hotspot should pull up the available networks on their device. If there's a Spectrum hotspot available within range, it will be listed as "Spectrum WiFi," Durkin said.
If you want to check if there's a hotspot near you, you can also view Spectrum's coverage map at https://www.spectrum.com/wifi-map-iframe.html and enter any address to search.
Spectrum's move follows Comcast announcing this week that it was making its Xfinity wifi hotspots free and open to non customers in preparation of Irma as well.
