A bit ago Comcast decided that if you use their WiFi modems that they will enable their hotspots through the connection you pay for. If you want to turn this “feature” off, here are the steps you need to follow:
- Log into your Customer Portal as the Primary User
- Click on Users & Preferences
- Under Service Address click on Manage XFINITY WiFi
- In the Pop-Up window click Disable XFINITY WiFi Home Hotspot
- Click Save
The Hotspot is now disabled.
What I would love to see since Comcast is rolling out this Hotspot they should be upgrading their infrastructure to Fiber to Home faster and start to put the bottom line of their customers first.
