Whether by road, rail, or plane, travels can challenge a family’s patience, sanity, and most definitely their mobile data allotments. XFINITY WiFi Hotspots app to the rescue!
As summer comes to a close for families across the country — including our own — it’s important to reflect on the good, the bad, and the ugly of long summer vacations with kiddos.
If you’re reading this then you probably had a smartphone-free childhood. Although most folks our age (early thirties) enjoyed Walkmans, portable CD players and Game Boys, the kind of portable technology that kept us entertained during summer family trips was pretty lame compared to what most kids have now.
Back in the day, we worried about bringing an extra set of AA batteries, or an album full of CDs. Now, we worry about charging cords, power outlets, battery packs, and the almighty data — whether it be in cellular form or WiFi.
If your family is anything like ours, then you most probably share a cell phone plan which includes a pool of mobile data for all users. During typical, everyday life such data allotment works just fine because all family members spend the majority of their time at home connected to WiFi. But when the traveling begins, well…
Most cellular service providers charge pricey rates for data overages, and even employ different tactics to slow down data speeds or even cut them off. As a result, you’ll either have a heart attack when you receive your bill, or you’ll listen to your data-hungry kids whine for the remainder of the billing period.
Whichever the case, it sucks.
When we’re at home, our XFINITY WiFi service keeps us connected with everything that matters to us. Whether it’s for work, fun, or to stream endless hours of movies, cartoons, and “tv” shows, it keeps us going with reliability and outright speed.
On the road, things used to get tricky and it would cost us big time. But not anymore! Shortly after we became XFINITY WiFi customers, we learned about the XFINITY WiFi Hotspots app. Just like the name implies, it’s an app that delivers the fastest hotspots in the places where we needed them most. It’s like a road map to sanity.
The XFINITY WiFi Hotspots app allowed us to find millions of hotspots around the country, and have a secure, fast, and reliable connection using our very own XFINITY WiFi home login.
Simply download the app from the App Store on iTunes for iOS devices, or the Google Play store for Android. Once installed, login, and quickly find the nearest hotspot. Within minutes, you’ll be able to connect and save on your wireless data by subsidizing your family’s usage.
Think it can’t get any better? Think again! The XFINITY WiFi Hotspots app is free to download, and the service itself is free of cost for XFINITY internet subscribers with speeds of 25 Mbps or higher. Not an XFINITY subscriber yet? No problem! New users will receive two free one-hour sessions. After that, you can choose to subscribe, or sign up for hourly, daily, weekly or monthly XFINITY WiFi services.
Stop paying outrageous data overages, stop telling the kids they have to wait until the next Waffle House to connect to WiFi, and stop losing your sanity. Download the XFINITY WiFi Hotspots app, and get the most out of your internet provider!
