Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA) is continuing to expand its public Wi-Fi footprint in Indiana. The telecommunications provider says it has installed nearly 150 outdoor hotspots in Bloomington. The announcement follows similar projects earlier this year in five other Hoosier cities
Hundreds of hotspots were installed in Lafayette, West Lafayette, Frankfort and Crawfordsville in July and free access was extended to communities including Kokomo for two weeks during damaging storms that swept through the state’s midsection in August.
Comcast says more XFINITY Wi-Fi outdoor hotspots will be installed in additional locations later this year. Comcast Indiana Senior Vice President Tim Collins says "these outdoor hotspots not only serve as a convenience to our customers, but they also can help the community at large during an emergency or crisis."
Most existing Comcast customers can access the service for free and non-customers will even have limited access in Bloomington.
