In light of the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy, Comcast's Wi-Fi hotspots will be unlocked. Americans will be able to freely access the internet in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Virginia, West Virginia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine.
This gratuitous network addresses the troubling collapse of broadband systems in the aforementioned regions. The undoing of Comcast's paywalls will allow citizens to continue on with their busy lives, and will moreover ensure their virtual connection with loved ones throughout the world.
Two-hour periods of free access can be perpetually renewed. Xfinity's maps highlight the online zones that will be available until November 7th.
This rapid response to the environmental catastrophe contributes to a growing cadre of socially responsible American businesses. Comcast is taking responsibility for the welfare of its fellow citizens, whether they are paying customers or not.
