Ratings and Reviews
Provides a great convenience with WiFi access when I’m away from my home WiFi. Still, though, it’s balky:
Case 1: my iPhone WiFi locks on to some Xfinity network without gaining me WiFi access, nor releasing the WiFi receiver to access other in-range familiar networks.
Case 2: I walk out of range of an Xfinity network but — between iOS & Xfinity — the iPhone receiver is bound & determined to not give up on that network in favor of some stronger signal.
I also wish xfinity had a better network naming convention so it would be clear which networks were public access & which weren’t, w/o me manually having to make the iPhone try each xfinity network in sequence.
Less than one star
I'm all in when it comes to Xfinity. I've been with them for over 10 yrs as well as referred several+ people to switch/or become a customer of Xfinity/Comcast. This app "Hotspots" is the one thing that I just don't get what the problem is
After the last couple days of literally driving from place to place EXACT locations..I can't get anything/any connection. I've been doing this for the last year or so & realized finally today it's not me or my device/s(thinking it was an iPhone thing?) It's the app is this normal? As in FAKE?..Im truly asking b/c I have spent an incredible amount of time driving from 500 ft away to the next town over. Even the library today. Yesterday I drove to each place in my area all 3 & nothing...except a private residence that it said to pull over & walk 150 ft. There's a huge electric gate? How does this work? U contract with them who have accts w/ u & then allow "us" YOUR customers who pay to have access to "millions" of hotspots...but all I get is unable to connect to xfinitywifi" even a yr & a half it was a tiny bit better took forever but every 1/10 would get 2/3 bars/signal strength. What's going on? If there's a way to fix this or give me advice please let me know. I'm not trying to give a bad review but I'm having a "bad" experience. If this app is just a scam pls let me know..only for the sole purpose..so I can stop trying & wasting A LOT of time energy & gas. Thank u very much.
TWO WEEK NIGHTMARE IN NASHVEGAS
Two stars above in Lou of the last two weeks being the most horrible use of this hotspot finder app especially in Nashville and surrounding suburbs. The app would Constantly ask for password and 90% of the time a dialog box would ask what network I would choose the network that they say is legitimately Xfinity Id Press expanding and a dialog box would drop down saying unable to join Hotspot and occasionally it would hook with him unsecured network such as xfinitywifi or cable wifi. I very much rely heavily on my Xfinity Wi-Fi service since I am in a rideshare program. Therefore since I employee Xfinity to be my Wi-Fi and hotspot provider I will be updating hopefully tomorrow with much positive review. Because I deleted the app reinstalled everything from soup to nuts I assume it's been fixed since an update immediately followed the re installment. I need reliability, period. Respectfully, RSS
