Comcast offers free access to WiFi in Ocean City

If you’re worried about being out of touch while in Ocean City this summer, Comcast wants to ease your mind.

Beginning today, visitors and residents can access free WiFi service from Xfinity on smartphones, tablets and other devices at points along the boardwalk and beyond. You don’t have to be a Comcast subscriber to tap into the hotspots, which will be available to non-customers at no charge through July 4.

A map of hotspots on the cable company’s website, showed generous coverage of Ocean City’s south end. On the north end, hotspots were located near Northside Park and at 144th Street, just south of the Delaware state line. For a list of hotspots, go to http://www.Xfinity.com/wifi

To use the free WiFi, follow these directions from Comcast:

-Search for the “xfinitywifi” network name
-Click on the “Not an XFINITY Internet customer?” link on the right side of the sign-in page
-Choose the “Summer Promotion” option from the drop down list.
