507 222 November 3, 2017 at 07:19 AM
Daughter just moved out, does not need cable, or phone service. Needs wifi connection, for cell phones so they dont use all their data. What best and least expensive options out there? Can she sign into my xfinity and use that??

Any reviews on Freedompop hotspot?

Yes, that is the best option if she can see an "xfinity wifi" network on her devices.

How much data does she use on her phone each month? She should pick a cell phone plan that provides enough data, limit her usage, or utilize safe public wifi hotspots at places like Starbucks/McDonalds/library/school/work/etc. Straight Talk allows up to 10GB per month at 4G speeds for $45.

If she's a community college student, she might qualify for Comcast's Internet Essentials [xfinity.com] plan which is $10/mo.

I'm currently paying $30/mo including taxes/fees for 25/5 Internet with Comcast. Call them a few times and ask what promotions you qualify for.
