For Xfinity customers it's free. Others have to pay.
No. They are opening up the hotspots for everyone as it clearly says if you read it.

So after they get rid of data caps for 60 days, and the network doesn't collapse like they promised data caps are necessary to prevent, and the coronavirus is worse, what will be their excuse for bringing the data caps back?

Fk comcast. Thumbs down because its comcast... shady data caps... psst.
There's nothing comparably fast for many people. What's crazy is I'm one of them and I live in downtown Santa Rosa, CA. The only alternative is 15 mbps DSL.

That is what they said, however I just tried to use several and was unable without paying or signing in with a comcast account. Does anyone know how to actually activate these "benefits" as their use meter still shows a data cap and their wifi still charges for access?

With 5G rolling out and satellite internet coming in a few years, I think that will finally bring come serious competition to the field.
