Nationwide Rollout Gives Residents Connectivity Without Service Appointments via Preinstalled Wireless Gateways

Comcast´s Xfinity Communities has continued the momentum of its successful trials by officially unveiling WiFi Ready, an offering where Comcast preinstalls wireless modems in multifamily units, the company said.

New residents can now purchase and activate their Internet service upon move-in for immediate WiFi access. WiFi Ready, which has been successfully trialed at properties from coast to coast, removes a major pain point of scheduling and waiting for a service appointment for residents and property managers.

WiFi Ready provides up to Gig-speed wireless connectivity capabilities that enable access to other Comcast offerings. Although the modem is pre-installed, residents who prefer to use their own modem can still do so by plugging it into any coax outlet in their unit. When a resident moves out, the disconnect process is just as easy as sign-up: customers call to transfer their service to a new residence, Xfinity Communities handles everything else. The unit is ready for the next resident to begin the process.

Xfinity Communities provides residents, property managers, owners and developers with a smarter living experience that differentiates properties with customized solutions. Offering a better network, better entertainment and better service to multifamily properties, senior villages and college dwellings, Xfinity Communities properties deliver an end-to-end service throughout the resident´s technology lifecycle.
