Ahh ok, i guess they will not be providing me one then.
Won't be leasing a comcast router anytime soon.
There is an opt out feature on these routers, I read the article a few hours ago. What I don't like is no price break for the folks who do allowe this on the routers in their homes using their electricity. I know the electricity is minimal but still!
Copy and paste from the article I read "This is an "opt-out" service, not "opt-in." As soon as you get one of these new WiFi routers for your home network, your neighbors who are Xfinity customers can get free bits from you."
The "price break" is that you get the ability to use the public wifi.
That logic makes no sense. If they are your neighbors, and Comcast customers, why would they use your connection and not just use their own Comcast connection that they actually pay for? And even if they do for some stupid reason, if it has no effect on the bandwidth provided to you, what does it matter?
Separate names with a comma.
