(WTXL) — As Hurricane Dorian approaches Florida, Comcast announced Friday it's opening up a network of free Xfinity WiFi hotspots for all Florida residents.

The company announced that they will open their network of almost 200,000 Xfinity WiFi hotspots throughout Florida to anyone who needs them, including non-Xfinity customers, for free.

If you are a non-Xfinity internet subscriber you will need to click the “Accept and Connect” button on the top half of the screen to get online. Those users will have to renew their sessions every two hours.

If you are an Xfinity internet customer, you must enter your account information on the bottom half of the screen and click the “Continue” button to get online. You will then automatically be connected to Xfinity WiFi hotspots in the future.
