Forget LTE! Soon You’ll Have Free WiFi Everywhere Thanks To These Cable Companies

Lately we’ve been caught between the battle of the carriers. Everyone is trying to win over customers with LTE. So far Sprint’s soon-to-be-launched unlimited LTE plans, is the only thing that looks promising. Well that was until this news came along…

CableWiFi is a new service that may be rolling out through your cable internet provider. This new service intends to launch 50,000 WiFi hotspots that you can use completely free as a customer of the provider. The concept sounds really great. Having WiFi everywhere has potential to kill limited LTE plans altogether.

This new service was announced today and is expected to be rolled-out by the end of 2012. The new service is being put on by Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox Communications, and Time Warner Cable.

Basically these service providers went in on a bunch of WiFi hotspots together. With this, you’ll be able to roam across cable provider’s hotspots completely free of charge! Simply login with your account credentials for the provider and bam, you’ve got WiFi!

Here’s a snippet from the Cox Press Release:

The first implementation is already complete as Bright House Networks and Cablevision launched “CableWiFi” alongside their branded WiFi networks in the New York City area and central Florida earlier this month. Over the next few months, the “CableWiFi” network name will be added by each of the cable companies to their branded WiFi hotspots…

…The participating cable operators currently offer more than 50,000 WiFi hotspots located in New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area, Los Angeles, Tampa, Orlando, and Philadelphia. The operators plan to continue to grow the number of WiFi hotspots and expand into several additional cities. The network has both indoor and outdoor WiFi hotspots located in popular, high traffic locations, such as shopping districts, cafes, malls, arenas, restaurants, parks and beaches. Subscribers will be able to find the nearest WiFi hotspots by visiting the WiFi homepage of their current cable provider or going to

This is indeed very exciting. I just hope they have CableWiFi in my city by the time the new iPhone or iPhone 5 is released. I’m fearing a limited LTE plan like a child fears the boogie monster! Having limitless WiFi hotspots everywhere will definitely be a win for consumers! It might also make me remember to pay my cable bill on time…

Right now it looks like their focused on a roll-out in the cities mentioned above, but I’m sure as the time goes by and popularity increases this is definitely something we could potentially see nationwide.

Is CableWifi coming to you?
