If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of your internet service going out unexpectedly in the middle of an important task or a binge-watching session, you know how inconvenient it can be. But fear not, because Comcast has a solution to ensure you stay connected, even in the event of an internet outage. Introducing Storm-Ready WiFi, a backup connectivity device that keeps customers connected during a storm or other outages.

Starting today, Comcast is rolling out Storm-Ready WiFi, designed to keep things moving when your primary service is interrupted. The device utilizes a cellular network connection, ensuring a seamless transition and keeping you connected even when your regular internet service is down. And to top it off, the backup battery of the device lasts for an impressive 4 hours, twice the length of the average power outage in the US.

One of the greatest advantages of Storm-Ready WiFi is its ease of use. Customers don’t have to worry about reconnecting any devices, as the device seamlessly integrates with their existing Xfinity gateway. When an outage occurs, the connection will automatically switch from broadband to 4G, ensuring uninterrupted internet access. This means that whether you’re working on urgent projects or simply enjoying your favorite shows, you can stay connected without missing a beat.

Even during non-outage periods, Storm-Ready WiFi proves to be a valuable asset. It functions as a Wi-Fi extender, expanding coverage to reach previously hard-to-reach areas of your home. So not only does it keep you connected during storms and power outages, but it also enhances your daily connectivity experience.

“With so much of our daily lives dependent on Wi-Fi connectivity,” said Emily Waldorf, Senior Vice President of Consumer Internet Services for Comcast, “we knew our customers needed a product that could help keep them connected no matter what life throws at them – even during a storm.” Storm-Ready WiFi was designed with this in mind, providing peace of mind and reliable connectivity when you need it the most.

Furthermore, Storm-Ready WiFi offers more than just a backup solution. It extends coverage to deliver Comcast’s best-in-class WiFi to even the farthest corners of your home. This means no more dead zones or weak signals in hard-to-reach areas. You can stream, work, and browse with confidence, knowing that your connection at home will continue even when the power is out.

Starting from August 15th, Storm-Ready WiFi is available for $7 a month, providing an affordable and reliable backup solution for Comcast customers.
