If I set bedtime on Xfi, will my children be able to use the pubic hotspot - "xfinitywifi"?

If I set bedtime on Xfi, will my children be able to use the pubic hotspot - "xfinitywifi"?

Or will Xfi block them from using that SSID as well?  (if not, I will have to disable guest access.)

Currently bedtime only pauses WiFi access on your home network and does not pause access using the public XFINITY WiFi hotspot (xfinitywifi), other available WiFi networks or access using cellular data.

For anyone who lives in an apartment building they will not be able to use this feature.  Will this ever be fixed?
