If you are a customer of Comcast or Xfinity you could unwittingly (you must opt-out of the service) be the WiFi hotspot of your neighborhood under the new home-based, neighborhood hot-spot initiative - whether you want to or not. In a nutshell, if you have the newest version of Comcast's WiFi "Gateway' you will be broadcasting 2 signals; your private one, and the one that any other Comcast subscriber can use.
