I Have Lost My Xfinitywifi Hotspot Listing On

my Anroid phone Networks listing, I have checked my account and my Hotspot WIFI is Enabled, but not showing on my android phone for about a week, when I turn on my phones wifi. Only my WIFI "Named" Network is listed.  I have not changed or renamed my WiFi info / or password.

Thanks ~

2.4ghz hotspot has been disabled in most areas for some reason only 5ghz is being broadcasted now. If phone doesn't have dual band 5ghz you won't be able to see it.

I've also lost the "Xfinity" hotspot on both of my PCs.

it was working fine before and now it's just gone nowhere to be found. I can still connect to my home network but Xfinity has just disappeared.

 

I have an ASUS laptop

Xfinity : I Have Lost My Xfinitywifi Hotspot Listing On my phones Networks Listing !

Do you have to do something to switch it ? or does it automatically switch if one stops working and IF you have the other setting?  
So there is no way to use xfinitywifi hotspots from home ??

 

This must have happened to a lot of people - why would Xfinity remove something that everyone is using ?? 

Thanks

Yes you can still use home hotspot if device has 5ghz 802.11ac Wifi

 

Most older devices only 2.4ghz wifi so they can't see or connect to hotspot anymore. Would have to buy 5ghz USB adapter for computer/laptop.
