Xfinity in home hot spot & data usage

If I use my Xfinity WiFi in home hotspot will the data count against my 1TB cap? Thank you.

Re: Xfinity in home hot spot & data usage

Data used on hotspots does not count toward the cap. However when using an XB6 I could never connect to my own hotspot. It always tried to connect to a more distant hotspot. Maybe they have something in place to stop folks connecting to their own hotspots.

 

I did have a close neighbor who always transmitted the hotspot, often streamed Fire TV on that.

(Of course they may have changed things since I last used it in that way). 🙂
