I've sometimes seen a wifi network named "XFINITY" (all uppercase) appear on my network list in addition to the "xfinitywifi" (lowercase). The first time I saw it I tried to connect to it and it asked me for my password and login in a different type of window than I've ever seen. I because suspicious of it and later that day changed my Xfinity password, thinking that it might have been a phishing attempt to make it look like it was an Xfinity wifi hotspot, but that it might have just been a scam.
I see one now in my local area. The "xfinitywifi" hotspot seems worthless and I can't stay connected to it and when I am the signal is sooooo poor that my iPad can't connect to anything. The CableWIFI is also equally as bad. SO, is xfinity in the process or renaming or changing their hotspot SSID names to XFINITY, or is this just someone being funny or trying to spoof others into logging into a false network?
