CableWiFi SSID in Washington DC?

There are indeed "FreePublicWiFi" nodes in some areas like Dupont Circle but it's not very convenient most of the time (signal strength or speed issues). IIRC there's a Commotion mesh around Columbia Heights which should be much faster. Personally, I just use a Mifi and never have any issues.

I haven't tried it in DC, but I can confirm that my parents' XFINITY and
grandparents' OO logins both work on the CableWiFi SSIDs in San Francisco,
and friends in DC with XFINITY say theirs work there. I assume it will also
for you.
