Comcast thinks it ok to install public wifi in your house

You're spot on. I don't understand this griping. The flip side is that as a(n) happy xfinity customer I get to roam in lots of places around the US (and maybe even abroad),  as do all of the xfinity home customers. This isn't a paid service... It's a byproduct of being a cable customer. I'm happy to pay a few pennies a day. 

The only challenge I see is the issue around wifi congestion. In my DC condo building there are a couple of hundred xfinity cable modem customers, mostly with wifi. However, with a little bit of work with the comcast techs, our neighborhood is pretty happy. Tip of the hat to Jason and Mike O'.
