The Xfinity Wi-Fi Access Pass, also referred to as the Xfinity WiFi On Demand Pass, allows you to buy access to a hotspot if you are not a customer of Xfinity.
The Xfinity Wifi Day pass gets you 24 hours of Wi-Fi access. You can pay for extra access for one hour, two hours, one day, one week or 30 days. You can learn more about using Xfinity Wifi Day Pass and its cost as you read on.

Xfinity WiFi On Demand offers connections to millions of Xfinity hotspots across the US for various periods, from 1 hour to 30 days, anytime. Users will also get free network trial access per month.
