    Comcast became the first Internet Provider to offer a product designed to maintain connectivity when a storm hits, trees are down, or a customer experiences a local outage, with the launch of Storm-Ready WiFi. With severe weather impacting the North Bay, there has never been a greater need for a back-up connectivity solution.

    The Storm-Ready WiFi device is equipped with cellular back-up and a four-hour rechargeable battery, more than enough power to keep customers up and running for the average power outage in the U.S. of two hours. Storm-Ready WiFi also doubles as a WiFi extender to deliver a strong signal to every corner of the home.

    Being connected to news and loved ones during a local crisis like a weather event has never been more important. Storm-Ready WiFi is one of the many ways consumers can stay connected when the power goes out.
