(Carlisle) -- Comcast has launched up to 1,800 outdoor Wi-Fi hotspots throughout Pennsylvania, making the company the largest Wi-Fi provider in the state. 

Bob Grove, vice president of public relations of the Keystone region for Comcast Cable, says the installation began in March and April. 

Currently, 40 hotspots were installed in both the Mechanicsburg and Camp Hill areas in Cumberland County.

They are also available in Lemoyne, New Cumberland and East Pennsboro Township.

Another 1,500 more are expected by the end of the year. 

The hotspots will be located in `"high traffic locations'' such as parks, universities and commuter stations. 

They are available for Comcast Xfinity customers only, but non-subscribers can access them twice a month for one hour, free of charge.
