"Then I guess you have no problem with Comcast charging you $8.00 a month rental for the privilege of hosting the hotspot."

The hotspot can be turned off, users of it can't get access to your own LAN, and as an Xfinity user you have the ability to use other people's Xfinity hotspots, just like BTWIFI.
