I Cannot Access Spectrum Wifi Hotspots while Traveling

in Connectivity May 22, 2023

I was told that I could access wifi hot spots while traveling, and yet I cannot login not matter what i try. I have tried the "Spectrum Free Trial" and I have tried the mobile app. Nothing will connect even though I see the SSID. Another site mentioned I may need my home fiber modem re-provisioned? Is that true? If so who do I contact?

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. Unfortunately, access is not currently available on all devices. Some android devices, including the Samsung S21 do not have access available. Our developers are working on adding more devices in the future.

    Thanks. I will try when I travel today. You can also see I don't have a "Wifi Profile" available on My Spectrum app.

    What device are you using? Have you been able to access hotspots before?

    I was trying with my cell phone. Samsung S21. And no I have never been able to connect. I have only ever tried my cell.

    Looks like they are still wrangling with the Android issues in general... same symptoms with the lesser Samsung A21 (cannot download/configure the wifi profile).
