FRITZ!Box 6590 Cable Service

Can the hotspot services offered by a cable provider be used with the FRITZ!Box?

Some cable providers offer so-called hotspot services that use their customers' private wireless routers to make mobile internet access available to other customers.

You can only use such hotspot services with special wireless routers provided by the respective provider. Currently, you cannot use these hotspot services with the FRITZ!Box.

Note:The FRITZ!Box supports the specification "HotSpot 2.0/Passpoint". This function enables all cable providers to offer their hotspot services with the FRITZ!Box as well. Whether a cable provider allows its hotspot services to be used with the FRITZ!Box and to what extent depends on the provider.
