Following in the footsteps of Cablevision's Wi-Fi trials in Long Island, cable giant Comcast is now testing a free Wi-Fi service for its broadband customers in northern New Jersey, putting equipment in approximately 100 New Jersey Transit stations.

According to a report by The Associated Press, Comcast is promising data speeds of 1.5Mbps through the service. Subscribers just need to enter their login name and password in order to connect with their devices.

The Wi-Fi tests by the cable companies come as more people rely on 3G networks to surf the Web through their laptops and cell phones. In fact, they could keep more people from switching entirely to a cellular modem as their only form of Internet connectivity. To stem that tide, Comcast may need to roll out this Wi-Fi service across more of its markets quickly.
