Comcast has launched a new Wi-Fi service in New Jersey Transit stations that's free for its subscribers. Underway since Friday, the trial run that Comcast is offering is taking place at over 100 stations, and suggests the cable giant may be testing how to best compete against wireless-offering telecoms such as Verizon. eWEEK has put together a list of where the Comcast Wi-Fi service is being offered in New Jersey.

Earlier today, we reported on Comcast's trial introduction of Wi-Fi for New Jersey Transit commuters. More than 100 rail stations and parking lots are participating in the program, which is still in the early stages; Comcast customers, after signing in with their usernames and passwords, can surf at speeds of roughly 1.5 Megabits per second.

The following list, posted on the Comcast Web site, breaks down the stations now equipped with Comcast Wi-Fi.
