As the country deals with the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Comcast is taking immediate steps to help connect more low-income families to the Internet at home.
Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, new Internet Essentials customers will receive two free months of Internet service. They are also increasing the speed of the program to 25 Mbps downloads, and 3 Mbps uploads for all new and existing customers.
You may qualify if you are eligible for public assistance programs such as the National School Lunch Program, Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, SSI, and others.
After your first two free months expire, you can either cancel the service (which you can do at any time) or keep it as a regular paying Internet Essentials customer for $9.95 per month plus tax.
You will receive an easy to use self-install-kit that includes a cable modem (to receive service at your home) with a WiFi router (to connect your devices without wires).
There is no term contract or credit check and no shipping fee for equipment.
