As you know many our our families are without reliable internet access. Comcast is offering access to free wifi hotspots nationwide. Consumers will need an eligible wifi capable device in order to connect. The attached link will allow families to check for wifi availability in their area, as well as offer a step-by-step video tutorial for connecting from almost any eligible device.
In addition to free wifi, Comcast has updated their internet essentials plan to offer the following:
New Internet Essentials customers will receive two free months of Internet service if they apply by April 30, 2020. After promotion, regular rates apply.
For all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, the speed of the program’s Internet service has increased to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream.
Households with outstanding debt owed to Comcast may be eligible for Internet Essentials. We are waiving this qualification if you apply and are approved by 5/13/20. After 5/13/20, standard eligibility rules apply.
