Comcast is endeavoring to help connect low-income families to the internet. The media and technology company is extending its offer of 60-days of free internet throughout the rest of the year. The deal was initially only set to be offered through June 30.
The free internet for 60 days deal is for new, eligible Internet Essential customers. Internet Essentials is a program that brings the Internet to low-income families for $9.95 a month (plus tax). Currently 8 million people are part of the Internet Essential program, which also gives customers a chance to purchase a low-cost Internet-ready computer.
Previously, those with a past due balance with Comcast could not qualify for the offer. However, Comcast is waiving that requirement for the rest of the year.
You can learn more about Internet Essentials at internetessentials.com or by calling 855-846-8376. Spanish speakers can call 855-765-6995 for more information.
The Internet Essentials deal is just one of several initiatives undertaken by Comcast to help families in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. It also made free Xfinity wifi hotspots available throughout the country through June 30, waived late fees and promised no service disconnections because of lack of payment as long as customers contacted customer service.
