“(F)or millions of low-income Americans who don’t have Internet service at home, this uncertain time is going to be even more difficult to manage. As schools and businesses close and families are encouraged, or even mandated, to stay home, Internet connectivity becomes even more important,” Comcast said in a press release.
Starting Monday, Comcast said it will offer low-income families who live within Comcast’s service areas 60 days of free “Internet Essentials” service, one of its lowest cost programs. Internet Essentials normally costs $9.95 per month.
Comcast said Internet Essentials “is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program for low-income Americans.”
In the same announcement, Comcast said it was speeding up its Internet Essentials service for all customers.
