Comcast announced it will make the Internet Essentials program free to low-income households that don’t currently subscribe.
The purpose is to help people stay connected to vital information during these challenging times.
Those new customers will get complimentary internet service for 60 days.. The service is normally available to qualifying low-income households for $9.95 per month.
All new customers will receive a free self-install kit that includes a cable modem and WiFi router. There is no term contract.
To sign up, you can simply visit www.internetessentials.com.
There are also two dedicated phone numbers 1-855-846-8376 for English and 1-855-765-6995 for Spanish.
From the press release:
As our country continues to manage [this problem], we recognize that our company plays an important role in helping our customers stay connected – to their families, their workplaces, their schools, and the latest information about the virus – through the Internet.
