      Stay Connected: Comcast Announces Comprehensive COVID-19 Response to Help Keep Americans Connected 
      to the Internet
      Comcast has developed a comprehensive plan in response to Coronavirus COVID -19 to ensure people can stay connected through the Internet to their schools, workplaces, families, and the latest important information about the virus.
       
      We are taking steps to implement the following new policies for the next 60 days, and other important initiatives:
       
      • Opening Xfinity WiFi free for everyone 
      • Offering Internet Essentials (IE) to new customers with complimentary service and increasing speeds to 25/3 Mbps for all new and existing IE customers, which will become the speed of the service going forward
      • Waiving usage-based billing for 60 days for all customers
      • No disconnects or late fees
      • Available on X1 is news, information and educational content 
      
      • 24/7 network monitoring 
      Comcast Increases Access to and Speeds of Internet Essentials to Support Americans Through 
      Coronavirus Pandemic
      Comcast is enhancing its Internet Essentials program to assure that low-income Americans have access to the Internet during this challenging time.
       
      Many of our valued partners, like you, have reached out for support, and we recently made two important announcements about Internet Essentials:
      ·        First, to help connect more low-income families during this difficult time, we’re offering any new Internet Essentials customer two months of Internet service, effective immediately. After the second month, customers are free to cancel their service, as the program never requires a contract, or remain in the program as paying customers at the heavily discounted Internet Essentials rate of $9.95 a month. 
      
      ·        Second, for all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, we’re going to increase the speed of the program’s Internet service to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream. That increase will go into effect for no additional fee and customers won’t have to do a thing. The speed will become the new base speed for the program going forward. 
      Please help us spread the word with your networks that could benefit from this program, and with your help, we can raise awareness about this important opportunity.
