Comcast Offers Internet Savings to Low-Income Households | News

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — Comcast users in central Pennsylvania can now enjoy free and discounted Internet options through the Comcast Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).

The program provides eligible low-income households with a credit of up to $30 per month for the cost of Internet service ($75 per month for households on eligible tribal lands). Eligible customers can apply ACP credits to any tier of Xfinity Internet, including Internet Essentials.

“As the world becomes increasingly digital, it’s crucial that everyone has the resources and opportunities they need to excel in today’s economy,” said Alka Patel, regional vice president of external and governmental affairs. “The Affordable Connectivity Program is a unique opportunity that Comcast is proud to offer to all of our qualifying customers so they can connect and stay connected to the Internet.”

Comcast recently introduced two new ways for customers to take advantage of ACP:

Internet Essential Plus

The new level of service is available in all Comcast service areas to any eligible customer, with download speeds of up to 100 Mbps compared to Internet Essentials’ traditional 50 Mbps.

Internet Essentials Plus is available for $29.95 per month for new customers who qualify. Existing Internet Essentials users can upgrade at any time. CPA registrants will receive free service after the $30 discount is applied.

Xfinity Mobile

CPA registrants can now access the Xfinity Mobile service, which includes 5G. Internet Essentials users can use their $30/month ACP rebate to pay for both Xfinity Internet service and Xfinity Mobile service. For example, an Internet Essentials customer (paying $9.95/month) can add unlimited line on Xfinity Mobile ($45/month) for $24.95/month after applying the ACP discount.

Xfinity Mobile has no line access or activation fees and has unlimited access to calls and texts. Customers must pay for cellular data, either through unlimited plans or by the gigabyte. Users can switch between unlimited or gigabyte mobile plans at will.

Xfinity mobile devices can connect to Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots to reduce cellular data usage.
