MOBILE, Ala (WKRG) – Comcast is offering customers free and discounted Internet options with the Affordable Connectivity Program.
The federal CPA offers eligible low-income households a credit of up to $30 per month to cover the cost of their Internet service. This service replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit program in the longer term.
ACP Credits are available for all company Xfinity Internet speed tiers, including Internet Essentials. Internet Essentials is a low-cost broadband Internet adoption program for low-income families with high school, high school, and college students, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities. Internet Essentials is also available to those enrolled in public assistance and housing assistance programs.
“As the world becomes increasingly digital, it’s crucial that everyone has the resources and opportunities they need to excel in today’s economy. We’re making it easy to use ACP Credits for Xfinity Internet Services for new and existing customers and encourage mobile area residents to call us or log on to www.xfinity.com/free.”
Comcast Regional Vice President Jason Grumbs
