Internet Essentials from Comcast

by MAPSA, on Aug 13, 2021 1:37:13 PM

As schools across the country are planning for when school returns, to help provide additional support to students and families, Comcast will continue to provide 60 days of free Internet service to new, eligible Internet Essentials customers through June 2022. In addition, Comcast will continue to waive, through June, the requirement that customers do not have a past due balance with Comcast to qualify for the free offer.

Since 2011, Internet Essentials has connected more than 10 million low-income people to the Internet. During that period, the program has grown from focusing on bridging the “homework gap” for school-age children to being deeply invested in providing digital equity. The program, which offers low-cost, high-speed Internet service for $9.95 a month plus tax, also provides multiple options to access free digital skills training in print, online, and in person. In addition, customers have the option to purchase a low-cost Internet-ready computer.

Internet Essentials is structured in partnership between Comcast and tens of thousands of school districts, libraries, elected officials, and nonprofit community partners. For individuals and organizations interested in becoming a partner, please visit: https://partner.internetessentials.com to order free collateral materials that will also be shipped free of charge.

Applicants can go to: www.internetessentials.com using any web-connected device, including mobile phones or call 1-855-846-8376 for English and 1-855-765-6995 for Spanish.
