Comcast Is Offering 60 Days of Free Internet for Low-Income Families Right Now

Low-income families can potentially get two months of free internet from Comcast in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The internet is being offered through its Internet Essentials program, an existing Comcast program that offers the same internet for $9.95 a month to those families.

Through the new promotion starting Monday, new Internet Essentials customers will be able to get basic internet (25 Mbps downloads and 3 Mbps uploads) for free. The service has no contract, no credit check, and no installation fee. That 25Mbps speed also represents a bit of a bump from the traditional offering of 15 Mbps internet through the service.

To qualify you’ll typically need to be someone that is already eligible for a public assistance program such as the National School Lunch Program, Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, or SSI. You’ll also need to live in an area where Comcast is available, but have not subscribed to the service in the past 90 days and not have an outstanding debt to Comcast that is less than a year old.

If that sounds like you, you can apply for the service on Comcast’s website. If approved, you’ll receive a welcome kit and internet equipment within 7-10 business days.

While that might not be much help this coming week, if you have kids that are staying home from school, or if you yourself are trying to work from home, then it will likely definitely come in handy down the line.

And since there’s no contract, if you no longer want the service after 60 days you can cancel it entirely without ever paying a dime.
