As our country continues to manage the COVID-19 emergency, Comcast is taking immediate steps to make it easier to connect low-income families to home Internet.
Due to the launch of the Affordable Connectivity Program on December 30, 2021, Comcast is sunsetting the two-free months promotion as of that date. After that date, new Internet Essentials customers can obtain free Internet service only by enrolling in the Affordable Connectivity Program.
For all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, the speed of the program’s Internet service has increased from 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream to 50 Mbps downstream and 10 Mbps upstream.
Households with outstanding debt owed to Comcast may be eligible for Internet Essentials. We are waiving this qualification if you apply and are approved by 06/30/22. After 06/30/22, standard eligibility rules apply.

Many wireless carriers offer Wi-Fi hotspot access to their own customers; however, if you are not a customer there are other options. Various businesses such as coffee shops, restaurants, and others offer free Wi-Fi hotspots as part of their amenities.
Did you know Facebook can help you find hotspots near you? The Facebook mobile app is actually one of the easiest ways to find free Wi-Fi if you already have the app installed. To use Facebook to find free internet, open the More menu and then tap Find Wi-Fi (You might have to tap See More at the bottom to show it). If there aren't Wi-Fi networks where you're currently located, find a different area on the map and tap Search this area to look for free internet there. Switch between List and Map view for different ways to view the results.
Be Cyber Smart! Free, open wireless networks may pose a security risk. Always ensure your computer's firewall is turned on and you have anti-virus software installed to help prevent any unexpected intrusions.
