Comcast Internet Essentials News

On Tuesday, Comcast announced that in just three and a half years, we’ve connected more than 450,000 families, or 1.8 million low-income Americans, to the Internet at home through our Internet Essentials program. You can read more about this milestone here.

We are very proud of this achievement, but know it wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of committed community partners like the City of Philadelphia, the School District of Philadelphia and the Free Library of Philadelphia. Thank you for your hard work in helping to bridge the digital divide in Philadelphia!

In order to keep the momentum going in Philadelphia, we are extending an offer for up to 6 months of complimentary Internet Essentials service for families who sign up between now and May 31st. Here are the details:

Families in Philadelphia schools may qualify for up to 6 months of complimentary Internet service if you apply for Internet Essentials, our low-cost, $9.95 a month + tax Internet service from Comcast, from March 1st — May 31st.
