Comcast is participating in the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and recently introduced two new ACP-focused offers giving consumers new choices to take full advantage of the up to $30/month credit. Households may be eligible if they participate in programs like the National School Lunch Program, SNAP, Medicaid, housing assistance, Federal Pell Grant and others.

  • Internet Essentials Plus – To provide more options for Internet Essentials (IE) customers, Comcast is introducing a new, faster tier of home broadband service which will be fully covered by the ACP credit and has twice the download speed of the original IE service. Internet Essentials Plus will offer download speeds up to 100 Mbps (10 Mbps upload) for $29.95/month. Existing IE customers can upgrade to this tier anytime, and new customers can sign up for the service regardless of whether they participate in ACP. Internet Essentials Plus customers who enroll in ACP will have their broadband service charges completely covered by the $30/month government credit.
  • Xfinity Mobile – Comcast’s top-rated Xfinity Mobile service is now available to customers participating in the Affordable Connectivity Program, giving them the ability to save even more money on their connectivity needs both at home and on-the-go. Internet Essentials customers can use their $30/month ACP discount to pay for both Xfinity Internet and Xfinity Mobile service.

Since 2011, Internet Essentials has connected a cumulative total of more than 10 million people nationwide to the Internet at home, most for the first time. New and existing Xfinity Internet or Internet Essentials customers can visit or call 844-389-4681 for more information, to determine eligibility, and sign up
