Comcast Offers Low-Income Families Up to Six Months of Complimentary Internet Service

Make sure your children are prepared to succeed in the 2014-2015 school year with home Internet. Give them the tools to complete homework, email teachers, and stay connected. Your family may qualify for up to 6 months of complimentary Internet service by applying to Internet Essentials, the low-cost, $9.95 a month + tax, Internet service from Comcast before September 20, 2014.

Families eligible for the program include those with at least one child eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program.  Once in the Internet Essentials program, participants receive fast, affordable Internet service for $9.95 a month + tax, the option to purchase a computer for just $150 and access to free digital literacy training.

Comcast is also offering an amnesty program for certain low-income families who could qualify for Internet Essentials, but have a past due balance. Comcast customers who have an outstanding bill that is more than one year old are now eligible for the program. Comcast will offer amnesty for that debt for the purpose of connecting to Internet Essentials, so long as the customer meets all the other eligibility criteria.

Call 1-855-339-6124 or visit this website before September 20, 2014, to see if you qualify and to apply.
