Comcast in the Twin Cities offers free and discounted internet options through the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The CPA offers eligible low-income households a credit of up to $30 per month for the cost of internet service ($75 per month for households on eligible tribal lands). Eligible customers can apply ACP credits to any tier of Xfinity Internet, including Internet Essentials.
“As the world becomes increasingly digital, it’s crucial that everyone has the resources and opportunities to excel in today’s environment,” said Kalyn Hove, regional senior vice president, Comcast Twin. Cities. “The Affordable Connectivity Program is a unique opportunity that Comcast is proud to participate in and offer to all of our customers who qualify so they can enjoy the connectivity needed to function in today’s world.”
Comcast recently introduced two new ways for customers to take advantage of ACP:
Internet Essential Plus
Internet Essentials Plus is a new level of service for Comcast’s branded digital equity program that is available in all Comcast service areas to any qualifying customer. It offers twice the download speed – up to 100 Mbps – of traditional Internet Essentials service, which has an upload speed of 50 Mbps. Internet Essentials Plus is available for $29.95/month for new customers who qualify. Existing Internet Essentials customers can upgrade to this new, faster tier at any time. Customers who subscribe to Internet Essentials Plus and sign up for CPA will effectively get broadband for free after the $30/month government rebate is applied.
Comcast’s Xfinity Mobile service, which includes 5G, is now available to CPA-enrolled customers, saving them money on their connectivity needs inside and outside of the House. Internet Essentials customers can use their $30/month ACP rebate to pay for both Xfinity Internet service and Xfinity Mobile service. For example, an Internet Essentials customer (paying $9.95/month) can add unlimited line on Xfinity Mobile ($45/month) for $24.95/month after applying the ACP discount.
Xfinity Mobile has no line access or activation fees and comes with unlimited calling and texting, so customers only pay for cellular data. Customers can mix and match two simple plans on Xfinity Mobile with 5G included, Unlimited or By the Gig, and combine these mobile plans with any Internet service level to provide ultimate flexibility. They can also switch between Unlimited and By the Gig mobile plans at any time. Plus, Xfinity Mobile devices automatically connect to millions of Xfinity WiFi hotspots across the country to reduce customer reliance on cellular and save money.
