April will be last month for Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

With Congress and the Administration failing to come to an agreement to extend additional funding for the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP),  April will be the last month in which participating households will receive their full ACP benefit. As the ACP winds down, I wanted to share a quick update on how Comcast is working with our customers and partners to help keep your residents connected.

Comcast has been a leader in narrowing the digital divide in New Jersey for more than a decade. Even with the ACP ending, we will continue to offer a range of affordable options to meet the needs of every budget:

  • In May as the government funding winds down, Comcast will offer a $14 credit to all Xfinity ACP customers.
  • Starting April 16, Comcast NOW will offer affordable, pre-paid Internet, mobile, and TV plans to any customer in our service area – including home internet plans starting at $30/month for 100 Mbps and NOW Mobile plans offering unlimited 5G and WiFi hotspot data for $25 per month.
  • Every household that has been enrolled in the ACP – whether with Comcast or with any other provider – is eligible for Internet Essentials, offering 50 Mbps internet service for $9.95 per month (equipment included, no credit check, no cancellation fee).
  • ACP enrollees can choose to double their speed with Internet Essentials Plus, offering 100 Mbps service for $29.95 per month (equipment included, no credit check, no cancellation fee).
  • Comcast will offer all Internet Essentials and Internet Essentials Plus customers one line of Xfinity Mobile at no additional cost for up to 12 months.
  • We’ll also continue to offer unlimited access to the nation’s largest network of WiFi hotspots through WiFi Pass, for $10 for the first month and $20 per month thereafter.
  • Comcast will continue to offer free WiFi in 1,250+ Lift Zones nationwide.  Lift Zones, as you know, are local community centers we’ve specially outfitted with business-grade WiFi to ensure families can get online. 
  • If you are working with households who will be impacted by the expiration of the ACP, encourage them to call 1-800-Xfinity, so our team can help them learn more about all the offers available in this area.  Comcast will also work closely with local governments, school districts, healthcare providers, and nonprofits to help families get and stay connected to the internet.
