Comcast with comprehensive Covid-19 response
17 de marzo de 2020
On the heels of offering new, low-income Internet Essentials customers two months of free internet and raising the speed of that program’s service to 25/3 Mbps, Comcast announced additional steps to help ensure people stay connected to the internet as more schools suspend classes and companies encourage employees to work from home due to the Coronavirus.
“During this extraordinary time, it is vital that as many Americans as possible stay connected to the Internet -for education, work, and personal health reasons,” said Dave Watson, Comcast Cable Chief Executive Officer. “Our employees also live and work in virtually every community we serve, and we all share the same belief that it’s our Company’s responsibility to step up and help out.”
Comcast is taking steps to implement the following new policies for the next 60 days and other important initiatives:
-Xfinity WiFi Free for everyone: Xfinity WiFi hotspots across the country will be available to anyone who needs them for free – including non-Xfinity Internet subscribers.
-Pausing the Data Plan: Comcast is pausing its data plans for 60 days giving all customers unlimited data for no additional charge.
-No disconnects or late fees
-Internet Essentials free to new customers
-News, information and educational content on X1 and Flex
-24x7 network monitoring
