    Comcast- Internet Essentials As mentioned on the school wide call last night, some families may not have internet access. Therefore,
    Comcast- Internet Essentials has implemented a few programs to help families deal with this crisis. Attached are informational flyers and below is more information on support for families.
    Effective Monday, we are putting in place two substantial program enhancements to our Internet Essentials program to help these families deal with this crisis.
    We will make it even easier for low-income families who live in a Comcast service area to sign up by offering new customers 60 days of complimentary Internet Essentials service, which is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month.
    Also, we are increasing Internet speeds for the Internet Essentials service from 15/2 Mbps to 25/3 Mbps for all new and existing customers, which will be the speed of the service going forward. In this way, we will ensure that Internet Essentials customers will be able to use their Internet service for all their increased needs as a result of this health crisis.
