As ACP Funding Expires, Comcast Has the Midwest’s Back

Project Up - Student in Park

Comcast has been a leader in narrowing the nation’s digital divide for more than a decade. 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 was the last month in which participating households received their full ACP benefit.

As the ACP winds down, here’s how Comcast is working with our customers and partners by offering a range of affordable options to meet the needs of every budget.

  • As the government funding winds down in May, Comcast will offer a $14 credit to all Xfinity ACP customers.
  • Part of a new product portfolio, 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 per month for 100Mbps 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 50Mbps 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 100Mbps service for $29.95 per month (equipment included, no credit check, no cancellation fee).
  • Comcast will offer all new 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, including 100+ in the Midwest. Lift Zones are local community centers we’ve specifically outfitted with business-grade WiFi to ensure families can get online.

If you know of households that 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.
