Internet Essentials Expanded to Include Low Income Veterans


Internet Essentials Expanded to Include Low Income Veterans


We’re proud to expand our Internet Essentials program to low-income veterans across our service area. You can qualify if you are a verified veteran and receive state or federal assistance.



Find out if you're eligible for Internet Essentials by looking at the checklist below:

  1. Must be a low-income veteran.
  2. Must receive federal or state public assistance.
  3. Do not have outstanding debt to Comcast that is less than a year old. Veterans with outstanding debt more than one-year-old may still be eligible. 
  4. Live in an area where Comcast Internet service is available but not subscribed to it within the last 90 days. 


This is an addition to our existing Internet Essentials program that provides affordable Internet with no credit check, no installation fees, no term contract, 15 Mbps speed, and in-home WiFi included for eligible customers. Eligible Individuals include:
