PHILADELPHIA – As shelter in place continues to be the norm and schools remain closed across the country, Comcast announced it will extend its commitments for Xfinity customers through June 30 to help ensure students can finish out the school year from home and remain connected to the internet during the COVID-19 crisis. 

Originally announced on March 13, Comcast committed to no disconnects and waiving late fees of Xfinity Internet, Xfinity Mobile or Xfinity Voice service, and will waive late fees if customers alert Comcast that they can’t pay their bills during this period and xfinity wifi free for everyone. 

Internet Essentials is extending its offer of 60 days of complimentary service for new customers through June 30. Internet Essentials is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95 per month. 

“These extended measures will continue to keep Americans safe and ensure that households are equipped for students to learn and stay informed at home as the nation copes with this unprecedented disruption to our daily lives,” said Dave Watson, Comcast Cable chief executive officer. “Our services have never been more important, and we’re doing everything we can to keep people connected to the internet.”
