Over the last 10 years, Comcast has connected over 10 million people from low-income families to low-cost, high-speed Internet at home with our industry-leading Internet Essentials program, which remains priced at $9.95 per month even after six speed increases over the past decade. Now, Comcast is committing $1 billion over the next 10 years to reach 50 million people with the connectivity, skills, training, and resources they need to be ready for anything.
We’ve built a powerful network with a simple purpose: keeping our customers connected — always. As connectivity becomes ever more important, we’re working hard to build and evolve a smart, reliable network that delivers fast Internet speeds for customers to browse, videoconference, stream and game.
