Comcast Internet Essentials

Updated on December 22, 2012

Low Cost Internet

Internet Home Essentials is a service for residential customers in the United States provided by Comcast Cable. It is only for families with at least one child on the National School Lunch Program. It is a low cost way for you and your family to connect to the internet. With free training online, in person, or in print.

The monthly fee is $9.95 a month for internet service. Applicants may apply if they have not had prior service within the last 90 days and do not have any outstanding past due balances or unreturned equipment. And have at least on child on the National School Lunch Program.

In order to apply you have to call Comcast directly. The number is 1-855-846-8376. They are available 7 days a week from 6 am to 12 midnight. If you already have internet access and a printer they will email the application to you to print out and sign. Or if your like me and have no ink in your printer they mail it to you. The application process takes 3 to 4 wks if your child's school is not already on the preapproved school list.

So anyways, if you do however have a child in a preapproved school the application process takes 2 days and you receive the equipment within 5 to 7 days.

Once you receive the equipment the speed of service is 3.0MB per second. It comes with Norton Anti-Virus for one full year for free, which is worth $160.00 . You also have the option when approved to buy a low cost PC for $149.00.
