Comcast Internet Essentials Enhancements
Posted on 08/19/2020

Comcast recently announced a new partnership program for cities, school districts, and community organizations like yours to connect large numbers of low-income students and families to the Internet at home. Additionally, Comcast has expanded the reach of its xFi platform to put parental controls into the hands of even more parents.

  • Our new “Internet Essentials Partnership Program” (IEPP) enables participating organizations to sponsor or pay for service on behalf of families. Sponsored families have access to all the benefits Internet Essentials has to offer—a high-speed Internet connection at home, the option to purchase a low-cost computer, and access to free digital skills training in person (if safe), online, and in print.
  • Comcast’s xFi platform is also now available to all Internet Essentials customers. It provides parents with a digital dashboard to set up, manage, and monitor their home WiFi; set safe-browsing modes so children can only access age-appropriate content; and even pause WiFi access to devices for dinner or bedtime.
