Comcast announced today that it is continuing to help college students stay connected to the Internet over the Summer and through the Fall back-to-school rush by extending an Xfinity Internet offering that provides $150 Visa prepaid card to students who sign up for service by September 30; more than enough to pay for two months of Internet service. We understand the value of being connected during times like these and want to help these students left without access.
Since first introducing this offer to university students in late March, thousands of students have been assisted in getting connected to the power of the Internet at home through this program.
The university offer is available to college students who live in households that are not already Xfinity customers but are located in the Xfinity service area. There are no upfront fees, and with a self-install kit, no installation costs.
This extension is part of Comcast’s broader effort to help students stay connected as they prepare for the upcoming school year. Last week, Comcast announced that it will extend its overwhelmingly successful offer of free service for 60 days via its Internet Essentials program originally set to expire June 30, through the end of 2020 to help ensure students are equipped with Internet service at home.
Access to the Internet has never been more important, and we want to help everyone – no matter where they are in their stage of life – to stay connected during this challenging time.
