Access to the Internet
So much of what we do now requires access to the internet. This is even more true when kids have to stay home because of COVID-19. If you do not have wifi access at home, and if you receive public benefits (SNAP, Section 8, public housing, free school lunch, etc.) you can now get internet in your home for free.
Comcast is offering Internet Essentials (which is decently fast wifi for your home for free) for 2 months for new wifi customers during the pandemic and then $9.99 per month. You can also call them at 1-855-8-INTERNET (1-855-846-8376).
Comcast is also making all of its Xfinity wifi hotspots free for everyone. Enable wifi on your device and then choose xfinitywifi. Here is a map of Xfinity hotspots.
