Now more than ever, we rely on each other. To keep eachother safe. To be responsible, supportive, mindful, caring and to be there for eachother in ways we never had to be before.  

The same can be said for the businesses around us, big or small, local or national. We watched as companies have adapted, pivoted, risen to the occasion, tried and failed, worked harder and faster to make our lives safer, better, more comfortable, more sustainable and ultimately more bearable during this very difficult, very daunting and unprecedented global pandemic. 

Xfinity is right up there with companies that have looked at the times, looked at the problems and found solutions for their customers and communities. Here are some things you need to know about Comcast Xfinity, so that you’re using and taking advantage of all they have to offer, so that you switch over ASAP, and so that you know about and feel inspired by the heart behind the company.

As we reflect on 2020 and look onwards and upwards to the new year, we hope to move forward with new perspectives, appreciation, what we have learned, gained, lost, and we hope that the companies we support, support us and our goals. We have worried about ongoing environmental events, we have witnessed and grieved over social unrest, small businesses continue to deal with the ongoing impact of this pandemic. One thing we love and admire is how Comcast rises to the occasion. Comcast RISE (Representation, Investment, Strength and Empowerment) is a multi year commitment to provide tech makeovers from Comcast Business or marketing, media, and creative services to Black, Indigenous and People of Color -owned small businesses. They are here to empower small business owners to keep going and to invest in their success by providing valuable and necessary support. Learn more about the initiative and spread the word.

 

We strive to align with people, and companies that know there is a moral obligation to do more, be better, and just simply help. Comcast remains committed to keeping customers connected during this pandemic. They are committed to making their services available to families and students who do not have access. They have more than 1.5 million Xfinity WiFi hotspots in business and outdoor locations FREE for everyone. It’s the largest WiFi network in the country, check out the map.

In addition to providing these hotspots, Comcast is working with public schools stretching all around the Boston area to provide free internet service directly to students in need. Internet Essentials has been made available since 2011 for eligible low-income families. This has connected more than EIGHT MILLION people since its inception. Any new eligible customers who sign up before 6/30/2021 will receive 60 days complimentary service. For more information and to apply, visit www.internetessentials.com. Additionally, Comcast is currently providing Lift Zones to community centers across the country to get students online, allow them to participate in distance learning and get that schoolwork done. Since the September launch, Comcast plans to have at least 200 Lift Zones installed by the end of the year. Stay tuned for details on the Boston area locations!

In the meantime, stay safe, stay cozy and healthy, and stay connected with Comcast.
