Because of COVID-19 (the coronavirus), more small-business owners are working from home than ever before. In response to the outbreak, internet providers are offering to help out.
All internet companies nationwide are pledging to waive any late fees or data overages for the next 60 days. In addition, certain companies are offering special deals and upgrades to new and existing customers.
Comcast Xfinity’s Internet Essentials program offers two free months of service to new customers and unlimited data use for 60 days to all subscribers. Additionally, the provider is allowing anybody to use Xfinity hotspots for free and is automatically increasing internet speeds for all essentials customers.
Cox is offering the first month of its low-income internet program, Connect 2 Compete, for free until May 12, 2020. The provider is also giving free phone and remote desktop support.
