- Due to the Coronavirus emergency, households with outstanding debt owed to Comcast may be eligible for Internet Essentials. We are waiving this qualification if you apply and are approved by 06/30/21. After 06/30/21, standard eligibility rules apply. This means any low-income household that is not a current Xfinity customer or that has not subscribed to Xfinity Internet services within the last 90 days, but owes the company for a back due bill that is less than a year old (for Xfinity TV, Xfinity Internet, Xfinity Home, or Internet Essentials), will now be eligible to apply for Internet Essentials.
