We are all making adjustments to our daily lives because of the coronavirus crisis, and with more people working and studying from home, Comcast is stepping up.

Customers will get unlimited data for no additional charge and the company’s network of Xfinity WiFi hot spots are free for everyone.

And the Philly media power won’t disconnect service or impose late fees if customers can’t pay their bills during the pandemic, which has shut down some industries and put many out of work.

In addition, the company is offering new low-income customers 60 days of free internet service and boosting their broadband speeds.

The commitments come after Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai urged internet service providers to keep consumers connected during the coronavirus outbreak.

Comcast, the nation’s largest home internet provider, was one of dozens of companies that agreed to waive late fees and service cancellations and open WiFi hot spots to all Americans for the next 60 days.

“During this extraordinary time, it is vital that as many Americans as possible stay connected to the internet – for education, work, and personal health reasons,” Dave Watson, CEO of Comcast’s cable unit, said in a statement.
