Xfinity AT&T

Low-income internet plans are available in Fremont, but Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) discounts are more popular thanks to the higher income limits. Ten percent of local households can qualify for ACP discounts, according to our analysis of local census income data.

Xfinity offers the best price-to-speed value among Fremont plans. Pricing starts at $9.95 per month, with equivalent pricing for customers who sign up using an ACP discount.

Xfinity low-income plans

Xfinity (Comcast) offers 2 low-income internet plans in Fremont: Xfinity Internet Essentials and Xfinity Internet Essentials Plus.

Xfinity is the dominant low-income internet provider in Fremont and Alameda County thanks to low pricing compared with other options like AT&T.

Xfinity Internet Essentials

  • Download speed: 50 Mbps (50 Mbps upload)
  • Monthly price: $9.95 plus tax
  • Fees: Taxes only.

Xfinity Internet Essentials Plus

  • Download speed: 100 Mbps (100 Mbps upload)
  • Monthly price: $29.95 plus tax

AT&T low-income plans

AT&T currently offers just one plan option for low-income customers in Fremont, called AT&T Access 10.

The key issue with AT&T's low-income offerings is network availability. Less than half of the AT&T network in Fremont has been upgraded to fiber, which means that most low-income locations are serviced by older copper lines. AT&T is a better fit for mid-income customers using an ACP discount — but only within the AT&T Fiber service area.

AT&T Access 10

  • Download speed: 10 Mbps (10 Mbps upload)
  • Monthly price: $10 plus tax
  • Fees: Taxes only.
