Xfinity AT&T

With a local poverty rate of fourteen percent, low-income internet plans are a prominent option in Salinas.

Xfinity offers the best price-to-speed value among Salinas 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 Salinas: Xfinity Internet Essentials and Xfinity Internet Essentials Plus.

Xfinity is the dominant low-income internet provider in Salinas and Monterey 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 Salinas, 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 Salinas 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.
