Xfinity AT&T

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

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

Local media covered the need for expanded low-income internet access in the early days of the Covid pandemic, but so far no plans or programs have materialized beyond those like Xfinity Essentials and ACP that are available throughout the region.

Xfinity low-income plans

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

Xfinity is the dominant low-income internet provider in Visalia and Tulare 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 Visalia, 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 Visalia 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.
