Comcast says it plans to increase the download speed on its Internet Essentials package, a program designed for low-income users that offers service for $9.95 a month. Beginning March 1, the company will double internet download speed to 50 megabits per second and increase the upstream speed to 5 megabits per second for all new and existing customers at no additional cost, the company said.

The company recently announced it would give Xfinity customers until this summer to adapt to its new data cap. The 1.2-terabyte cap has been criticized across the Northeast since it was announced last June, but Comcast officials say only a “very small percentage” of customers will be impacted. Customers will not have to pay more if they exceed the 1.2 terabytes limit until August, the company said.
