Comcast Offering Free and Discounted Internet Through Affordable Connectivity Program

Comcast Twin Cities

Comcast in the Twin Cities is offering free and discounted Internet options through the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP provides eligible low-income households a credit up to $30 a month toward the cost of Internet service ($75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands). Customers who qualify can apply ACP credits to any tier of Xfinity Internet, including Internet Essentials. “As the world becomes more digital, it is crucial that everyone has the needed resources and opportunities to excel in today’s environment,” said Kalyn Hove, Regional Senior Vice President, Comcast Twin Cities. “The Affordable Connectivity Program is a once in a lifetime opportunity that Comcast is proud to be participating in and offer to any of our customers who qualify so they can benefit from the connectivity needed to function in today’s world.” Comcast recently introduced two new ways for customers to benefit from the ACP: Internet Essentials Plus Internet Essentials Plus is a new tier of service for Comcast’s hallmark digital equity program that is available in all Comcast service areas to any customer who qualifies. It offers twice the download speed – up to 100 Mbps – of the traditional Internet Essentials service, which has a 50 Mbps download speed. Internet Essentials Plus is available for $29.95/month to new customers who qualify. Existing Internet Essentials customers can upgrade to this new, faster tier at any time. Customers who subscribe to Internet Essentials Plus and enroll in ACP will effectively get broadband for free after the $30/month government discount is applied. Xfinity Mobile Comcast’s top-rated Xfinity Mobile service, which includes 5G, is now available to customers enrolled in ACP, giving them the ability to save money on their connectivity needs inside and out of the home. Internet Essentials customers can use their $30/month ACP discount to pay for both Xfinity Internet and Xfinity Mobile service. For example, an Internet Essentials customer (paying $9.95/month) can add one line of Unlimited on Xfinity Mobile ($45/month) for $24.95/month after applying the ACP discount. Xfinity Mobile has no line access or activation fees and comes with unlimited talk and text, so customers only pay for cellular data. Customers can mix and match between two straightforward plans on Xfinity Mobile with 5G included, Unlimited or By the Gig, and pair these mobile plans with any tier of Internet service to provide ultimate flexibility. They can also switch back and forth between Unlimited and By the Gig mobile plans at any time. In addition, Xfinity Mobile devices automatically connect to millions of Xfinity WiFi hotspots across the country to reduce customers’ dependence on cellular and save money. Sign up for ACP Eligible households that enroll in the program can receive $30/month toward their Internet and mobile service ($75/month on Tribal lands). New and existing Xfinity Internet or Internet Essentials customers can visit www.xfinity.com/acp or call 844-389-4681 for more information, to determine eligibility, and sign up. Today’s announcement is part of Project UP, Comcast’s $1 billion commitment to reach tens of millions of people over the next 10 years with the tools, resources, and skills needed to succeed in a digital world.

About Internet Essentials Internet Essentials is Comcast’s signature digital equity initiative and the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. In 10 years, it has helped connect 10 million low-income Americans to broadband Internet at home, most for the very first time. It has a comprehensive design that addresses each of the three major barriers to broadband adoption. This includes multiple options to access free digital literacy training in print, online, and in person; the option to purchase a heavily subsidized, low-cost Internet-ready computer; and low-cost, high-speed Internet service for $9.95 a month, plus tax.

QSR Automations Breaks into the Senior Living Sector

QSR Automations

QSR Automations, the global leader in restaurant technology, will now bring its innovative solutions to senior living operators around the country after entering a partnership with one of the nation’s leading providers of exceptional senior care. Leveraging its ConnectSmart platform, QSR Automations is poised to help senior living communities maximize efficiency in both front-of-house and back-of-house operations. Features including delayed timing and recipe integration ensure that dishes are made consistently and delivered to the table at exactly the right time, while servers and hosts can view the progress and status of each order without ever leaving the front desk. Hosts can check seating capacity in a dining room against reservations and parties waiting in a lobby to alert kitchen staff to the next rush and adjust labor accordingly. All of these efficiencies result in a calmer, quieter kitchen, and a more pleasant dining experience for guests. “Residents moving into senior living communities today are active, cultured, and unique, and they expect their dining experience in their new home to be the same,” said Connor Joffe, Senior Living Business Consultant at QSR Automations, citing a study by Mather Lifeways Institute on Aging that found that 80 percent of residents had a strong interest in the culinary experience of their communities—more than any other service line. “Operators that layer in efficient technology that replicates that of a traditional, world-class restaurant experience will come out on top.” Restaurant technology can also aid in off-premise ordering and contactless delivery, which may be crucial for residents who struggle with mobility, or are more vulnerable to COVID and other illnesses. QSR’s ConnectSmart platform can aid in timing to-go and delivery orders so they arrive at their destination the proper temperature, and automated packing checklists ensure dishes arrive with all utensils and condiments while eliminating waste. According to a senior living industry staffing survey conducted by Sodexo in August 2021, a third of senior living facilities have already invested in online and off-premise ordering capabilities, and technologies to improve labor and resource productivity, and an additional third plan to make similar investments in the future. “Our fully customizable solutions integrate seamlessly with existing systems, so communities aren’t required to start from scratch with all new technologies,” said Joffe. “We can meet each customer where they are and address their unique pain points to enhance staffing and operational efficiencies, and ultimately the resident experience.” To schedule an interview with Connor Joffe, business consultant, senior living at QSR Automations to support your outlet’s coverage of restaurant technology in use in senior living facilities, please contact Beth Clayton at bethc@thebsmnt.com. About QSR Automations QSR Automations, headquartered in Louisville, KY with offices in the United Kingdom, is a global industry leader in kitchen automation and guest management services. Since 1996, restaurant operators have turned to the brand’s signature platform, ConnectSmart, for customized solutions to improve the guest experience and drive operational excellence. Used in 21 of the nation’s top 25 casual dining chains, ConnectSmart leverages data to create customized solutions that make calmer kitchens, simpler workflows, and happier guests. We didn’t just pioneer restaurant technology. We perfected it.

ibble

Making the partnership even more powerful and expanding on ibble's ability to facilitate conversations, the social media app also announces the Super Events feature. "When you ask a marketer what the best way is to market, they almost always say 'word of mouth' marketing. But when you ask where they spend their money it is rarely on word-of-mouth marketing," said Raymond Kaminski, CEO, and co-founder of ibble. "The way we built ibble, companies can now see and hear the power of word-of-mouth marketing. Our Super Events feature only adds to this by showing what was most talked about at SXSW, removing the hype and getting into the conversations that matter most – yours," "We're big believers in ibble because it allows creators and brands to connect with their audience in a more authentic way compared to the social media platforms of the last decade," said Mitch Morales, Founding Partner, Managing Director at Unknown Ventures. "The new Super Event feature is a great example of how the app generates new valuable touchpoints for users by blending digital and IRL experience." ibble is built with distinct features that positively impact how, when, and why people communicate on the social media app. With ibble, you do more than simply follow, explore and share. ibble makes conversations better by allowing users to learn and gain new perspectives through friends "sparking" conversations sharing news to the ibble community or a private group of friends. Because ibble bases conversations and questions on audio or video, it is easier to see others' true perspectives, connect at a deeper level, ask questions. Experts and influencers have the freedom to choose how and when to talk with their community without losing the conversation. "Our Super Event feature allows people to dive deeper into events, connecting with brands and participants at a deeper level," said Irving Lee, Co-founder, and Head of Partnerships. "We have built an innovative platform that bridges social media, engagement, and events with Super Events that captures experiences and conversations in one single place, and that is something that has never been available before." The Super Event feature was built to connect event participants deeper with brands, the event itself, and other participants. Super Event also removes FOMO (fear of missing out) by allowing people to be everywhere at once by showcasing everything happening at the event and giving the end-user the ability to move between experiences fluidly and virtually. Through ibble, users are given the unique experience to ask event experts questions before getting on stage. With the spark feature, ibble users can spin-off conversations to share their perspectives with video or audio. More importantly, these sparked conversations continue to grow and gain depth long after the event or presentation has ended. "The Super Event feature will improve the participant experience, speaker experience, and overall event. With ibble event badge holders, creators and partners will be able to take full advantage of the event without feeling the pain of being pulled in too many directions," added Mr. Kaminski.
