Action United has canceled a rally scheduled for today at the Comcast Corp. headquarters over issues related to the discounted Internet service.
The group says that it has scheduled a meeting with a Comcast executive for Jan. 10 and that there are plans to track why families seem to be having difficulty enrolling in the program, which Comcast launched earlier this year to close the gap in the "digital divide."
"We're satisfied for now," said Action United spokeswoman Jennifer England.
Comcast officials said they were not aware of Action United's concerns involving Internet Essentials until Tuesday.
The company agreed to the program aimed at disadvantaged families during negotiations with the Federal Communications Commission over its purchase of NBC Universal Inc.
