Low-Income Internet Program
What: Internet Program
Comcast recently launched a new program aimed at reducing the digital divide, or the gap between high- and low-income communities in Internet accessibility and digital literacy. Low income families will now have access to fast internet connection for $9.95 month and unlike other offerings, it is not a promotional advertisement (that $9.95 is a permanent price).
A household is eligible to participate in Internet Essentials if it meets all of the following criteria: Is located where Comcast offers Internet service, has at least one child receiving free school lunches through the National School Lunch Program, has not subscribed to Comcast Internet service within the last 90 days, does not have an overdue Comcast bill or unreturned equipment.
Low income families will have access to a fast internet connection for just $9.95 per month.
The client will have to call 1-855-846-8376 (it is a toll free number) to prequalify over the phone. Comcast also has low cost computers that are available for $149.99+ tax that is available at initial enrollment. For more information visit http://www.internetessentials.com/
