Free internet for low income

4 Aug, 2014

Comcast offers six months of free internet access to people who apply for its Internet Essentials program, which offers discounted internet access to families with at least one child in the National School Lunch Program. After the six month period, internet access costs $9.95 per month. Comcast executive vice president David Cohen says this change is aimed at making sure low-income students have a chance to excel:

Internet Essentials is about transforming lives and inspiring a new generation of leaders to be digitally ready to access the information and tools all students need to succeed in the 21st century.
