One year ago, Comcast launched Internet Essentials, a program designed to help close the digital divide. They have worked with thousands of partners across the nation to get students and their families connect to the Internet at home, improving students' ability to do research, write papers and collaborate with classmates.
This year they have made significant program enhancements to bring the Internet to even more children and their families. Comcast has expanded eligibility to now include families with children eligible to receive free or reduced price school lunches through the National School Lunch Program. They have also doubled Internet speeds so students in the program can utilize the Internet even faster.
While participating in Internet Essentials, students and their families receive:
Fast home Internet for just $9.95 a month plus tax.
No price increases, no activation fees and no equipment rental fees.
A low-cost computer available at initial enrollment for just $149.99 plus tax.
Access to free Internet training in English and Spanish - online, in print and in person.
