Low-cost Internet now available to more families

February 1, 2012

Comcast has expanded access to its low-cost Internet Essentials program, which provides $9.95/month Internet access and free training to low-income families. The service is available to families participating in the National School Lunch Program.

When the program was rolled out last summer, eligibility was limited to those receiving free lunches. With today’s announcement, eligibility has now been extended to those receiving reduced-price lunches as well.

Additionally, families can now apply at schools and receive instant approval, rather than mailing an application to Comcast. So front offices, be on your toes and make sure you are ready to sign up your families!

The announcement also includes some other interesting changes, which I will cover in a follow-up post.
