Comcast is committed to bringing the power of the Internet to more students and families. Comcast’s Internet Essentials program is bringing fast and affordable home Internet service to more households across our state.
Under the Internet Essentials program, Internet service is offered at an affordable $9.95 per month plus tax with no activation fees, equipment rental fees, or price increases. The program also offers the option of a low-cost computer and free Internet training in person, online, and in print. Families may be eligible if they have at least one child receiving free or reduced priced school lunches through the National School Lunch Program.
Educators, community organizations and civic leaders can register with Comcast’s partner portal for complimentary communications tools and resources to spread the word to eligible families.
Internet Essentials is one component of Comcast’s efforts to bridge the digital divide. Visit Comcast’s Internet Essentials website for more information about the program: http://www.internetessentials.com.
