Comcast Launches Internet for Low-Income Families

When Comcast acquired NBC Universal, a condition of the sale was for Comcast to offer low priced internet access for low-income families in their franchise areas. Comcast has instituted a plan called Internet Essentials which will provide the basics of broadband internet for $9.95 a month. Candidates must meet the program’s criteria for eligibility.

"Access to the Internet has the potential to be a great equalizer and a life-changing technology. Internet Essentials helps level the playing field for low-income families"
