White House Unveils ConnectHome For Low-Income Households

While broadband for low-income households is fine and dandy, how are these people going to get online without a computer or other internet connected device?

Dubbed ConnectHome, the new initiative will bring high-speed broadband access to over 275,000 low-income households across the US. According to the White House, the pilot program will launch in 27 cities including New York, Boston and Seattle, as well as the Choctaw Tribal Nation in Oklahoma. The effort will initially connect nearly 200,000 children to the Web, according to the White House.
