Affordable Internet at Home for Eligible Households

 

Internet Essentials is Comcast’s community program to get internet to families (plus seniors, and community college students in certain areas).  Comcast has expanded the program to where ever Comcast offers service.  

If you qualify for the program, you can also purchase a Windows 10 laptop or desktop computer with Microsoft Office installed for $150.
Please check out Internet Essentials and even if the program will not work for you, help me spread the word. Thanks. Internet Essentials from Comcast

Did you know that here in the Bay area, in cities like Palo Alto about 94% of the households have broadband. But in Trenton, New Jersey, and Flint, Michigan – where poverty rates are way above the national average – 60% or more of households do not have fixed broadband at home – that is, less than half are connected. That gap of more than 50 points defines the digital divide in this country. Source: Comcast
 
That’s why your help is needed to spread the word.
