Comcast has previously offered low-cost internet, computer equipment and free digital literacy training to families with at least one child eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program.
The internet was priced at $9.95 per month with no installation charges or additional fees.
Now the company has come out and will offer six month of free internet to families that qualify.
Here is what the company had to say:
“Comcast will include up to six months of complimentary service for any new family that has not yet applied for Internet Essentials. Families who are approved for Internet Essentials between August 4th and September 20th, 2014 will receive up to six months of Internet service. We’re doing this because there is no more important back to school supply than Internet service at home. In today’s classrooms, as well as in the workforce, students need to be digitally ready.”
We applaud the company for this program.
