Through the Internet Essentials program offered by APS partner Comcast, many families have received a big discount on broadband Internet and a desktop computer. Comcast is offering the program again this upcoming year.
Internet Essentials provides affordable access to the Internet, a discount-priced computer and computer skills training to low income families. Broadband service is offered to families for $9.95 per month with the option to purchase a computer for less than $150. Free access to digital literacy training is also offered.
In order to be eligible for the program, households must be located where Comcast offers service, have at least one child receiving free or reduced price school lunches through the National School Lunch Program and be a new Comcast Internet subscriber.
Interested families should call Comcast at 1-800-266-2278 or visit internetessentials.com for more information.
