Internet Essentials Program by Comcast Provides Affordable, High-Speed Internet Access
Comcast significantly expands eligibility for Internet Essentials, a low-cost home Internet service, to include all qualified low-income households in its service area.
We know that many students and their families depend on the Internet, whether at school or home, so they can do homework, search for jobs, access financial or government services, and much more. The Christina School District recognizes that having the Internet at home is critical to ensuring that your child can stay connected to online assignments, classmates, and teachers.
That is why we want to make sure that you know about a low-cost home Internet service called Internet Essentials from Comcast.
Features of Internet Essentials include:
• $9.95 per month + applicable taxes
• No Contract
• No Credit Checks
• No Installation Fee
• In-Home Wifi included at no cost
Now for more excellent news. Comcast has recently expanded eligibility for Internet Essentials to include all qualified low-income households in its service area. Service is now available to even more households beyond those participating in the National School Lunch Program and receiving housing assistance, including Medicaid, SNAP, SSI, and others.
We want all our students to have the opportunity to do their homework at home, and we are excited to partner with Comcast and the Internet Essentials program to provide affordable internet access to your family.
