News from the Office of Broadband Development newsletter…
Last week, Comcast and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the expansion of Internet Essentials to all public housing and HUD assisted residents living in Comcast’s service area.
With this change, the program will no longer be limited to households with students in grades K-12 that qualify for free and reduced school lunch. It is expanded to include seniors, veterans and adults without children. Approximately 65 percent of HUD assisted households do not have school age children and will be newly eligible for this program. Internet Essentials provides a 10Mbps download broadband connection, including a wireless router, for $9.95 per month plus taxes.
