Low-Cost, High-Speed Internet for Low Income Households
A home Internet connection is more essential now than ever for today’s families. In 10 years, Internet Essentials has connected a cumulative total of more than 10 million Americans to all the opportunities the Internet has to offer – from education and job skills training to healthcare resources. In California, we are proud that more than 1 million students, parents, veterans, those with disabilities and seniors are connected to the Internet at home as part of the Internet Essentials program, which is the nation’s largest, most comprehensive, and most successful low-income broadband adoption initiative.
Over the next 10 years, Comcast has committed $1 billion to reach 50 million people from low-income families with the tools and resources they need to succeed in a digital world. We’ll do this by connecting people to the Internet at home, equipping safe spaces with free WiFi and working with thousands of nonprofit community organizations, city leaders, and business partners to create opportunities, particularly in media, arts, technology, and entrepreneurship.
