Comcast Expands Low-Income Internet Program

Comcast announced today its largest-ever eligibility expansion for Internet Essentials, the cable giant’s program that subsidizes basic broadband service and low-cost computers to help increase adoption for low-income households in the cities Comcast serves. From a report: The program, which began 8 years ago with the merger of Comcast and NBCUniversal, will now be open to seniors and people with disabilities. To date, the program has connected more than 8 million low-income individuals from 2 million households, the company says. The Internet Essentials service, which costs $10 a month, provides download speeds of 15 megabits per second, which is slower than the FCC’s benchmark for broadband (25 megabits per second)
