Comcast Testing Its Internet Essentials Program with Seniors

Comcast has announced that it’s testing an expansion of its low-cost Internet Essentials program for senior citizens in San Francisco and Palm Beach County, Florida. Internet Essentials offers download speeds of up to 10 Mbps and a Wi-Fi router for $9.95 per month for low-income households. So far, the Internet Essentials program has required that a household have a child eligible for the National School Lunch Program, but Comcast has not yet released the eligibility requirements for seniors.favicon follow link
