Internet Essentials — Low-Cost Home Internet Service

Courtesy Post from MSDE

We know that many students and their families depend on the internet, whether at school or at home, for homework, to search for jobs, access financial or government services and much more. Having the internet at home is critical to ensuring that students have the ability to stay connected to online assignments, classmates and teachers.


Because of this, the low-cost home internet service called Internet Essentials from Comcast. Internet Essentials has been designed as a comprehensive, wrap around program to address each of the major barriers to broadband adoption. It provides low-cost internet services for $9.95 a month; the option to purchase an internet-ready computer for less than $150; and access to free digital literacy training in print, online, and in person.


Any household -with at least one child — that is eligible for the National School Lunch Program, may qualify for Internet Essentials. lf the student attends a Title I school, where 40% of students are eligible for the National School Lunch Program, the application process will be streamlined. In addition, households may be eligible for Internet Essentials if they receive HUD housing assistance.


For more information about the program and regarding receiving materials, you can visit www.internetessentials.com or contact Kevin Broadhurst at kevin broadhurst@comcast.com or call him at 301.836.9436
