Internet Essentials is helping low income families afford the internet.


Comcast wants to make sure every student and family has access to the internet, no matter their income level.

Internet Essentials allows low income families access to the internet with a low monthly rate of $9.95. The nationwide program first began in 2011 and has reached over 220,000 households, with 14,000 households residing in the Atlanta area.

“Compared to a year ago, we have more than doubled the number of families here in metro Atlanta who are now able to complete school assignments, access government resources, apply for jobs and scholarships and pay bills at home,” Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen said. “With the unwavering support of schools, community organizations, legislators and other partners in Atlanta and nationwide, our Internet Essentials program has been making demonstrable progress in closing the digital divide.”
