The internet has become an essential tool in our everyday lives. It has the power to connect people to a world of knowledge and opportunities, including greater access to education, healthcare, employment, news, and information.

That is why Comcast wants to make sure that you know about an affordable home Internet service called Internet Essentials(SM) from Comcast. Students and their families at your school may qualify if they are eligible to receive the National School Lunch Program. Internet Essentials provides high-speed Internet service for $9.95 a month plus tax; the option to purchase a desktop or laptop computer for $149.99; and access to free digital literacy training in print, online and in person.

Since the launch in 2011, Internet Essentials has connected more than 8 million low-income Americans. We have worked hard over the past 8 years spreading the word with school districts, community based organizations, cities, church groups, and many others but we know we can do more to close the digital divide. That is why we are proud to announce we are expanding the Internet Essentials program to all qualified low-income households. You may qualify if you have at least one child who is eligible for the National School Lunch Program, or if you receive public assistance such as housing assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, SSI, and others.

Students and their families at your school can apply by calling 1-855-8-INTERNET (1-855-846-8376) or by visiting InternetEssentials.com. Brochures are available in the main office at Wasatch Elementary.
