We are excited to announce that Comcast’s Internet Essentials program is now available to more than 22 million HUD-assisted homes nationwide, including more than 17,000 households in Utah. This includes Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher, and Multifamily programs.
Internet Essentials from Comcast is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive high-speed internet adoption program. It provides low-cost high-speed internet service for $9.95 a month plus tax; the option to purchase an internet-ready computer for under $150; and multiple options to access free digital literacy training in print, online and in-person. For more information, or to apply for the program, visit www.InternetEssentials.com or call 1-855-846-8376. Spanish speakers should call 1-855-765-6995.
This new expansion is made possible thanks to a collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) ConnectHome initiative.
“ConnectHome is opening doors of opportunity for our next generation of Americans,” said HUD Secretary, Julián Castro. “[The] announcement has the potential to transform the lives of hundreds of thousands of kids across the nation by giving them the tools to reach their full potential. We’re grateful to Comcast for joining the ConnectHome initiative, which has extended its reach to more than 1.5 million children in one short year.”
