Comcast to offer subsidized Internet service to low-income families

If you live in an area served by Comcast and your kids receive free lunches at school through the National School Lunch Program, you may qualify for a new Internet service from Comcast, which costs just $9.95 a month.

Along with the requirements above, to be eligible for the specially discounted service, dubbed Internet Essentials, you must also not have signed up for a Comcast Internet hookup over the last 90 days, and you must not have an overdue Comcast bill or still be hanging onto Comcast equipment that’s supposed to be returned.
