Comcast works to bridge the digital divide for all Coloradans. They recently shared for the eleventh time in seven years, they are expanding the eligibility of the Internet Essentials program to include low-income veterans.
Internet Essentials is the largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program for low-income families in the U.S. Since 2011, the company connected more than six million low-income individuals to the Internet at home, most for the very first time. Including 240,000 individuals across Colorado!
In addition, they announced their second biggest expansion ever in eligibility for the program to low-income veterans living in their service area. Now, as many as one million low-income veterans will be able to apply. Fewer than 70 percent of low-income veterans have Internet access. Veterans have stood up for our country, and Comcast believes it’s time to stand up for them by providing access to life-changing digital tools and resources.
