Comcast today announced it has now connected more than six million low-income Americans to the Internet through its Internet Essentials program, the largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program for low-income families in the U.S. In addition, the company is significantly expanding Internet Essentials eligibility to low-income veterans, nearly one million of whom live within Comcast’s national footprint.
Since 2011, Comcast has invested more than half a billion dollars to support digital literacy training and awareness, reaching more than 8.5 million low-income Americans. In addition, the company has sold more than 85,000 subsidized computers to Internet Essentials users.
