Internet Essentials developed by Comcast is an exciting new program designed with the assistance of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to bridge America's digital divide.  In conformity with the National Broadband Plan, the program addresses key barriers to Internet access and adoption by providing affordable Internet access, the opportunity to purchase a computer and training to low-income families with at least one child receiving free or reduced lunches under the National School Lunch Program.  Participating families may be able to benefit from Internet Essentials for the entire life of their child's K-12 education, as long as they remain eligible and reside within the Comcast footprint.
