Kudos to Comcast for doing the right thing. Check out this Boston Globe article.
According to Comcast:
“In just 16 months, Internet Essentials has helped put a real dent in the digital divide and connected more than 150,000 low-income families, or 600,000 Americans, to the power of the Internet, most for the first time in their lives. To put that in perspective, that’s approximately the entire population of Washington, D.C., or Boston. Internet Essentials is not just about broadband adoption, however. It’s also about what the Internet can do for families, from finding a job to completing homework to accessing vital health care resources. While we’re pleased with our progress to date, we have more work to do to bring more families into the digital age.”
