About the Project

The world has gone digital. Today, the Internet is no longer just a convenience. It has become essential for success. That’s why the Digital Education Organization has partnered with Comcast to make access to the Internet affordable.

Comcast Internet Essentials brings affordable home Internet to students and their families. While participating in Internet Essentials, customers receive:

  • Fast home Internet for just $9.95 a month + tax
  • No price increases, no activation fees, or equipment rental fees
  • A low-cost computer available at initial enrollment for just $149.99 + tax
  • Access to free Internet training — online, in print and in person

With Internet Essentials, families can do all the things they want to do online, like
email, homework, sharing photos, job searches, paying bills, watching videos,
downloading music and much more.

  • It is located where Comcast offers Internet service
  • It has at least one child eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program
  • It has not subscribed to Comcast Internet service within the last 90 days
