Are you struggling to find affordable home internet? Comcast and Spectrum are offering affordable internet plans that can be free if you qualify. These plans target low-income families that want help with their internet.
This is all a part of the Affordable COnnectivity Program by the federal government to help low-income families get internet.
Comcast has a program called Internet Essentials that may just help you get 50 Mbps internet for just $9.95 a month or 100 Mbps internet for $29.95 a month if you qualify. What is even better is if you qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program, you can get these plans for free.

Internet Essentials provides affordable home Internet for qualifying households ($9.95/mo for up to 50 Mbps, or $29.95/mo for up to 100 Mbps) — as well as low-cost computers, free WiFi hotspots, and free Internet training.
