Starry Internet is Expanding its Low-Cost Broadband Service to Detroit





Today, Starry announced it will be rolling out its ultra-low-cost access program, Starry Connect, to underserved areas in Detroit, Michigan. This new service expansion is part of the company’s existing partnership with Microsoft’s Airband Initiative. The Detroit area is a location in severe need of reliable and affordable broadband as evidenced by recent data. According to research, nearly 40% of Detroit residents don’t have a broadband connection in their home, mainly due to the high cost. That includes 70% of all Detroit public school students who are going without home internet.

“Home broadband access is essential to daily life. And yet, millions of Americans continue to go without it due to high costs. We think that’s unacceptable,” said Virginia Lam Abrams, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs & Strategic Advancement for Starry. “We created Starry Connect to get broadband access to families who have been written off or left behind by traditional incumbent providers. By working with Microsoft, we can super-charge our impact in cities like Detroit, by being laser-focused on neighborhoods that are underserved by incumbents and as a result, are grossly under-connected to the digital tools they need to thrive.”

Starry Connect will bring high-quality, affordable internet connection to low-income and affordable housing communities in Detroit, as well as households in zip codes identified as having low levels of broadband adoption among Black and African American residents.

Starry Connect provides up to 30 Mbps symmetrical service with no data caps, no long-term contracts, no extra fees and all equipment, installation and customer care included for $15 per month.
