AT&T launches internet service for low-income families2016-04-26 02:56 by Daniela
AT&T has announced that it will offer affordable internet plans for low-income households. The program is part of an agreement AT&T made with the FCC as a part of the merger with DirectTV. The program will be available until 2020.
Elegible families are those, in which at least one person receives Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits from the US Department of Agriculture. And of course they should live in one of those 21 states in which AT&T has wireline network.
The company will offer three discounted plans: Internet connection speeds of 3 megabits a second for $5 a month, and two faster options, both for $10 a month (10 Mbps and 5 Mbps).
Those who qualify for the plans will not be able to choose their speed. Instead, they will be assigned the fastest available based on where they live.
