Through budget and policy recommendations to the General Assembly, the Education Oversight Committee (EOC) has supported initiatives to expand internet access to students in classrooms and beyond the traditional school day to students at home. Therefore, I want to inform you of an opportunity for low-income customers to receive affordable internet service. The following information may be useful for your parents to have, especially when they are registering for the new school year.
Access from AT&T® provides an affordable way for eligible low-income consumers to get affordable internet access. Households with at least one resident participating in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) may qualify for internet service at $5 or $10 per month, depending on the speed available. In addition, installation and internet equipment fees will be waived for participating households. Potential customers can learn more and see if they qualify by visiting https://att.com/access, or by calling 1-855-220-5211 for assistance in English or 1-855-220-5225 for assistance in Spanish.
