Low-Cost Connection 

Internet: Comcast offers inexpensive broadband

Students can find a vast array of educational opportunities online these days — if their families can afford access. In November, Comcast held a press conference at the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington to remind Vermont parents about one way to help close the digital divide. Through its Internet Essentials program, Comcast offers broadband internet access for just $9.95 a month, plus tax, to families with school-age children in the federal free and reduced lunch program. The discount, which applies until the child graduates from high school, is also available to home schoolers. If you think you might qualify, apply now — Comcast spokesperson Jessica Forrest notes that Internet Essentials will only accept participants through the end of the 2013-2014 school year.

Internet Essentials: Find more information and apply at 855-846-8376 or internetessentials.com.
