Affordable Internet Service for Low-Income Veterans

Comcast has expanded eligibility for its Internet Essentials program. The program ensures that low-income individuals have online access and in-home WiFi. This is important for veterans, especially considering the recent push for claims processing through the Department of Veterans Affairs website. We encourage eligible veterans to sign up and stay connected. Veterans may be eligible and can apply with VA pension or HUD-VASH documentation.

Internet Essentials customers have the option to purchase a laptop or desktop computer at a discounted price.

It includes Windows 10 and Microsoft Office!

This program is not limited to only `veterans. Low-income individuals on public assistance programs, such as the National School Lunch Program, Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, SSI, and others, may be eligible. This program is limited to households located in areas where Comcast provides internet service.

Applicants may qualify if:

  • Eligible for public assistance
  • Do not have outstanding debt to Comcast less than a year old
  • Live in a Comcast Internet service coverage area (and not subscribed to Comcast service within 90 days)

The program provides an online learning portal for its users from basic to advanced skills. Some in-person classes may be available nearby also.
