Nearly five million households with school-age children do not have Internet service at home. Lack of Internet service makes it difficult for students to complete homework, creating a “homework gap,” placing students without access at a disadvantage as compared to their peers who do have such access.
EveryoneOn, a national nonprofit working to ensure all students have access to Internet service at home, is pleased to inform you about an upcoming new low-cost wireline home Internet offer for your students and their families:
Access from AT&T will launch April 22, 2016. Qualifying households include those:
With at least one resident who participates in the U.S. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP);
With an address in AT&T’s 21-state service area, at which AT&T offers wireline home Internet service; and
Without outstanding debt for AT&T fixed Internet service within the last six months or outstanding debt incurred under this program.
AT&T will assign the fastest of these speed tiers available at the customer’s address:
10 megabits per second, for $10 per month.
5 megabits per second, for $10 per month.
3 megabits per second, for $5 per month.
