DALLAS -- AT&T is making wireline home Internet service more affordable for low-income households starting today through Access from AT&T, a new program designed to help bridge the digital divide.

Qualifying households will get the fastest of three speed tiers – 10Mbps, 5Mbps or 3Mbps –available at their address. Internet speeds provided at 10Mbps and 5Mbps will cost $10 a month, and Internet speeds at 3Mbps will cost $5 a month. We will also waive installation and Internet equipment fees for participating households. Additional taxes and fees may apply.

Access from AT&T is available to households with at least one resident participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, and located within the 21 states where we offer home Internet service.

"We're making it easier for more people to connect to friends, family, their communities and the possibilities of the Internet," said Cheryl Choy, vice president wired voice and broadband products, AT&T. "Access from AT&T is an affordable Internet option available to millions of Americans with limited budgets."

"At EveryoneOn, we believe that a home Internet connection is life-changing. From completing homework online to applying for a job to interacting with family and friends, a connection to the digital world is vital for all Americans" said Chike Aguh, chief executive officer of EveryoneOn. "Access from AT&T, and other programs like it, will help more low-income Americans experience the opportunity that the Internet provides."

We're working with school districts and national and community-based organizations to educate eligible households on Access from AT&T. The new, low-cost program will be available through April 2020. Complete program details are available at att.com/access.

Good thing!
Good thing to know AT&T, being almost a monopoly, at least understands its social responsibility.
