#ATT #SNAP – AT&T access now available to area SNAP participants : AT&T is making wireline home Internet service more affordable for low-income households 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 – 10 Mbps, 5 Mbps or 3 Mbps – available at their address.
Internet speeds provided at 10 Mbps and 5 Mbps will cost $10 a month, and Internet speeds at 3 Mbps will cost $5 a month. Installation and Internet equipment fees for participating households will be waived. 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 within the 21 states where AT&Toffers home Internet service.
“We’re making it easier for more people to connect to friends, family, communities and the possibilities of the Internet,” said Cheryl Choy, vice president of wired voice and broadband products, AT&T. “Access from AT&T is an affordable Internet option available to millions with limited budgets.”
AT&T is 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.
