Mayor Kasim Reed, Gov. Nathan Deal and Comcast take steps to bridge the digital divide in Atlanta

East Atlanta --  While America has increasingly become a digital nation, many low-income families are left at a great disadvantage because they don’t have Internet service at home. Internet Essentials has been designed to address this problem and help make broadband adoption a reality for more families. It addresses all three of the main barriers to broadband adoption that research has identified: 1) a lack of understanding of how the Internet is relevant and useful; 2) the cost of a home computer, and 3) the cost of Internet service.

Mayor Reed will host a press conference to kick off the Internet Essentials Program in Atlanta, a new initiative that helps provide internet connection to low-income families who have children receiving free school lunch as part of their enrollment in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).
