Here’s good news for low-income residents of 21 states: A huge French conglomerate is now bringing you high-speed broadband service for just $14.95 per month.
Most Americans have never heard of Altice, but millions of those same Americans are about to find out about its Economy Internet plan.
Altice now owns two of the largest American internet service providers — Suddenlink and Cablevision. Both of those broadband communications companies are now offering Economy Internet, a brand new low-income internet plan that costs just $14.95 per month. Or as they say in their recent press release, they are “providing eligible families and senior citizens with access to fast, high-quality internet connectivity at an affordable price.”
What you get for $14.95 per month
Economy Internet may not be quite as inexpensive as some of the other low-income internet plans available from other companies, but it’s still a hell of a good deal considering what you get for what you pay.
- Broadband speeds of up to 30 Mbps downstream
- In-home WiFi at no extra cost as well as free modem
- Email service
- No data caps
Offer & Eligibility:
- $14.99 per month with no annual contract
- Available to households who qualify for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and senior citizens who qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- New Optimum and Suddenlink internet customers
Are you eligible?
One of the things we really like about Economy Internet is that unlike other low-income internet plans that make are restricted to a narrow range of customers, two completely different groups of people may be eligible for the plan.
- You may be eligible IF at least one child in your household qualifies for the National School Lunch Program.
- You may be eligible IF you are a senior citizen who qualifies for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
In both cases, please note the use of the word “qualifies.” That means your child does not need to receive free school lunches, and that the senior citizen does not need to receive, SSI. In both cases they only have to qualify for the program.
Where is Economy Internet available?
Suddenlink’s Economy Internet plan is now offering high-speed, low-income internet in 16 states : Arkansas, Arizona, California, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Cablevision is now offering Economy Internet in New York City and several surrounding states: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
In other words, millions of low-income Americans now have another way to bring high-speed broadband service into their homes.
Altice sums it all up
Altice issued a press release touting its new Economy Internet program. One paragraph jumped out at us:
“As the internet becomes increasingly important for education and accessing critical information and services, Altice USA is pleased to expand our low-cost broadband service to connect even more families and seniors across our U.S. footprint,” said Dexter Goei, Altice USA chairman and CEO, in a statement. “We remain committed to supporting programs that help bridge the digital divide within our local communities, and ensuring that consumers across the country have access to affordable internet connectivity is a major step in reaching that goal.”
We’re positive that low-income Americans in 21 states join us in thanking you.
