Call us fans. Call us groupies. Call us devotees. Whatever you call us, call ConnectAll one of the best low-income internet plans available.
Our readers have complained that other low-income internet services are not available where they live. Or that they are not eligible for one reason or another. But ConnectAll is very, very different.
It offers high-speed internet service all 50 states plus Washington, DC (unfortunately, the service is not available in Puerto Rico) and it has a variety of ways in which people can qualify.
No, that’s really understating the situation.
Please allow us to correct ourselves and say that it has a very wide variety of ways to qualify.
How to qualify for inexpensive internet from ConnectAll
To qualify as low-income for this program: someone needs to meet just one of the following criteria:
- Reside in a low-income zip code (which they can check by going here)/
- Receive any form of government assistance (EBT, SNAP, food stamps, etc)
- Currently a student (verified via student ID) or receive free/reduced lunches
- Have a total income less than $50k a year (verified via a paystub)
- Nonprofit organization (we’re including this, but doubt that it applies to any of our readers)
What does ConnectAll cost?
You pay a bit more up front for ConnectAll internet service, but in the long run you’ll get great internet for a great price.
Here’s what we mean: Once you’ve been approved, you’ll receive a mobile hotspot (Coolpad Surf) that costs $110.95. The first month of service will cost $11.95. In other words, your total upfront outlay will be $122.00. But after that initial outlay, your internet service will cost just $11.95 each following month.
You are not locked into a contract and quit the program anytime you want. The internet service itself offered by Mobile Citizen runs through Sprint’s network. But here’s the great thing: the hotspot is 4G LTE unlimited, there are no data limitations, no throttling, no data overages. And you can connect it up to 5-10 devices at any time. There isn’t any software you need download and install. You literally just power on the device, connect, and surf!
How to enroll with ConnectAll
And now we come to the problem. ConnectAll couldn’t have made enrollment more complex if they tried. And it appears as if they did try. But remember: once you’ve worked your way through the enrollment process, you’ll get great internet service for just $11.95 per month. We are going to quote the company’s enrollment instructions because they are complex and we want to make sure the info presented here is completely accurate.
