Eagle Communications is a small media conglomerate (well, small when compared to cable giants like AT&T and Comcast Communications) that owns and operates 59 cable systems in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado (plus 28 radio stations in the same states). It is now offering a $9.95 per month Internet plan for qualifying residents of those states.
Here’s how Eagle describes its program and its philosophy on its website:
Eagle’s goal is simple: We want to connect people. We desire to provide efficient and high-quality communication services to our customers in each community through advanced technology and the customer service to back up our belief that our customers and our audience are our most important assets.”
Eagle Communications believes technology is one of the greatest tools students can have both in and out of the classroom. We are also very aware that not all students are afforded the same access to high-speed Internet services in their homes.
To help address this important issue, we are announcing the launch of the Eagle Connect 2 Compete (C2C) program. Eagle is pleased to announce families who qualify for free lunches through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) can receive 5 Mb high-speed Internet service for $9.95 per month and free modem use for two years. No tax dollars will be spent for this program, this is just another way that Eagle is keeping “Our Community…Connected.”
Eagle’s low-income Internet plan explained
If your family needs Internet service, but can’t afford those high bills that usually come with ordinary Internet service, Eagle’s plan is a godsend. Instead of being $40-70 per month or even more, Eagle offers you:
- $9.95 per month
- 5Mb high-speed Internet
- Free Modem
- A two-year price guarantee
That’s great news for adults looking for jobs that are only advertised on the Internet, and great news for kids who need the Internet to do their homework.
How to qualify for Eagle’s low-income Internet plan
Eagle keeps the rules pretty simple. Here are the three things you need to qualify:
