Gordon County Schools and Comcast have teamed to bring affordable internet services to students and their families through the Comcast Internet Essentials Program.
Comcast now has an amnesty program for low-income families who could qualify for the Internet Essentials program, but have a past due balance with Comcast.
If families have outstanding bills that are more than one year old, then as long as they meet all the other eligibility criteria, they can apply to the program and Comcast will offer amnesty on their unpaid bills for the purpose of connecting to Internet Essentials.
Families who enroll in the program may also qualify for a low-cost computer. Households with children who receive free or reduced price lunches through the National School Lunch Program generally qualify for the discounted price.
To take full advantage of this excellent opportunity, contact the Comcast Internet Essentials Helpline at 1-855-8-INTERNET or visit Here for more information or to begin the application process.
