How to Get Access to the Internet for Low-Income Older Adults

Remember that Not Everyone has Access to the Internet – What can be done? All telecommunication companies are required to provide access to the internet via a program that subsidizes low-income families. These programs offer internet services at a rate of $9.95 per month. Families must demonstrate that they meet income requirements under the Lifeline Program.
